CAUSES OF UBER ACCIDENTS
In an urban area such as Chicago, Uber drivers are often fighting for passengers, especially in busy areas such as Wrigley Field, Steppenwolf Theatre, the Chicago Museum of Art and other areas where traffic could be heavy. Dense traffic and lots of pedestrians and hazards can make driving dangerous if a driver fails to stay focused or is tired.
UberXL drivers usually use a dashboard-mounted phone with an app that shows those drivers where potential passengers are located, sometimes with a ping or also with a pop-up alert that announces that a potential fare is nearby.
Both methods of messaging can be distracting, and drivers could create an unsafe driving situation if they use the app while on the road in order to reach the fare before another driver.
In the event of an injury, having the right Chicago Uber accident lawyer – one with experience in handling ride-sharing cases and a deep understanding of the laws governing insurance regulations – will help determine whether Uber’s insurance or your driver’s insurance (which usually rejects claims if a car is being used for work) will be held responsible for covering your claim.
A good Chicago Uber accident lawyer will also help ensure that you secure a fair settlement that will cover any and all expenses related to your injuries.

Working with David was a pleasure. From the first time I spoke to him I felt at ease with him as he seemed more concerned with my well-being before all. He was always keeping me updated on everything every step through the process and was always available for me if I had a question. David delivered more than expected for me in every way and I would recommend him to anyone. A real class act with your best interest at heart!
Best in Chicago; Dave is connected in the area to several doctors/practices and will assist in making sure everything goes as smooth and professional as possible. Great experience and will keep recommending to those in need of a personal injury lawyer!
I couldn’t have asked for a better injury lawyer. David Schwaner was wonderful to work with. He’s straightforward and gets the job done, all the while being most compassionate. I wish I could choose 6s. I’d recommend Schwaner Injury Law above all.
David help our family out he took time out to explain everything and was so caring the car accident was do bad that David cried because my son was shot at 30 times and had a bad injury that needed surgery david work night and day because we did not have the best insurance company
If you want a lawyer with compassion, a conscience, and a strong base of knowledge and experience, David’s your guy. I found myself seriously injured while traveling alone. He treated me with respect, patience, and genuine honesty even when I couldn’t really advocate for myself or think straight due to medications (this is where his patience came in). While it turned out that there wasn’t much any attorney could have done for me, he certainly exhausted every option, and I have no doubt he would have fought well for me had a trial occurred. The only drawback to having hired Mr. Schwaner is that I can no longer tell all those awful lawyer jokes. He ruined them all for me. But that’s a price I’m happy to have paid.
I was recommended to Schwaner by another yelper. I Visited this office recently, located in the garner building. They are time efficient people here, things are organized and done when they give you their word to be. After my meeting I must say that the staff is very helpful and David is extremely supportive of his clients. He was ready to answer all questions and commit to necessary steps to help solve the situation immediately. He is one of the best out here!
I am truely grateful to David who dealt with the insurance companies on our behalf. We had our own injury to handle and luckily we were able to come in contact with David. He gave us assurance that he would take care of everything. He was very adamant on keeping us informed of the status of the case throughout the process. I hope that I never have to deal with a situation like this again in the future, but if I do I know I can trust David to relieve our worries and be there for us.
