Rawson, McKay & Elkind Obtain Dismissal for Rideshare Company and its Parent Entity
Hartline Barger attorneys successfully obtained a dismissal for their client.
In this case, Plaintiff Lura Puryear was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a man working as an independent contractor for a rideshare company. The vehicle was involved in an accident, and Plaintiff sued the driver, the rideshare company, its parent entity, and another driver involved in the accident. The rideshare company and its parent moved for traditional and no-evidence summary judgment, arguing, among other things, no negligence by either entity and no control by either entity over the driver. Rather than address the motions, Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed her claims against the two companies. Representing the companies were Brian Rawson, Roy McKay, and Stephen Elkind.
