    What You Need to Know About Uber Intersection Accidents

    Published on Sep 27, 2021 at 10:16 pm in Uber Accidents.

    Intersections are where main roads cross paths or intersect, and accidents are very common in these parts of the roadways. When a driver fails to pay close attention to the road, does not follow the traffic control devices, or is otherwise reckless or careless when driving, serious injuries could occur. Unfortunately, in some cases, intersection accidents could be deadly. Intersection accidents can also involve Uber or other rideshare vehicles. 

    If you were riding in an Uber or another vehicle that collided with an Uber, you should discuss your best options with an accident attorney right away. 

    Uber Accidents That Commonly Occur at Intersections

    A variety of Uber accidents could take place in intersections, whether in uncontrolled intersections or intersections with traffic control devices. These accidents are: 

    • Rear-End Crashes
    • T-Bone Accidents
    • Rollover Accidents
    • Head-On Collisions
    • Side-Impact Crashes
    • Left-Turn or Right-Turn Collisions

    Because there are so many rideshare vehicles on the road these days, the chances are good that an Uber might be involved in one of the above types of collisions. 

    Common Causes of Intersection Accidents

    Identifying which party was liable for an intersection accident could sometimes be difficult. For example, if the road or traffic signs are vague or motorists don’t know how right-of-way rules work, all motorists involved in an intersection accident could think that the other party caused the crash. But while each intersection accident is different, they usually result from the following: 

    • Distracted driving 
    • Unsafe lane changes
    • Failure to yield
    • Reckless driving
    • Speeding
    • Driver fatigue 
    • Driving while intoxicated
    • Improper turns 
    • Running stop signs or red lights
    • Tailgating
    • Adverse weather conditions
    • Poorly maintained roadways

    A skilled lawyer can help you investigate your accident to identify what really caused it and gather relevant evidence to establish who was at fault. The legal process will differ depending on whether an Uber driver or another driver was to blame. 

    Injuries Stemming From Intersection Uber Accidents

    Some types of Uber accidents that occur in intersections have an elevated risk of causing devastating or potentially fatal injuries. Depending on the type of accident and severity of the crash, injured victims may suffer the following injuries: 

    • Whiplash
    • Multiple bone fractures
    • Soft-tissue injuries
    • Nerve damage
    • Head and neck injuries
    • Internal organ damage
    • Lacerations
    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Paralysis
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Burn injuries

    If a loved one was killed in an intersection Uber accident, recovering financial compensation for you and your loved one’s damages is possible through a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party.
