Norwalk Uber Accident Attorney

Uber Crash Injury Lawyer Norwalk

Do you love going out for a night on the town? Want to make the trip to Los Angeles from Norwalk for a party or a nice dinner with your spouse? Do you dislike having to navigate the crowded streets of Los Angeles County? If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s likely you will turn to the ride-sharing service Uber for transportation. As convenient as using Uber is, it can also be very scary. Do you really know how safe your driver is behind the wheel? Do you know if the driver is sober? These are legitimate questions you should consider before stepping foot into an Uber vehicle. It’s possible that if you get into an Uber vehicle you could wind up needing a Norwalk Uber accident attorney.

Why is Using Uber so Dangerous?

Uber has exploded in popularity in California and across the country. Millions of people use ride-sharing service multiple times per day. Many use it to commute to and from work. Others use it to get to the doctor’s office. Then there are those who use it to run errands or visit family. Don’t forget those who use Uber to get home safely after a night out on the town. Even though this seems like a smart idea, using Uber can be dangerous. Some reasons for this include the following:

  • Lack of liability: the company tends to deny all liability when there is an issue with one of its drivers. How do they get away with this? Easy; the drivers are independent contractors, not employees. The fine print of the Uber terms and conditions, which you agree to by using the app, removes all liability from the company. This includes if you are involved in an accident, a theft, an assault or any other crime.
  • Incomplete background check process: Uber claims that it performs a DMV check of all those who apply to drive for the company. The company also claims that it runs federal and multiple state background checks for its drivers. Despite these claims, there are still Uber drivers out there who have scary backgrounds related to driving and to other crimes.
  • Missing driving qualifications: there are missing driving qualifications for those who wish to drive for Uber. What does this mean? For starters, it means that the drivers are not held to the same standards as those who drive taxis in California. For example, taxi drivers in Los Angeles are required to have their fingerprints on record and must be able to pass a national FBI background check. What about Uber drivers? All Uber drivers need professionally is a car that is in good working order.
