To arrange for quality service, Uber has administered a code of standards for a vehicle to adhere to before it can drive for the famous rideshare association. This set of regulations differs by state. These laws are set in place not only to keep the roads safe, but to ensure that Uber riders can rely on a certain level of professionalism and excellence.
If your rideshare driver somehow managed to surpass Uber’s requirements by owning a defective or damaged vehicle that contributed to the cause of your accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim for damages.
