Uber Technology was sued by a woman in the United States for failing to install turn signals on its shared electric scooter, causing her to raise her hand to signal the steering when using the company's scooter and fell to the ground and injured her in 2019.
The woman also sued the manufacturer of Uber's shared scooters because these scooters were designed to be used on city streets and require turn signals, but the company did not provide any devices or machinery that can safely indicate turning.
According to the indictment, this woman's accident on a street in San Francisco last year caused her hip joint dislocation and multiple fractures, which required several hours of surgery to repair.
Uber sold its Jump scooter business to Neutron Holdings Inc this spring. The company did not immediately comment on this news.
