Morrow Uber Accident Attorney
It’s hard to imagine what we did before Uber came along and made getting a ride as easy as opening an app. With all that convenience, however, come some very real dangers. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in an Uber accident, contacting an experienced Uber accident lawyer in Morrow is the best path forward.
Uber Confuses the Issue of Insurance
If you’re injured as a result of someone else’s negligence in a traffic accident, you naturally look to insurance to compensate you for your losses, but Uber manages to confuse this issue. The following factors are the most relevant to this insurance conundrum:
- Uber’s drivers are not employees of Uber but are, instead, independent contractors. This lets the Uber company off the hook for a good deal of responsibility, including – in part – insurance coverage.
- Uber drivers drive to earn income – even though they aren’t professional drivers and need no special licensure, skill, or experience. Further, because most Uber drivers rely upon the income generated by the job, this pressure can lead to an increased risk of engaging in unsafe driving practices. These can include driving longer hours than is strictly safe, interacting excessively with the Uber app to help ensure correct pickups and dropoffs (which can be dangerously distracting), and much more.
- The insurance coverage offered by Uber is spotty, and determining how to proceed after an Uber accident is generally challenging at best.
