Uber provides 15 million rides every day and contracts with one-million Uber drivers just in the United States. Uber drivers qualify for their jobs by having a valid driver’s license, their own car, and a clean criminal background check. No special training or extra safe driving courses are required before a new Uber driver can pick up passengers.  

When you take an Uber ride, you don’t expect to be in a serious car accident, but that’s what happens to thousands of people every year. If your Uber driver speeds to your destination because they want to maximize the number of rides they provide during their shift, or they drive poorly in stormy weather, or their tires are bald, you and your family could suffer life-changing injuries. 

When the first pedestrian was killed by an Uber driver in 2014, Uber denied liability, claiming the driver was not their employee. Now, Uber provides third-party liability insurance for their at-fault drivers. If you or one of your family members were injured in an Uber accident, call The Ruth Law Team to get the economic justice you deserve. We help people all around the country get fair compensation from Uber. Uber earned more than 25 billion dollars in revenue in 2021. Don’t accept less than you deserve.

Keep in mind, not all Uber accidents are caused by Uber drivers themselves. We also represent Uber drivers who were hurt by other negligent drivers. Whether you drive for Uber and did nothing wrong or were a passenger in an Uber, contact The Ruth Law Team if you’ve been injured.

Common Causes of Uber Accidents

Uber drivers often work long hours to earn enough money to make a living. That means too many Uber drivers are behind the wheel for far too long to remain alert and responsive to sudden dangers. And since all Uber vehicles are owned by the drivers personally, the state of their road fitness is anybody’s guess. 

Some of the most common causes of Uber accidents include:
