Staten Island Uber Accident Lawyers
You have the right to file a legal claim following a motor vehicle accident. This is true even if the at-fault party was driving for Uber at the time of the crash. Not only could you recover compensation if you were in your vehicle during the crash, but also if you were a passenger inside the ride-share car.
If you suffered injuries in an accident on Staten Island, you could have a viable claim for compensation. We could assist you with investigating and pursuing your claim. To get started, contact an Uber accident lawyer from Douglas and London.
Factors that could lead to an Uber accident
There is a range of factors that could lead to a collision with an Uber driver. These factors could include:
- Driving While Intoxicated. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a dangerous combination.
- Driver Fatigue. A tired driver has the same diminished reaction time and decision-making ability as an intoxicated driver. Fatigue is a problem among ride-share operators, as many of them drive long shifts to make a living.
- Distracted Driving. Distracted drivers are one of the most common causes of motor vehicle accidents. This is common among Uber drivers, given their multiple responsibilities managing a mobile app and transporting their passengers.
- Inadequate Vehicle Maintenance. Unlike taxi drivers, ride-share operators drive their vehicles when actively using the app. Given lax inspection requirements, an Uber driver might allow their car to fall into disrepair. These poorly maintained vehicles could be more likely to cause an accident.
In many cases, ride-share companies will provide their drivers with substantial insurance coverage. To maximize your compensation, contact an Uber or Lyft accident lawyer as soon as possible.
