Why Might Uber Not be a Safe Option?

If you’ve become accustomed to using Uber you might not have ever considered that it really isn’t safe. As good of an idea as Uber is, there are some safety concerns surrounding it that can put you in harm’s way each time you get into the car. Here are some reasons why Uber might not be a safe option:

  • Drivers are independent contractors and not employees (reduces liability of the company)
  • You don’t know the condition of the car (does the driver perform routine maintenance?)
  • Are the backgrounds (criminal and license) of the drivers checked?

These are just a few of the glaring safety issues that you could face when utilizing Uber for any type of travel. At Edward J Babbitt APC & Associates, you will find that our team has the experience necessary to investigate Uber accidents and file lawsuits on behalf of our clients so you are successful in the pursuit of compensation for your injuries.

What to Do After an Uber Accident

If you ever find yourself involved in an Uber accident it’s important that you always remain on scene. You might think it’s alright to leave the scene since you were a passenger and not a driver, but this will hurt your chances of winning a personal injury claim against the negligent parties involved. Be sure to follow these tips when involved in an Escondido Uber accident:

  • Call 911
  • Take pictures of the damage and crash scene
  • Check on others for injuries
  • Allow emergency personnel to evaluate and treat you
  • Provide information about the crash to the police
  • Exchange contact information with all drivers involved, including the Uber driver
  • Accept medical transport to the hospital
  • Never admit fault
  • Do not talk to an insurance agent
