TKK Fights for Passengers Victimized by Lyft and Uber Drivers

News reports of people being sexually assaulted or robbed by drivers vetted by Uber and Lyft are becoming more and more common. Passengers who have been injured in incidents or crashes involving ride-share drivers invariably face the argument that drivers are independent contractors rather than employees as Uber and Lyft try to avoid liability. These highly profitable companies take a “we’ll take the profits, but not the responsibility” approach to these cases, but they should be held accountable for their inadequate driver screening processes that fail to keep their customers safe.

Please visit our Uber, Lyft and Ride-Share Injuries page for more information about how Uber and Lyft fail to properly vet their drivers, as well as some links to recent news stories about assaults and robberies by ride-share drivers.
