Uber & Lyft Sexual Assault Lawyers
Uber and Lyft market themselves as a safe way to get from point A to point B. Unfortunately, Uber and Lyft’s insufficient background checks and lax hiring practices for drivers have created easy opportunity for sexual assault against passengers, and these problems have only gotten worse as Uber and Lyft have expanded.

When Should You Talk to a Lawyer?
If you think you have been sexually assaulted by a driver in a ride-share app like Lyft or Uber, it is important that you contact a lawyer. Although the driver likely caused your injuries, Uber or Lyft may be responsible as well if the driver had a history of sexual assault or if they were otherwise negligently hired. Because evidence regarding an assault should be collected as soon as possible, speaking with an attorney immediately is important to your case.
