DOES UBER HELP AFTER AN ACCIDENT?
Uber was launched around 2010 in San Francisco and started as an app for Bay Area residents to acquire cheap and readily accessible rides. Since that time, Uber has spread globally and become a multibillion-dollar business, with thousands and thousands of drivers in dozens of nations.
Uber has brought many benefits to the regions where it functions, such as more affordable and higher quality service than many taxi services, thousands of new jobs generated, and reduced levels of drunk driving. But despite these advantages, Uber may also be problematic, especially concerning how it manages auto accidents.
Uber’s history of helping its drivers and passengers after an accident has not always been great. Even with drivers and passengers being insured, Uber’s insurance is supposed to help people who were injured in an accident. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
People involved in an Uber accident will quickly see the company’s efforts to make the problem go away instead of giving the help and assistance the injured deserve.
UBER DRIVERS AND THE RISK INVOLVED
Uber drivers have a challenging job. They likely spend long hours daily on the road, often going into new and unknown areas in which they are unfamiliar with the design of the roads while also sometimes dealing with distracting passengers. These factors can greatly increase the risk of an Uber Accident.
Uber has also been criticized for its screening process. Some believe that the screening process is not thorough enough and can allow bad drivers to become Uber Drivers.
That being said, the large majority of Uber Drivers are responsible and safe drivers. Unfortunately, the few bad ones that end up Uber Drivers can cause quite a bit of damage. When an Uber accident happens and the driver involved had previous warning signs of being a bad or unqualified driver, then the company should be held accountable for the bad driver’s hiring.
GETTING COMPENSATION AFTER AN UBER ACCIDENT
Uber has an impressive record of success and has grown into a company valued at billions of dollars. What most people are not aware of is that Uber insures all of their drivers for $1 Million Dollars in liability and also for uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.
The majority of drivers don’t have more than $15,000 in insurance coverage. The insurance coverage that Uber provides for their drivers means that victims injured in an Uber Accident can get great compensation.
