Client was in an Uber in April 2019, and when she opened the door to step out of the vehicle, she heard someone yell and quickly closed the door. A biker coming towards the Uber ran into the parked vehicle next to them and sustained severe injuries. The biker initially sued the uber driver, but the driver joined client as a co-defendant, and client was served in December 2019. Client received an extension of time to answer the complaint from counsel for both the biker and the Uber driver. She also signed an affidavit of no insurance provided by plaintiff’s counsel. A deposition was scheduled for Friday, March 20, 2020, but the client has not received anything in the mail and plaintiff’s counsel has stated it will be postponed. An arbitration hearing has been set for May 27, 2020, at 10:45 am. An attorney is needed to draft an answer to the complaint, monitor client’s involvement in the case while the two other parties negotiate, and ensure client is ultimately dismissed from the case.
