Litigation against Uber and Lyft (Class Action Lawsuit)

I heard today a radio advertisement detailing a class action suit. I phoned 800-214-9179 and the person who answered provided me the website kellerlenkner.com. Apparently, currently active Uber and Lyft drivers nationwide are entitled to some funds with a settlement reached by both. I no longer drive for either so I don't qualify. I would like to share this (hopefully useful info and get some feedback).

One of the great things about the Internet is that it eliminated the necessity for marginally-skilled lawyers to chase ambulances. Now they can just get an 800 number and a website, and somebody will bite.

They did recently settle on one of The Upfront pricing class actions I believe. The problem with these lawsuits is, the number one qualification is you had to opt out of arbitration. So there's only 4500-4600 drivers Nationwide that did so and are able to participate.

I joined in one of the very first class actions against Uber, been so long ago I forgot.
I got a check about two weeks ago ... for $3.72
not even enough for a six pack.

The lawyers get rich. Not the plaintiffs.

I think this last settlement they said was equivalent to everyone getting $75 but wait for it... That's BEFORE the lawyers get their cut:rolleyes:

I do not believe it matters that you are not currently driving. Class action is defending many. You have to be one of the many and listed on the court paperwork. It usually covers a time frame. You have to explore the attorneys website to get any information. I would call and talk to someone in the office and see if you qualify to be added to the list of drivers in the law suit.

I was involved in one - got $2,664.00 Attorneys took 40%, plus filing fees. I got $1,487.00 Not a bad days work for just putting my name on a piece of paper.
It is worth getting involved.

Some of them you're automatically added. You actually have to opt out if you don't want to participate. Some of them you do have to opt-in. I believe the ones you are automatically added to, you don't hear anything necessarily but the ones you have to opt into, both Uber and the attorneys or. courts have to contact you

Please see the attached check I received from the settlement. it speaks for itself...
You can sign up but the most you'll end up with $20, or something like that. The lawyers get the bulk, then they divide whats left of the "settlement" amongst the class, leaving you with little.
You are absolutely correct. please see the attached check I received from this settlement...

If the lawyers made a lot of money, the defendant paid a lot of money.

I’m not sure how the money is awarded but I bet more plaintiffs also equals a higher fine.
No - it equals higher fees for the lawyers.
They get a commission -- just like a car salesman.
The more they screw the customer (um, client) the more money they get.
