Madison Uber Accident Attorney
Who doesn’t love hopping in an Uber and not worrying about any of the driving challenges we face when we drive ourselves. Uber has become a great option for everything from nights out to running errands on the fly. Uber accidents, however, happen, and they can be quite dangerous. If an Uber driver’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, consulting with an experienced Madison Uber accident lawyer is well advised.
Uber Drivers Have Heightened Responsibilities
Uber drivers are not actually employees of Uber, and they aren’t even professional drivers in the legal sense. Instead, they are contract workers who contract with Uber, and they do not need a commercial driver’s license – or even any special skills or experience to transport Uber passengers. Uber drivers do, however, face many of the same challenges that professional drivers do, including:
- Uber drivers must make frequent stops and starts and must enter and exit traffic frequently, which translate to increased accident risks.
- Uber drivers must interact with the Uber app – which directs them to their pickups and drop-offs – behind the wheel.
- Uber drivers are often pressed to make good time behind the wheel, and their pay depends upon it.
- Uber drivers sometimes push themselves beyond the boundaries of exhaustion in order to remain on the job and actively earning.
