Uber Accident Attorney Chula Vista

“Get an Uber.”

It wasn’t long ago that nobody knew what that meant, a time when people would have thought it crazy to catch a ride in someone’s personal vehicle.

Now? Now it’s the norm, opening our phones and pressing a button to summon a ride. We’re used to seeing vehicles with little “U” stickers on the front windshield. If you’ve taken an Uber ride before, then you know what to expect.

But what happens if you get into an accident involving an Uber driver? Do you know your next steps?

If this has happened to you and you need an Uber accident attorney in Chula Vista, then let the experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt help you.

Ridesharing Is Everywhere

California is no stranger to ridesharing services. They were born in this state and proliferated here first. With more than 400,000 Uber drivers around the country, many of them right here in this area, ridesharing is not a strange concept anymore. When you use an Uber, you are putting your trust in the Uber driver’s hands.

While most Uber rides are safe, sometimes, the drivers are negligent. There have been numerous cases of Uber drivers operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol and many cases of drivers distracted by their phones. This creates a hazard, not only for their passengers, but for other drivers and pedestrians on the roadway.

If an accident happens and you are injured, you may wonder if you are covered for medical costs and more. Uber does covers each independent driver with a $1 million liability policy. They also now insure drivers when they are waiting for a fair and not just when they are transporting a passenger, so if you are struck by an Uber driver, you may be eligible to recover compensation.

Any accident can put your livelihood in jeopardy, especially if you have to spend time in the hospital or miss work due to injuries. This doesn’t include any unexpected emotional distress from an accident.
