Uber sued by car-share stab victim

Chicago resident Jennifer Camacho says another passenger slashed her face several times while using Uber Pool. The case against Uber and the alleged attacker claims the car-hailing firm was negligent and Ms Camacho is seeking more than $150,000 in damages. Uber has previously declined to comment, telling local media that the incident was "An altercation between two riders that didn't involve Uber". "The way Uber is promoting a safe riding experience, they should have solutions and remedies in place for when things go wrong," he told the BBC. "The difference between Uber and a city bus or train is that Uber is consciously deciding who is put in a car and who people are sharing a ride with." A spokeswoman told the BBC: "Whenever an incident is reported to Uber, we look into it to help ensure the safety of everyone who uses the Uber app."
