High Usage of Ubers Have Been Linked to Increases in the Number of Fatal Car Accidents
While Uber is often touted as a great way to keep the streets safer by keeping drunk drivers and drowsy drivers off the road, one study came to a different conclusion. The study, which was a joint effort between Rice University and the University of Chicago, found that rideshare services correlated with a 2-3% increase in fatal car accidents throughout the United States.
They pointed to other issues with rideshare vehicles, including the fact that people who drive for these companies spend more time in their cars, which then leads to more congestion on the roads – and higher chances for accidents.
Know This: Uber’s Insurance Adjusters Are Not on Your Side
The good news is that every Uber driver is insured through James River Insurance Company for $1 million of liability. This may allow you to seek higher compensation for your damages than you would in a typical car accident. However, it also means you are going up against a company worth billions of dollars an entire army of attorneys at their disposal.
It is important to remember that Uber is not on your side. Their insurance company is not on your side. Their goals are the same: To reduce claims as much as possible. You need an Uber attorney who has the same goals as you and who will be on your side. You need Greg Jackson Law.
