What’s the Problem?
August 29, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff Katherine Vesce was knocked unconscious in the accident, which caused her to sustain a “serious knee injury.” She was on her way to the New York City Marathon, but was hurt so badly she’ll likely never be able to compete again, the complaint states.
Vesce is suing Uber for negligence, fraud, and other allegations, and hers is the latest in a slew of similar lawsuits to be filed against Uber in recent months.
Many of the complaints make related claims that Uber’s safety and training procedures are inadequate, which can result in accidents caused by unsafe drivers.
Vesce’s lawsuit was filed the day after former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick was sued by Benchmark Capital Partners over a dispute concerning the company’s board of directors.
Uber is also facing what could prove to be a very costly lawsuit filed by Waymo, Alphabet’s self-driving car subsidiary, alleging theft of trade secrets.
