Uber took offline claiming my car is salvaged or rebuilt which is a out right lie and I can prove it. I gave them valid documents and they still refuse for me to drive. I only had 72000 miles on the car when I got it one owner with a clean title does anyone know what I can do?

That's like trying to sue a club for not letting you in, or suing a web site for banning you for whatever reason they like. Uber is a technology company, as they like to stress. They created an app, and that app is the business. You're going to sue them because they won't let you use their app? Good luck.

If it where just an app you wouldn't have to sign independent contract agreement with them

And they can release you as an IC at any time, particularly if they feel your equipment does not meet the standard.

Do you have the actual title that you can scan and show them that its a clean title?

There is a loophole in the licensing laws of a few states whereby someone can take a salvaged/rebuilt vehicle from another state, and get it titled in the state with a clean title - a process known as "title washing".

While the probability is that Uber fouled up and took you offline by mistake, it is possible that they may be right and you unknowingly have a salvage vehicle.

All of these things are true. I have called every labor, personal injury, and insurance lawyer within 100 miles and have only gotten chirping crickets.

Your car might be rebuilt and title washed. Do some research. As someone who buys and sells a fair amount of cars, its not uncommon. I have bought 2 cars in the past 5 transactions that had this happen to them before i got them. Both were from craigslist, but one was an actual used car dealership that seemed legit. There is some gold on there, but you have to dig it out of the shit.

Where did you get your car

I will go against the grain and express some sympathy to the OP's plight, but I won't go against it in regards to finding a lawyer. I'm afraid you can find an attorney for whatever you want if you can pay their hourly rate, but if you want them to work for a cut of the take, there won't be one willing to do this for you as there is nothing in it for them.

Do you have a bill of sale that states it has a clean title? If you do, and it is salvaged, you will win in court. Most states have laws about disclosing a salvaged vehicle and no finance company will touch a salvage.

uuuhh... what?? I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you think you mean. They have NO obligation to allow you to drive for them. They can stop you from using their app anytime they want for any reason. They even have more freedom than an at will termination. Yes, they are a technology company. Do you not see how many lawsuits they have been involved in using this reason? In most states that went up against them, they prevailed. Overtime hours? Tech company that just has an app. Medical insurance? Just a tech company with an app. Mandatory minimum wage? Tech company with an app you simply downloaded and choose to use. I think you need to read the fine print of what you signed up for. It's long, and for a reason. They've lost a few rulings in places (and countries), but your argument is truly an uphill battle.

This. This is the answer. Or you could try just a bit harder and get a better job. I have a job, and UBER is my second income to make ends meet in a messed up economy in a high priced city and a father of a teenager. I could not survive on this alone. PLUS I'm semi retired with a modest pension.
