On May 23, 2017, an Uber driver accepted a ride request from two young students. As the Uber driver approached the intersection of 53rd and Woodlawn, in Chicago, IL, he failed to recognize a red light in his direction of travel. The Uber driver ran the red light and T-boned a vehicle with the right of way. The students were thrown wildly in the car.
As a result of the impact, the Uber passengers sustained severe injuries. Both passengers retained LegalRideshare to recover the costs of medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of normal life.
