BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A Brevard County cyclist who nearly lost her foot in a crash is now suing the driver and the ride-sharing service Uber.
The lawsuit claims the 83-year-old driver worked up to seven days a week and should not have been allowed to drive for the app.
The case centers on a crash that happened in March 2016.
While lawsuits after car accidents aren’t unusual, one of the questions raised by the case is whether the driver was actually working for Uber at the time.
Gayna Hansen, 46, said part of her foot had to be reattached after she was hit from behind while riding her bike on Barnes Boulevard. The crash made a dent in the hood of the car.
