St. Louis Uber Dangers
In the last 10 years, rideshare companies like Uber have radically changed the transportation industry as we know it. However, with innovation comes significant problems and controversies. Uber is convenient and affordable, but what are the drawbacks? What if you are in a car accident while riding in an Uber? What if you are sexually or physically assaulted by a driver or another passenger? What do you do if you are discriminated against? If any of these scenarios are something you have experienced, contact an Uber accident attorney St. Louis today.
St. Louis has a variety of transportation options in both the public and private sectors that can take you to your desired destination. Between the MetroLink, private taxis, limousine services, personal vehicles, biking, walking, renting a scooter, or using a rideshare app like Uber, there are plenty of ways to get around the city. Uber has become a clear favorite transportation option as many residents, including students at Washington University and St. Louis University opt to request an Uber from an app on their phone rather than use their personal vehicle or navigate public transportation. While requesting an Uber is simple, there are many risks involved. These risks include:
- Accidents with other vehicles, pedestrians, or property
- Sexual misconduct and assault
- Discrimination, harassment, and mistreatment
