Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Ride Share Driver

Attorney contributor Kim Dougherty, an experienced sexual assault lawyer, represents victims sexually assaulted in rideshares in civil lawsuits. We asked Kim to share insight on the legal options of victims sexually assaulted by rideshare drivers.

“When people call rideshares, they trust the drivers to get them from one location to the next safely. Many rideshare companies have received criticism and accusations that the company does not protect customers as numerous accusations have surfaced against Uber and Lyft drivers for sexual assault. If a rideshare company allows for a sexual predator to drive for them, the passengers in their cars are at risk of being assaulted during or after their trip.”

“Rideshare companies have a legal obligation to protect all their passengers and customers and ensure their safety. To ensure the safety of passengers, these companies must do their best to provide adequate security. An example of security measures includes cameras inside vehicles to monitor and record both the driver's and the passenger's actions. If a rideshare company fails to provide adequate security, it may be deemed negligent in a civil lawsuit. An example of negligence is if misconduct occurred by a driver but was ignored by the rideshare company. In negligence cases, victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the rideshare company and receive compensation for damages.”
