Handling Complicated Uber Accident Insurance Claims
Uber and other rideshare companies have made the lives of many people in Atlanta more convenient. While Uber can make the streets safer by reducing the number of drunk drivers or drivers who are unfamiliar with the city, Uber drivers can be negligent themselves and can cause accidents. If an Uber accident caused your injuries, you should not wait to contact our Atlanta Uber accident lawyer to discuss what happened and what to do next.
Causes of Uber Accidents
Like any car accident, Uber vehicles can crash for many reasons. Sometimes, an accident occurs due to the conduct of the Uber driver, including:
- Distracted driving, such as constantly looking at a phone to follow directions
- Fatigued driving from working long hours and late at night
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding or aggressive driving to try to get to a destination faster
- Failing to abide by all traffic laws
- Failing to keep their vehicle properly maintained
In some situations, the Uber driver is not at fault, as the crash occurred due to the negligence of another driver. It is important to identify who caused the accident to ensure you file your claim with the right insurance company.
Uber accident insurance claims can be complex, as you may have to file claims with the Uber driver’s policy, the Uber company policy, or a third-party driver’s policy. Our attorney will navigate this process for you to seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.
