Uber/Lyft Sexual Assault

Seek justice with an Uber/Lyft sexual assault lawyer who understands your rights.

Ride-sharing: a convenient transport option tainted by safety risks. While most drivers are trustworthy, some pose dangers, leading to assaults on passengers. Sexual assaults are alarmingly common.

Uber’s 2017-2018 U.S. Safety Report revealed nearly 6,000 assault reports, including hundreds of rapes. Lyft’s Community Safety Report (Oct. 2021) documented 4,158 assault reports from 2017 to 2019, including several hundred rapes.

Assaults reported by these companies span five categories:

  • Non-consensual kissing of non-sexual body parts
  • Attempted rape
  • Non-consensual touching of sexual body parts
  • Non-consensual kissing of sexual body parts
  • Rape

These figures likely understate the issue, as more than 66% of sexual assaults go unreported (Department of Justice). Victims may pursue compensation through sexual assault lawsuits against Uber or Lyft.

Victims of sexual assault may suffer physical injuries, but often describe feeling immobilized or unable to resist during the attack, experiencing a state of shock or paralysis. The instinctual responses of fight, flight, or freeze are natural and valid reactions. It’s crucial to understand that a lack of explicit refusal does not imply consent under any circumstances.
