Need An Injury Attorney Arizona – Uber Accident
Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft have a sick sense of justice. They are becoming notorious for denying responsibility to any claims that are brought forth. Each Uber ride has a million dollar liability policy but it does come into effect until the rider enters the vehicle. With the drivers racing on the road to get to a proximity to receive what rides they can, more and more accidents are occurring from the services every month. The drivers hired by these companies are not vetted as properly for safety as commercial vehicle drivers. They undergo only a simple background check that covers the last 7 years to find any accidents and violent crimes. They do submit to an alcohol or drug testing and once they have been hired they do not have to repeatedly show proof of commercial driver liability coverage. While there can be a lot of reckless drivers working for these companies, the majority of the fault relies on the company. Drivers are not restricted in the number of continuous hours they can work and with the low pay, they are just trying to make a living. However, all of these can result in acts of negligence if someone is hurt.
Swapping insurance information is usually fine for a simple fender bender but when there are injuries involved it can become an uphill battle for the victim to seek proper compensation. Whether you were a passenger riding in an Uber or Lyft, the driver of a car hit by one of the drivers, or a pedestrian or cyclist hit by them on the street then you need to consult with a personal injury attorney. Bringing your claim to these large companies can backfire severely. They will immediately pawn responsibility off to the driver and the driver’s personal insurance company. In order for the drivers to use their car for work purposes, especially when carrying passengers, requires a large hike in the price of their insurance. Many drivers for Uber and Lyft only maintain this at the beginning of their job and when an accident happens the insurance company will not cover the full claim.
