Find out how to get compensation for your ridesharing claim from one of our personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com
Uber and other ridesharing apps have exploded in popularity in the past few years. These increasingly popular ridesharing apps have helped to decrease drunk driving incidents and no doubt saved lives. However, the increase in this ridesharing option has led to more cars out on the road which has directly led to more accidents out on the road. These relatively new cases have left passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers at a loss as to how to seek compensation. The question that must be asked is, who is responsible, Uber or the driver? Our personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com are here to answer that question and others for you.
To properly answer the question of liability, our personal injury attorneys will begin to build a strong case in your favor. One of the drawbacks of these ridesharing apps is that they are not driven by professional drivers and might lack the proper training in driving. To begin working for these ridesharing apps, the driver must have a personal vehicle, auto insurance, and a current driver’s license. This leaves quite a bit of room for candidates who have a criminal record or who have only recently begun driving to apply and be accepted to drive for these companies. We will begin an investigation by speaking to witnesses and gathering evidence that will show who the responsible party is and how they were negligent of the law. The Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com has successfully helped many injured clients and we are here to help you out in much the same manner.
The causes of these collisions are varied. Because Uber does not limit the number of hours that a single person can drive, many instances of accidents have occurred because the driver has put in long hours of driving to maximize their pay. Other common reasons for collisions include:
- A driver under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Distracted driving, including texting and other technology
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to follow traffic laws and regulations.
Any and all of these reasons can lead to serious and life changing injuries.
