Ridesharing has been an excellent way of traveling in the last decade as they are easy and fast. However, what happens when a car accident occurs while riding? Now there are not only two people you have to be involved with the accident, but Uber as well. If one is injured in this accident, they now have to get compensation from not only personal insurance but a corporation as well. uber drivers are also not held to the same standard of experience and reliability many professional drivers do, and as such, are not themselves held to the same standard of care and caution.

How are Uber Drivers different from Professional Drivers?

Unlike professionals, Uber drivers do not choose which fares they receive, meaning they are often in areas they are not familiar with, increasing the odds they could get lost or turned around. As well as this, uber drivers pick up patrons in shops and stores, places where they must leave the main road, pull over and pick up passengers, and return to the main street again; all of which adds to the over risk these individuals are constantly taking. Finally, Uber drivers should, by their job description, be looking at their phones for either available riders or directions to that rider’s location. This constant distraction of looking at their phones only increases the danger these individuals are in regularly.
