Clifford Law Offices, a nationally renowned personal injury firm, today (Oct. 26, 2015) filed a lawsuit against Uber and an Uber driver for injuries to a passenger when the driver turned into oncoming traffic at the busy Ohio Street intersection that merges off the Kennedy Expressway.
Yates M. French, a Chicago attorney, was injured as a passenger in the back seat of an Uber car on Oct. 14, 2015, that turned westbound from Wells Street onto the one-way eastbound Ohio Street.
The driver, George C. Lekkas, owner of a 2012 Honda sedan, was named a defendant in the action as well as Uber Technologies, Inc. He crashed his vehicle into another and both cars sustained severe damage. French is under the care of a physician.

Clifford, founder and senior partner at the firm, has been very outspoken to the state legislature, the Chicago City Council and the media about insurance deficiencies regarding Uber and Uber drivers. He has called for greater regulation and oversight of this ride-sharing business.
