Rideshares And Assault: What To Know

Incidents of sexual assault involving rideshares are becoming more prevalent. There are thousands of lawsuits that have been filed against rideshare companies in which passengers were either harassed or sexually assaulted. The victims were sometimes too intoxicated to consent or, in some instances, asleep. While a criminal case is one way to bring the perpetrator to justice, you can also file a civil injury lawsuit. Civil lawsuits empower you to present the evidence in your case before a judge or jury and seek compensation for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering and post-traumatic stress disorder. A lawsuit is also an excellent tool to prevent the abuser from harming other people in the future.

Experience With Complex Liability Issues

Cases involving rideshares are complicated because they often involve more than one source of liability. For example, we might file a lawsuit against the driver of the car for directly causing your injury and the rideshare company for failing to keep you safe. We have handled thousands of car accident cases involving complex issues of third-party liability. We will explore every available source of liability to hold the negligent parties accountable and put compensation in your hands.
