Uber Lyft Sexual Assault Attorney


Uber Lyft sexual assault Anytime you enter an Uber or a Lyft vehicle, you run the risk of potentially being harmed by the driver. The companies do not provide ample safety measures because the drivers operate their own vehicles on their own time, and the businesses try to hold a laissez-faire attitude. However, because you are using the apps to receive services, the companies are therefore responsible for any injuries you suffer, especially if they are at the hands of the drivers themselves. Many people use rideshare services to get home after going out drinking, and such individuals are prime targets for agresión sexual. If you are the victim of sexual assault, you should póngase en contacto con el Downtown LA Law Group for more assistance.

Troubles with Ride-sharing Services and Assault

One of the many problems that Uber and Lyft have is handling sexual assault and physical violence. The companies do conduct background checks on their drivers, but unfortunately, many of these background checks only investigate as far back as seven years. This means that anything that happened beforehand is not likely to be known to the employer. As a result, all sorts of unsavory individuals can be hired. Further, Uber and Lyft are generally not made aware of any wrongdoing the drivers commit while under employment; they could realistically get involved in something unrelated to driving and be arraigned, but still allowed to drive due to the lack of knowledge by the company. This means that both the driver and the company can be held responsible. For one, the driver who committed the action can be targeted in a claim, as he was directly involved in the incident. The negligent hiring by Uber or Lyft could also be blamed, however, and also targeted in a lawsuit. Thus, the Uber driver can be charged with sexual assault of the passenger, and the passenger can sue Uber/Lyft for sexual assault. In some instances, an Uber or Lyft passenger sexually assaults a driver, resulting in the reverse lawsuit. This can be deemed an unsafe workplace claim. No matter what, if you were harmed in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, we can help.

If you were assaulted, you should sue Uber or you should sue Lyft to ensure that the driver and the company are both held responsible for the damages. You can also opt to file criminal charges against the responsible individual, but such charges require a higher burden of proof and do not result in some of the same damages. Criminal charges can result in fines and jail time, while civil cases result in compensation and such.

Legal Information for Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is not a specific tort that can be filed. Instead, you must pursue an assault and battery claim that will target the responsible party. Assault and battery can encompass many actions, such as kidnapping and sexually assaulting the passenger, sexual harassment, rape, sexual abuse, and much more.

The difference between assault and battery is simple. Assault consists of any action that would warrant you feeling in danger of physical harm; in this way, sexual assault can even be something verbal or non-verbal. Assault does not need to have a physical action accompany it. Battery, on the other hand, requires some type of physical force or action, such as a strike, beating, groping, and more. If an Uber or Lyft driver sexually assaults a passenger, there could be various paths to take. If there were instances of touching and forced actions, you could sue for much more. In many cases, when a Lyft or Uber driver assaults a passenger, the passenger can sue Uber and Lyft for the assault because of the breach of care the company owed.

Uber/Lyft Sexual & Physical Attacks

Sexual assault by rideshare drivers is not uncommon, and sexual assault itself is prevalent all over. You must give consent if you wish to be touched, and without consent, anyone touching you or behaving inappropriately can be targeted for harassment or assault. Examples of sexual and physical attacks include:

  • Touching
  • A tientas
  • Acariciando
  • Forced sexual action
  • Violación
  • Abusos sexuales
  • Sexual misconduct (revealing)
  • Highly suggestive or inappropriate remarks
  • Kissing

In many cases, these actions take place in the Uber or Lyft vehicles. However, there are times when the driver may try to help you to the door of your home. This is most common with victims who have been drinking or who are intoxicated. You should be completely aware that merely because you are intoxicated, it does not give the driver the right to violate your consent, nor does it mean you are in your right mind and can properly give consent in the first place. If you feel that your Uber driver raped you or your Lyft driver assaulted you, you should seek out a Lyft and Uber driver assault and battery lawyer.

Restitution from a Sexual Assault Lawsuit against an Uber or Lyft Driver

If an Uber or Lyft driver touched you without your consent, groped you, touched you inappropriately, assaulted you, or raped you, you can take legal action against the individual and the company for damages stemming from the incident. You should not be expected to cover the resulting expenses if you were a victim of sexual assault by an Uber or Lyft driver. A lawsuit filed by an Uber passenger or Lyft passenger for sexual assault can result in the following forms of compensation:

  • Medical expenses (surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication, and future medical treatments)
  • Lost wages from missed days at work from the past and future
  • Property damage for any personal items that were lost, broken, or damaged in the incident
  • Pain and suffering damages (PTSD, anxiety, fear, depression, mental scarring, psychological trauma)
  • Punitive damages (additional amounts of monetary compensation meant to punish the defendant and dissuade him from behaving in a similar manner in the future; however, these damages are often viewed as excessive, so only a skilled lawyer will be able to win them for your case)

Si usted fue dañado en un incidente de viaje compartido, necesitará la asistencia de un abogado con experiencia en Demandas por acoso sexual a conductores y pasajeros de Uber.

Prescripción de la acción por agresión sexual

Si tienes intención de demandar a Lyft o demandar a Uber por agresión sexual por parte de un conductor, debes ser consciente de cuánto tiempo tienes para emprender acciones legales contra el conductor o la empresa. En California, sólo tiene 2 años a partir de la fecha de la lesión o incidente para presentar una demanda por lesiones personales basada en negligencia o asalto y agresión. Este límite de dos años fomenta que las reclamaciones se presenten rápidamente y que todas las pruebas pertinentes se presenten a tiempo. Hay ocasiones en las que este plazo de prescripción puede quedar en suspenso. Usted puede ser elegible para una excepción si era menor de edad en el momento del incidente, en cuyo caso se le aplicaría el límite de dos años cuando cumpla 18 años. Además, el acusado puede haber abandonado el estado o el país durante un cierto período de tiempo, lo que haría que el estatuto se suspendiera hasta su regreso. Si no está seguro de cuánto tiempo le queda para presentar una demanda, póngase en contacto con nuestros abogados de Los Ángeles para Casos de agresión sexual en Uber y Lyft. Le ayudaremos a determinar el tiempo restante de su reclamación y, si lo desea, nos aseguraremos de que todos sus documentos y expedientes necesarios se presenten a tiempo.
