Uber is perhaps the most prominent player in the new ridesharing industry that is turning out to be a nightmare for the traditional taxi industry. Ridesharing can turn out to be a nightmare for passengers and other motorists as well if an accident occurs involving an Uber driver. Uber accidents can get complex because of the multiple insurance issues that can come into play. It is important to discuss your case with a law firm that has experienced Charlotte Uber Accident Lawyers.
Uber accidents can involve various claimants, including:
- An Uber driver who was injured by the negligence of another motorist
- An Uber passenger who was injured by the negligence of the Uber driver or another motorist
- A passenger in the vehicle of a non-Uber driver who was injured by the negligence of an Uber driver
- A pedestrian who was injured by the negligence of an Uber driver
