Blitz Law Group wins monumental decision that denied Arbitration in case against ride share company.

What many do not know is that when you use a ride share company such as Uber or Lyft to procure a ride from the app on your phone and you then suffer injuries from a crash you have given up your right to litigation against the ride share company and have already agreed to mandatory arbitration. Once a user of the app checks the box agreeing to the updated terms of the app you have already agreed to forfeit your day in court and have consented to a mandatory arbitration. This issue has been litigated throughout the country and many courts, including the courts in New York have denied the injured parties right to proceed in court. We are proud that Blitz Law Group was able to successfully fight a ride share company’s argument that the case should automatically be arbitrated. In a monumental and precedent setting decision Justin Blitz of Blitz Law Group is one of the few law firms in the country that won this argument for our client when a judge in the Supreme Court of the State of New York denied the ride share companies motion to move our case for our tragically injured client to arbitration and has allowed our case to proceed through the court and will allow our client to pursue justice through litigation and not in an arbitration. We are very proud of this decision that has benefited many plaintiffs throughout our State and across the country.
