In February of this year, an article by one of our Partners, Ram Fletcher was published in Trial, a magazine of the American Association of Justice (AAJ). AAJ is the leading national plaintiff’s lawyer organization. Entitled, Same Roads, New Rules, the article addresses the unique challenges facing people injured in auto cases involving rideshare services like Uber and Lyft.
Trial “is a magazine for attorneys, law professors, judges and others in the legal community. Trial brings readers news of the latest legal trends and developments, informative articles about civil law practice, coverage of recent verdicts and settlements in a wide range of practice areas, and commentary and analysis on emerging legal issues.”
The article, which is geared towards those working in the legal profession, discusses the ever-increasing number of legal issues around Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing businesses. Who is liable for damages? How do you evaluate a case? What do the Terms of Service require?
