A Texas woman is suing the popular ridesharing company, Uber, after an auto crash that left her paralyzed, according to court documents. The 24-year-old Dallas woman was paralyzed in November 2015, after her Uber driver ran a red light and struck with another vehicle, according to the lawsuit. The woman is now paralyzed from the chest down.
According to the lawsuit, the Uber driver had a criminal history, and he did not own the Honda vehicle he was driving, nor was he uninsured. The lawsuit also details that the actual owner of the Honda had a criminal record. The victim and her family say Uber was negligent and millions of people trust Uber to safely provide rides. The victim is paralyzed for the rest of her life and will need to depend on others for care. Uber has not commented on the lawsuit.
