Common Causes of Uber Accidents

Scanning for passengers is a dangerous practice that many ridesharing drivers participate in. If they are picking up or looking for passengers in an area that they are unfamiliar with, then they have to look closely and scan streets to find the person they were supposed to pick up. By being distracted, the driver is more likely to cause an accident.

Another cause of ridesharing accidents is driver fatigue. For many drivers this is a part-time job that they do in addition to another one or full-time employment. They may be working long hours without rest. These can contribute to fatigue and dangerous driving.

Common injuries after Uber Accidents

There are many bones, joints, and muscles throughout the body that are necessary for functioning. This is why any injury can have a long-lasting impact on a person’s life. Fractures, whiplash and traumatic brain injury are just some of the possible injuries.

Compensation after accident

Uber provides additional coverage as long as the driver also maintains their own comprehensive and collision coverage on their personal auto insurance policy. Call Lewis & Castagliola, P.A. to fight for you.
