In late December 2018, a lawsuit involving people who were injured after an Uber driver made them leave the car in a dangerous area was brought back by an appellate court in Illinois. They decided that the driver could have reasonably foreseen that the couple could have been injured by a speeding car.
The panel was made up of three judges. They decided that the Uber driver Farid Kessanti and other people involved acted negligently when the Uber passengers Sean Kramer and Jasmine Vega were left in a poorly lit area. The area also had bars and likely had people who weren’t sober, and the Uber driver could have seen that a car collision could possibly happen. The panel brought back this claim because of the context where the passengers were left.
