Beaver County Uber Accident Attorney

The rideshare service known as Uber has exploded in popularity across the country and Beaver County is no exception. Thousands of people use this service on a daily basis to get to and from work, class, the grocery store, the doctor, the library, the gym, and many other places. If you’ve used Uber in the past and felt uncomfortable or not safe enough, you understand how dangerous this service is. There’s no guarantee that the driver behind the wheel has a clean record (both regarding driving and crime) or that their vehicle is in good working condition. A Beaver County Uber accident attorney from the team of Shenderovich, Shenderovich, and Fishman is here to answer all of your questions following such an incident.

Why is Uber so Dangerous?

If you’ve used Uber in the past and found it convenient it might be difficult to understand why it can be such a dangerous service. Uber seems like a smart, convenient idea, especially for those who have spent a night out on the town and enjoyed some adult beverages. Despite this, the rideshare service can be very dangerous to use. Below is a list of some of the reason why Uber is dangerous:

  • Unknown driving history of Uber drivers
  • Uber drivers are contractors, not employees
  • Uber removes itself from liability when it comes to accidents involving its drivers
  • Unknown if background checks of drivers have been conducted since they are contractors
  • Unknown if vehicles being used are cared for or maintained properly

What to Do After an Uber Accident?

If you find yourself involved in an accident while riding in an Uber in the Beaver County area you need to know what to do in the moments immediately following the crash. What you do as a passenger in an Uber accident can help your chances of recovering compensation for injuries suffered as a result of the crash. Some important Uber accident tips are listed below:

  • Never leave the scene. Even though you are a passenger you need to remain at the scene
  • Accept medical evaluation and care from responding EMTs and firefighters
  • Provide a statement about the accident to responding police officers
  • Speak to those who witnessed the accident and obtain their contact information
  • Take pictures of the accident scene (vehicles involved, injuries, road conditions, road signs, and signals, etc)
  • Accept transport to the hospital if recommended by emergency personnel

It’s important for you to fulfill the entire list of tips above if you are ever involved in an Uber accident. Doing so will improve your chances of obtaining compensation for your injuries. That compensation can then be used to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.
