So i came across some information that might be useful. In the state of Florida, there is an attorney handling Uber driver claims. They currently have 3 clients all claiming injuries while driving for uber. They filed claims under florida worker's compensation laws. Now as you all know, they are Independent contracters and aren't entiltled to worker's compensation. That being said, it appears that Uber is trying to avoid further litigation as they are set for mediation next month. Which is to say, they are willing to settle. Food for thought.
