What can I do if I was in an Uber accident?

In today’s time, services like Uber and Lyft are growing in popularity. Uber and Lyft provide people with the opportunity to go on their phones into an application to get access to a car ride. Instead of making a phone call, it is only a few finger clicks away. This makes it even more convenient for people to arrange their transportation. Drivers of Uber and Lyft can make their own working schedule in order to best fit their time. They can see many passengers a day and transport them to locations all over depending on their preference. Although these tools are efficient for car rides, they can still be involved in motor vehicle accidents. With Uber and Lyft, individuals are passengers instead of the driver in charge. This can become difficult when they are involved in an accident because victims will want to seek liability. If you or a loved one has been involved in passenger accident, you should seek legal counsel immediately to ensure you are taking the proper steps.

In the state of Delaware, there is a principle of contributory negligence that accidents are categorized by. There may be multiple parties that are liable for the cause of a motor vehicle accident. Car accidents can occur due to a variety of reasons. These can include driver negligence, hazardous road conditions and defective car parts. Finding who is at fault when you are a passenger is essential.
