Rideshare Assault Lawsuits in Nevada

Rideshare Assaults in Nevada

Rideshare users in Nevada are at risk of being assaulted in rideshare services. These assaults can vary in severity and content. They include physical assaults, sexual assaults, rapes, carjackings, kidnappings and shootings. In any city or town where these services are available, there is a risk of these encounters.

Statistics for sexual assaults and fatal physical assaults as reported by Uber and Lyft are only available on the national level. In Uber’s safety reports, it was revealed that over 9,000 sexual assaults and 39 fatal physical assaults were reported to the company between 2017 and 2020. In Lyft’s safety report, it was revealed that over 4,000 sexual assaults and 10 fatal physical assaults were reported between 2017 and 2019. There is no reporting for non-fatal physical assaults.

No matter where your assault occurred, a qualified rideshare lawyer can help you to evaluate your options for pursuing compensation for the injuries you sustained in the assault, whether they were physical, psychological, or fall under another category.

Victims of Rideshare Assault in Nevada

Victims of rideshare assault include passengers, drivers and even third parties. People have been victims on both the Lyft and Uber platforms. Rideshare assaults can include both sexual assault and physical assault. Lyft and Uber assault victims often turn to rideshare lawyers to help them because rideshare companies do not offer proper support when approached by an individual alone in many cases.

Personal Injury Statutes of Limitations in Nevada

In Nevada, statutes of limitations set the timeframe in which you have to file your assault claim. Statutes of limitations are used to ensure that proper evidence can be available at trial, among other reasons. For rideshare assaults, the statutes most likely to apply to your case include:

  • Personal injury: 2 years from the event
  • Wrongful death: 2 years from date of death

Because exceptions to these statutes and other laws might affect your case, it is important to consult with a rideshare lawyer about your legal options. A lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf and walk you through the legal process.
