Rideshare applications – including Uber, Lyft, Car2Go, and others – are becoming more of the norm for people who need either short-term or long-term transportation. The integration of rideshare apps with smartphones are designed to make transportation more convenient, but there are also some horrifying downsides to the technology.
A recent CNN investigative report revealed that hundreds of drivers working for Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare companies have been found to have sexually assaulted innocent passengers in recent years. Rather than getting the safe and reliable transportation they signed up for, passengers have suffered from major trauma and may feel helpless when it comes to pursuing justice.

How To Determine If You Have A Case
If you have been physically or sexually assaulted by an Uber or Lyft driver, it may be in your best interests to contact our office to request a confidential case review. We will walk you through the criteria for pursuing a claim and help you collect important evidence that may be used to support your case.
Criminal acts like physical or sexual assault should not go unpunished. Of course, the perpetrator of such a crime should be held accountable for their actions. If you are met with unwelcome sexual advances from your Uber or Lyft driver, or if your driver attacks you before, during, or after a ride, you may be eligible to pursue a claim against the company responsible for ensuring your safety.
Whether you were physically injured or simply subdued in your driver’s attempted sexual assault, you have suffered damages. Many victims express a feeling of catatonic shock during an assault of this nature, and the trauma can be long lasting. We may be able to help you recover damages for your pain and suffering.
