Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted in a Rideshare by their Driver

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan, an experienced licensed lawyer in Virginia, has represented numerous victims of rideshare sexual assaults in rideshares in civil lawsuits. Below, Kevin shares his thought on victims of sexual assault in rideshares legal options.

“People trust rideshare services and rideshare drivers to get them safely from one location to the next. Unfortunately, many accusations of sexual assault against rideshare drivers have been reported across the country. As a result, these rideshare companies, such as Uber and Lyft, have received a lot of criticism from their customers. When a victim is sexually assaulted by a rideshare driver, they should question if the company did everything possible to protect them. Rideshare companies must attempt to ensure all their drivers are trustworthy and avoid hiring predators.”

“Rideshare companies have a legal duty to provide a safe riding environment and protect their passengers. Therefore, adequate safety measures should be implemented to ensure the safety of passengers can be upheld. Examples of safety measures include background checks, monitoring cameras, and easy reporting systems. If a rideshare company does not have adequate safety measures and a rideshare driver sexually assaults a passenger, the company might be considered negligent in the assault. An example of negligence is if the company does not properly review misconduct complaints against their drivers. In cases of negligence, victims should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit against the rideshare company.”
