Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have changed the transportation industry in significant ways, but many of their customers have been victims of sexual assaults committed by the rideshare companies’ drivers.

Assaults Committed by Rideshare Drivers

There have been multiple harrowing claims of Uber and Lyft driver sexual assault over the years. For the years 2017 and 2018, Uber reported 5,981 sexual assault allegations from across the country. For 2019 and 2020, Uber reported 3,824 allegations of sexual assault. And for the years 2017, 2018, and 2019, Lyft reported 4,158 assault allegations. Several of the survivors of alleged Uber and Lyft sexual assault cases have filed lawsuits to hold the rideshare businesses accountable for their experiences.

What is Assault?

Sexual assault can come in many disturbing forms, including the following:

  • Touching without permission 
  • Forced sexual activity 
  • Exposure of intimate body parts 
  • Sexual activity without consent

Any survivor who believes they have been subjected to sexual misconduct by a rideshare driver should consult with an attorney right away to help make sure they receive all relief that they deserve. A Lyft or Uber sexual assault attorney can let you know your legal options for seeking compensation for the harm you have endured.

Damages Available in a Sexual Assault Lawsuit

Survivors who file civil lawsuits against Uber, Lyft and their drivers have access to many legal remedies to help them deal with the effects of an assault. Remedies in a civil sexual assault case can include the following:

  • Compensation for the survivor’s pain and suffering (including emotional distress, changes in quality of life, physical pain and disfigurement).
  • Payment for the survivor’s financial losses (including medical costs, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses and diminished earning capacity).
  • Punitive damages to punish a party for engaging in particularly abhorrent behavior.
  • Injunctive relief to protect the survivor from further harm (including restraining and protection orders).

Often, proving entitlement to these damages requires large amounts of evidence that can be challenging, stressful or traumatizing for a survivor to collect. At Flint Cooper, our knowledgeable and skilled attorneys can handle difficult legal work for survivors while they take the time they need to process and heal. We can also maximize a survivor’s damages so that they have the best chance of receiving everything they deserve.
