Uber Ordered to Pay $1.1 Million to Blind Woman Who Was Denied Rides

On Thursday, Lisa Irving, who is blind and uses a guide dog, was awarded $1.1 million by Uber after an attribution case that claimed Uber violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.

According to Forbes, Irving “was harassed or denied rides on 14 occasions in 2016 and 2017, which caused her to be late for work on two occasions and lose her job.” This is not the first time Uber has been under fire for failing to accommodate disabled people.

A current lawsuit from an Uber user in New Orleans also claims that the rideshare company is violating the ADA by not having accessible rideshare options in their city.
