Emotional Support and Reporting Process

Any unwelcome sexual activity initiated by the driver during an Uber or Lyft ride can be classified as sexual assault. This could range from inappropriate comments and touching to forced sexual acts. At Nigh Goldenberg Raso and Vaughn, we can help you understand the nuances of your case and guide you through the legal process.

Although exact numbers are difficult to ascertain, sexual assault in Uber and Lyft rides is a significant concern. Both companies have reported thousands of incidents over recent years, but the true number is likely higher due to underreporting. Our team at Nigh Goldenberg Raso and Vaughn is dedicated to helping survivors seek justice. Contact us today for a free consultation!

Sexual assault is defined by the CDC as “a sexual act that is committed or attempted by another person without freely given consent of the victim or against someone who is unable to consent or refuse.” It often involves physical force, but can also involve threatening or manipulative words, blackmail, or any kind of coercion.

Sexual assault can include a range of nonconsensual activities, such as attempted rape, rape where the victim’s body was penetrated, rape where the victim was forced to penetrate someone else’s body, unwelcome sexual touching or contact, and other nonconsensual sex acts, such as oral sex.

If you experienced any of these situations during your Uber or Lyft ride, it is considered sexual assault. If you’re unsure, it can be helpful to speak with a counselor or a trusted person in your life about what happened. The National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE (4673) can also provide support and guidance.

It’s important to stay alert during your ride. Any uncomfortable or inappropriate behavior from the driver should be taken seriously. If you’ve experienced such an incident and aren’t sure about your next steps, the legal professionals at Nigh Goldenberg Raso and Vaughn can provide guidance.

Despite having safety measures such as driver background checks and mandatory training, Uber and Lyft face criticism for their response to sexual assault incidents. At Nigh Goldenberg Raso and Vaughn, we believe these companies should be held accountable and we’re prepared to fight on your behalf.

If you’ve been sexually assaulted by an Uber or Lyft driver, the first thing you should do is call the police and file a report. This will be the official documentation of the incident, which may be needed if you choose to pursue a lawsuit. You should also seek immediate medical care to treat any injuries and to collect any potential evidence.

As soon as you feel able, write down any details you remember about the assault. This is not only an important step for your healing, but also another way of documenting the incident.

Additionally, report the assault to Uber or Lyft. For Uber, you can report sexual assault online. For Lyft, you can report through the app or by logging into your account online.

Lastly, get support. The National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE (4673) can provide help and put you in touch with local resources and support groups.
