In The Event Of An Uber Accident

  • Uber is a convenient and inexpensive ride sharing service that is an alternative to traditional taxi cabs. The Uber smartphone app allows users to call a driver to their location to be picked up and transported to their desired destination. Uber is popular because it provides an easy way to get around. There is also no need to pay parking fees, as may be the case when you are driving your own car.

    However, Uber is very different from a traditional taxi. Uber drivers are not professionals. They do not have to undergo special training or licensing. For a majority of Uber drivers, it is simply a part-time job to earn extra cash.

With no local or state regulations in place, an Uber accident can have very unfortunate consequences.
