Uber Accident Attorney Oceanside

“Take an Uber to the mall.”

“Let Uber deliver the food.”

Two phrases that would have meant nothing ten years ago that almost everyone understands now. Today, Uber has transformed the transportation world, spawning the ridesharing revolution. Whether you need a ride to the ballgame or need a designated driver, Uber has become one of the number one ways to get around. Seeing that “U” sticker in a vehicle is normal now.

But if an Uber driver gets into an accident, you will have a lot of questions.

You can call the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt to find answers. One of the most experienced Uber accident attorneys in Oceanside, you can be sure you have the right person on your team.


There are hundreds of thousand of Uber drives on the roads all across the United States. Now that Uber is becoming a popular way for food delivery as well, there are sure to be many more Uber rides taking place.

Becoming an Uber driver isn’t really difficult in California. You just need to be 21 years old, have a fairly clean driving record, insurance coverage, and have an appropriate model year vehicle that has four doors. Uber drivers are just regular people that are not specifically trained to transport passengers. They aren’t taxi or bus drivers and there aren’t many state or municipal regulations that govern them. While summoning an Uber ride is easy and convenient, can you be sure it is safe?

Most Uber rides are safe. You expect your driver to be professional and safe on the roadway, but there have been accidents involving Uber drivers that have resulted in injuries and even death. If an Uber driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, distracted by their phones, or driving recklessly, then they should be held liable for damages or injuries they cause.

Even though each driver is an independent contractor, Uber offers insurance coverage. This coverage applies to accidents that happen while the driver has passengers as well as when they are waiting for fairs. If an accident happens, whether you are their passenger or another party outside of the vehicle, you could be owed compensation.

Babbitt, you will be getting experienced legal help that can deal with all parties involved. While you may just want an accident involving an Uber ride to be over with, we want you to know that you could be owed more than what insurance is offering. Before speaking with or giving any documents to an insurance company, seek legal advice.

An Uber accident that causes you injury could sideline you with major medical bills. If your injuries keep you from work for an extended period of time and you lose income, you could be in serious financial trouble. Someone else’s negligence should not jeopardize the livelihood of you and your family.
