Two women plan to file lawsuits this week against Uber, claiming their drivers terrorized them — and that the company tried to cover it up.
One woman claims that a driver taking her to the Upper East Side instead diverted to the Bronx against her will, and she finally had to jump out at a light.
She says that when she called Uber, she was offered a $20 credit and told that the driver would no longer work for the company.
In the second case, a woman claims she found herself in the back of a car with a delirious driver who turned directly into oncoming traffic at least twice and admitted having driven many hours without sleep.
She says she called the company to complain but the trip data had been wiped out, leaving her with no record of the ride and no way to report the driver to the Taxi & Limousine Commission.
The suits will contend that the company is not properly training its drivers and is making them work long hours, says the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Brad Gerstman, who is also a lobbyist for the yellow-taxi industry.
Gerstman said he plans to file the suits Thursday to coincide with a TLC hearing into fatigued driving, which calls for Uber to turn over more trip data.
Uber insists it did not delete any information in the case.
