Uber and Lyft Sexual Assault

Uber and Lyft Sexual Assault

About Uber and Lyft Sexual Assault

In its first safety report released in December 2019, Uber acknowledged 3,045 sexual assaults were reported in U.S. rides in 2018 alone. These assaults involved unwanted kissing, touching of sexual body parts, attempted rape, and rape. Lyft has not released any of the same safety data that Uber has and while Uber was making headlines for reported sexual assaults, Lyft had not been implicated. Thanks to hundreds of lawsuits that have recently been filed, mostly by women, Lyft is now under the same pressure.

Responsibility to Customers

Uber’s and Lyft’s negligent hiring practices and insufficient background checks on drivers have resulted in thousands of sexual and physical assaults, particularly against women. In 2019, Uber announced they would drop terms of service restricting victims of sexual assault from filing lawsuits. Previously the firms used terms of service in their app to force injured women to settle cases in mandatory arbitration. Their past treatment of victims illustrates the need for an experienced Uber law firm or Lyft law firm to protect victims’ rights. Both companies now face hundreds of active sexual assault lawsuits filed by Uber and Lyft lawyers on behalf of victims.
