As Uber often stresses the safety of its cars and drivers, the ride-hailing company faces what could be a serious PR crisis: A Boston man who was left paralyzed by a car accident is suing Uber and the driver for $63 million. The negligence lawsuit, which was filed in the Superior Court for Suffolk County and was first reported by the Boston Globe, alleges that Uber hired a driver with a poor history that in turn led to 31-year-old Will Good getting injured. On April 30th, 2021, Good was looking to go home to the Somerville suburb after working a shift at a Boston restaurant.
