Common Causes of Uber Accidents

In the last several years, Uber has become a reliable mode of transportation for many people. It’s quick, convenient and affordable. However, there have also been an increased number of Uber accidents lately.

Here are the most common causes of Uber accidents that you should know about.

  • Speeding. Some Uber drivers are in a hurry so pick up and drop off passengers so that they can make more money. Unfortunately, however, speeding can increase the risk of an accident. Uber drivers who drive above the speed limit may have lower reaction times and may crash into another vehicle.
  • Distracted driving. Just like other drivers on the road, Uber drivers may have many distractions to deal with. They send or respond to text messages, talk on the phone, eat, look at a GPS or converse with passengers. These actions can take their eyes and attention off to the road ahead, which can cause an accident. They may not have enough time to respond to certain hazards if they are not completely focused.
  • Drunk driving. Many people call Uber after a night of drinking. Unfortunately, as a Fairfax Uber accident lawyer can confirm, sometimes the Uber drivers who pick them up are under the influence of alcohol. Alcohol can impair judgment, reduce focus and lower reaction times, which can all contribute to an accident.
  • Fatigue. Some Uber drivers spend long hours on the road. The more hours they are on the road, the more money they ultimately make. However, driving for multiple hours every day can get tiring, especially if Uber drivers also work another job. When Uber drivers are fatigued, they may lose focus of the road ahead and get into an accident.
  • Poor vehicle maintenance. Uber drivers are expected to maintain their vehicles. However, some may skimp on necessary maintenance because they do not want to spend the money. As a result, their vehicles are more likely to break down on the road and put others in danger.
  • Aggressive driving. Some Uber accidents result from aggressive driving. If Uber drivers swerve in and out of lanes, tailgate other vehicles or fail to use proper turn signals, they can cause an accident.
  • Bad weather. Many Uber drivers drive in all weather conditions, including rain, snow and ice. These weather conditions, however, can make the roads slippery and lower visibility. Uber drivers have a higher chance of getting into an accident while driving in bad weather.

If you have been hurt in an Uber accident, you should schedule a consultation with a Fairfax Uber accident lawyer from Cohen & Cohen to discuss your case in detail.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
