It is now commonplace to see Uber vehicles everywhere on the roadway, offering convenient and relatively inexpensive rides for residents of Toledo. However, what happens if you or someone you care about is injured in an accident involving an Uber vehicle? At Paulozzi LPA, our team has vast experience handling car accident cases, and we are familiar with the complexities of insurance issues surrounding rideshare accidents. Let our Toledo Uber accident attorneys get to work securing the compensation you deserve.
If it seems like you have not heard about many Uber accidents occurring, that is because Uber does not like to advertise when their vehicles are involved in a crash. However, according to the Ohio Highway Safety Office, there were more than 300,000 total traffic accidents reported across this state in the latest data year available. It would be naive to think that these incidents, which caused more than 100,000 injuries and more than 1,100 fatalities, did not involve any rideshare vehicles. Uber drivers are just like anybody else on the roadway – they have no additional driver safety training, and they are using their personal vehicles.
Uber is a large company that generates plenty of revenue, but that means nothing in the event an accident occurs. Just like every other car accident, incidents involving Uber vehicles can become an insurance nightmare for injured victims. When an Uber accident occurs, insurance coverage depends on what the rideshare driver is doing at the time of the incident.
These cases will still require extensive investigations by a car accident attorney. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with, and they do not want to hand over large settlements. Your attorney will be responsible for thoroughly investigating what happened and handling negotiations with every party involved.
