People rarely expect to get into accidents in a ride-sharing vehicle. When
Los Angeles residents call an Uber to get to or from a party on the weekend,
they’re doing so in part to relax. Having someone else navigate
the traffic of Los Angeles highways takes a load of pressure off of the

the family argued the company can’t detach itself from its own users
whenever the drivers become inconvenient.
