Uber is a huge ride sharing service company that connects private drivers with passengers. When you take an Uber car ride, your safety is in the hands of the drivers. Uber passengers are injured every year in traffic accidents.
Uber driven vehicles have different insurance and liability standards than taxis and private cars. Uber considers its drivers to be independent contractors- not employees. Therefore, if an accident occurs, passengers are encouraged to make a claim against with the driver of the vehicle – not Uber. This can become an area of contention. Uber may ask you to provide an official statement following an accident. It is important to note that you have no obligation to give this statement.
