One of the recent phenomenon taking popular cities by storm is food-delivery services. In the past, food delivery was only an option if a restaurant offered delivery. Now, food-delivery companies create partnerships with restaurants of different categories to provide delivery for hungry customers in the area. Uber Eats is one of these food delivery services that many people count on. Uber Eats delivery drivers pick up meals at designated restaurant locations and drop meals off at varying customer locations.

Although being a driver for a food-delivery service seems like a simple task, the task comes with risks—especially the risk of being involved in a car accident. Whenever you enter a vehicle and start driving, you run the risk of becoming the victim of a car accident. It does not matter if you are driving for personal or work reasons; you could suffer a car accident at any moment. Some people believe that they can avoid car accidents by driving safely; however, even safe-drivers can be involved in car accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers.

What if you are involved in a car accident with an Uber Eats driver? What can you do if an Uber Eats driver causes an accident in which you sustained injuries? What should you do if you are an Uber Eats driver that was involved in a car accident? Since Uber Eats is a relatively new service—started in the summer of 2014—many people are unfamiliar with their rights after being involved in an Uber Eats auto accident. Because of that, the majority of people do not know how to handle their accidents involving Uber Eats.

If you were recently involved an Uber Eats car accident, you might need to speak with an Uber Eats accident lawyer to discuss the possibility of filing an auto accident claim against Uber Eats. You must seek legal assistance from delivery driver accident attorneys in Los Angeles as soon as possible.

Why Do Uber Eats Accidents Occur?

Like all other types of auto accidents, Uber Eats accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons that lead to car accidents includes reckless, negligent, or distracted drivers. These drivers are likely to drive over the speed limit, fail to follow traffic laws, and put other drivers in danger. Accidents can also be caused by vehicles that suddenly become disabled due to mechanical issues and stall in unsafe areas. For example, a vehicle that suddenly loses power while traveling at normal speeds could quickly cause an unexpected accident due to a sudden stop. A stalled vehicle can be a hazard to other drivers, which leads to another common cause of car accidents. Many accidents are caused in attempts to avoid hazards or colliding with other vehicles. Whatever the cause of the accident, those involved are likely to suffer a series of injuries ranging in severity. Unfortunately, many car accidents are fatal.

The Injuries Commonly Sustained during Uber Eats Accidents

According to statistics for fatal accidents nationwide, more than 30,000 fatal crashes resulted in over 32,000 deaths; in other words, the majority of fatal accidents result in only one death (1.08 to be exact). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for every single fatality due to a vehicle accident, eight people were hospitalized due to their injuries, and one-hundred people were treated by emergency services and later released. Based on this information, many people suffer injuries as a result of auto accidents, including Uber Eats accidents. What are the most common injuries that you could suffer if you were involved in an Uber Eats accident? Although each accident is different, the parties involved in Uber Eats accidents could suffer some of the following injuries:

  • Back and neck injury
  • Concussion
  • Ear injuries that cause hearing damage or tinnitus
  • Facial injuries
  • Fractures
  • Hand & wrist injury
  • Hip, knee, and shoulder injuries
  • Knee & ankle injury
  • Lacerations
  • Nerve damage
  • Scrapes and bruises
  • Severed limbs
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Sprains, strains, and tears
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Whiplash

Without a doubt, all parties involved in Uber Eats accidents and any other vehicular accidents could suffer physical injuries. However, it is also common for the parties involved in car accidents to experience many mental and emotional issues in the aftermath of auto accidents. Besides the physical injuries listed above, victims of auto accidents could suffer from anxiety, depression, fear, embarrassment, and post-traumatic stress disorder after an auto accident, for example. If you were involved in an auto accident as an Uber Eats driver or with an Uber Eats driver, you could have suffered physical, mental, and emotional injuries. If so, you might have grounds to take legal action after your accident.
