More and more Washington DC residents and commuters are enjoying the convenience of Uber to get to and from the places they need to be and unfortunately, more and more people are needing to find a reputable Uber accident law firm Washington DC residents and commuters can rely on.
When Uber first began at the end of 2011, it was a boutique kind of service that catered to a small population of San Franciscans. It, along with Lyft and other app-based rideshare companies, quickly grew into a popular niche of mainstream consumers. Nowadays, everyone from kids to grandmothers, from people who own cars to people who do not, and people from all walks of life in cities and towns across America, are using Uber.
Many people’s everyday lives and commutes have been made easier because of the availability of app-based rideshare services. Prior to the advent of these kinds of services, many people who could not afford their own car or taxis, were confined to more time consuming modes of transportation such as the Metro, buses, vans, bicycles and walking. Nowadays, many people are saving hours of their day by taking a rideshare rather than public transportation to and from their jobs. Many people who have their own cars utilize Uber for a variety of reasons including running errands in areas where parking is difficult, to pick their children up when no one else is available to do this, and when people want to be responsible for having a beverages that contain alcohol without having to drive. Many people who used to use taxis, now prefer the streamlined system of the apps as well as things such as not having to have cash to utilize the service.
An unfortunate consequence of more and more people being able to take Uber is that more and more Uber drivers are getting into accidents when they have their apps open.
