Rideshare Assault and Abuse

Rideshare companies, like Uber and Lyft, market their ridesharing services as a safe, convenient mode of transportation, and have become a popular choice of transportation.  However, reports of passengers being subjected to sexual violence, physical assaults, and abuse by their rideshare drivers have been on the rise.  Legal action can be brought against the driver directly, and in many cases, against the rideshare company for failing to take appropriate action to prevent such incidents.  If you have been a victim of assault or abuse while using a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft, contact our office to speak with one of our qualified attorneys to help discuss your options.

Sexual Assault and Abuse

Overcoming the physical and emotional trauma of sexual assault and abuse can be difficult and intimidating.  Survivors of sexual assault can be faced with one of the toughest moments of their lives when they seek to confront their abusers.  While criminal proceedings may lead to criminal charges against an abuser, criminal proceedings do not award damages to survivors.  A civil claim or lawsuit can help survivors recover monetary compensation to help them overcome the trauma of sexual assault, a life-altering event that can change a person physically, mentally and financially.   Survivors of sexual assault often seek therapy to overcome the traumatic experience, suffer lost wages, incur medical bills, and have ongoing pain and suffering.   Getting help from the right type of lawyer that understands the complexities of these cases is crucial to helping a survivor navigate the difficult journey of holding their abusers accountable.
