Rideshare Assault Lawsuits in Wisconsin

Rideshare Assaults in Wisconsin

Wisconsin rideshare users are at risk of rideshare-related assault. These sexual assaults and physical assaults have occurred across the state of Wisconsin. Some assaults fall under subcategories like rape, carjacking, kidnapping or shooting.

The statistics on these assaults are limited but revealing. Uber and Lyft began publishing safety reports after years of public and political pressure. Lyft’s safety report showed that between 2017 and 2019, users reported 4,000+ sexual assaults, 10 fatal physical assaults and 105 Lyft-related motor Vehicle fatalities. Uber’s reports showed that between 2017 and 2020, users reported 9,000+ sexual assaults, 39 fatal physical assaults and 208 Uber-related motor vehicle accidents directly to the platform. These numbers are likely low due to underreporting.

There have been victims on both the Lyft and Uber platforms. Whether in a large city or a small town, wherever your rideshare assault occurred, a qualified rideshare lawyer may be able to help you recover damages for your injuries.

Victims of Rideshare Assault in Wisconsin

Wisconsin victims of rideshare assault may have been sexually assaulted or physically assaulted. While it is important to report your assault to Lyft or Uber, victims often find a company’s initial response to be unacceptable and turn to a rideshare lawyer for added support. An experienced lawyer will know how to best approach these companies for additional damages.

Personal Injury Statutes of Limitations in Wisconsin

Statutes of limitations (SOLs) are laws that dictate how long you have after an injury to file a lawsuit related to it. In the case of rideshare assault, that means a certain amount of years from the date of the incident. Personal injury and wrongful death SOLs are the two types that may apply to your case. The personal injury SOL in Wisconsin is 3 years from the date of the injury and the Wisconsin wrongful death SOL is 3 years from the date of death. There may be additional statutes of limitations or other laws that affect your case, so it is important to consult with a rideshare lawyer for help filing a rideshare lawsuit and learning about your legal options.
