Uber Establishes Global Security Board

By Robert Kahn on December 23, 2015 - Comments off

Uber AccidentRidesharing giant Uber has unveiled an advisory board to oversee security concerns within the company’s day-to-day operations. This comes after a rough year, with widespread reports of sexual misconduct, assaults, and a variety of other crimes being committed by Uber drivers.

The six-member board will be implementing strategies in 2016 that will address both new and old issues. The Global Safety and Security Board consists of high profile individuals such as Boston’s former Police Commissioner and the vice president of the National Network to End Domestic Violence.

Whether this new move will improve Uber’s bruised security profile remains to be seen. Over the past year, a number serious and disconcerting allegations have called into question Uber’s ability to protect its customers. In July, Uber settled out of court with a family that lost their 6-year old daughter to a negligent Uber driver. There have been many reports of women allegedly sexually abused by drivers. These are difficult challenges that Uber will have to overcome if they wish to remain a global leader in ridesharing technology.

But, remember – despite Uber’s claim it they are not responsible for your safety once you enter the car, you have legal options if you are involved in an accident. Contact the personal injury attorneys at Kahn Roven, LLP for more information today.
