If you are a peer-to-peer driver who has entered into a contract with Uber Technologies, Inc., Rasier, LLC, Rasier-CA, LLC, and/or any of their subsidiaries and who has completed a trip using the Uber software application as a driver to generate leads for rides in California at any time from April 28, 2011 to March 27, 2018 you may be entitled to benefits from a proposed class action settlement.
What do I get from the settlement? A lawsuit was filed on behalf of people who have used Uber’s software application as a driver, called Abdo Ghazi v. Uber Technologies, Inc. et al. (Case No. CGC-15-545532). The parties have proposed a settlement of that lawsuit. Uber is now offering drivers in California access to occupational accident insurance. The cost of the occupational accident insurance is being covered through an increase in rider fares. The fares have been increased by $0.06 per mile as of September 28, 2017. If the settlement is approved, rider fares will not be reduced until at least September 28, 2020 unless ordered otherwise by the Court. The insurance provides coverage for medical expenses from injuries to class members while using the Uber software application as a driver. Class members can apply their portion of the increased fare to the insurance (which will cover the premium cost completely), or keep the fare if they do not want the insurance. In exchange for these items, class members give up their right to sue Uber for the same legal issues that were, or could have been raised in this lawsuit. The settlement does not affect class members’ rights to file a claim for workers’ compensation or individual claims for personal injuries.
