Like it or loathe it, ridesharing services are apparently here to stay, with Uber, Lyft and similar services seeing their popularity rocket during the few years they have been in existence. Offering an affordable, convenient mode of transport across Bountiful, an Uber can be a welcome alternative to hailing a traditional taxi cab. With Uber, there is no need to find a designated location with available cabs, nor to have the available cash to hand. Instead, thanks to the power of modern technology, you can now simply enter a few details into a smartphone app, track your car and driver, and pay automatically via the card you pre-registered while setting up the app. It really could not be more convenient and, let’s be honest, convenience is swiftly becoming king of the gig economy.
When you choose to either drive or become a passenger in a vehicle, you will be aware that there is a small risk of becoming involved in an accident at some point during your journey, and that is no different when the car you are entering is operating as an Uber. The drivers working to enable the ridesharing services to operate are just as likely to cause, or be caught up in, a collision as anyone else on the roads.
If you have been injured in an accident, you should speak to a Bountiful Uber accident attorney as soon as possible to ensure your legal rights are protected.
