If you were assaulted while in a rideshare, you need to take action immediately to protect your rights. First, make sure that you report the incident. Report the assault to local law enforcement by calling 9-1-1 and report the incident to the rideshare company. As soon as you are able, you should consult with a rideshare assault lawyer to determine your legal options.
It is important to seek medical attention for any injuries that you sustained as a result of the assault. Failure to seek medical attention could negatively impact your case and your recovery. Keep detailed records of everything related to the assault and provide them to your attorney. The more information you have, the stronger your case will be.
While it is believed that many assaults go unreported, Uber and other rideshare companies release information about the number of safety incident reports that they receive each year.
According to the most recent Uber Safety Report:
The fact remains that rideshares can be dangerous when proper safety protocols are not followed. When a rideshare company fails to do a background check on their drivers or fails to protect their riders from known harm, they must be held accountable.
The number of rideshare assault incidents continues to be high. Lawsuits have been filed across the country to help hold rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft legally responsible for their safety failures.
