Uber Attorney for Unfair Fare Lawsuits and Information
Getting an Uber or Lyft fraud attorney may have gotten easier. The public record shows that Uber and Lyft used their influence to minimize payments for drivers for years. A spate of recent lawsuits show this. A recent judgment in North Carolina sided in favor of the driver, who Uber paid under $2 an hour. Another case is rocketing through the courts in California.
If you drove for Uber or Lyft and received unfair compensation, you have legal options. The 'gig economy' resulted in many drivers taking their time and vehicles for almost no pay. Uber took advantage of these workers. Furthermore, Uber refused to pay them as employees at all. They classified them as independent contractors. This enabled them to get out of normal payment.

What are Some Signs of Uber Underpayment?
The following are some of the signs that Uber underpaid their drivers:
- Making drivers sign up as independent contractors, not employees
- Issuing tax statements as 990 forms, not W-2s
- Not informing drivers of their legal rights
- Paying wages that are under minimum wage
- Not compensating for issues involving your car while on the clock
- Not covering common insurance or liability issues
If any of these seem familiar, you may have a case. These are just some of the means that Uber and Lyft used to defraud their drivers out of millions in back wages.
