Assault Victims in San Antonio Rideshare Incidents

Rideshare services, such as Uber and Lyft, have become incredibly prominent since their inception a decade ago. They came into existence under intense scrutiny for the safety of riders and that scrutiny continues today for good reason. Uber/Lyft assault incidents in San Antonio Tx are some of the most terrifying and dangerous circumstances that a rider can be caught in. If you have been a victim of rideshare assault, an expert attorney can fight for the justice you are due.

The San Antonio personal injury lawyers at Carabin Shaw have fought for the rights of injury victims for over three decades. We have the tools and resources necessary to ensure that, regardless of the circumstances of your assault, your assaulter is held accountable for their actions.

Uber/Lyft, Passengers, and Duty of Care

Personal injury claims come in many forms but, at the end of the day, they all commonly boil down to negligence or a breach of duty of care. However, since physical assault is rarely negligent as opposed to intentional, a breach of the duty of care is most common.

Once you enter a rideshare vehicle, drivers have a duty to follow traffic laws and ensure that you get to your destination safely. For San Antonio rideshare assault victims, this duty of care is breached when the driver turns to assault, meaning that legal action hinges on that broken duty.

Negligence from Uber and Lyft

While drivers may not be negligent by legal definition, the companies that hire them may be. In Texas, if you have been assaulted by an Uber or Lyft driver, Uber/Lyft physical assault attorneys can help you build a case against rideshare companies for negligent hiring.

These companies owe you a duty of care alongside their drivers. However, a company’s duty of care hinges on effective hiring in these cases. By proving that Uber or Lyft was negligent in their hiring process, you may be able to hold them liable for the injuries you sustained at the hands of their drivers even though the drivers are not directly employed by Uber or Lyft.

Negligence and liability are complex topics in assault cases that do not involve rideshare companies, and they are even more complicated when a large corporation is involved. At Carabin Shaw, we offer a free case review so that you have a clear understanding of the legal options for your specific case.

Compensation Available to Rideshare Assault Victims

Physical assault can have incredible and long-lasting impacts on victims, but trusted attorneys can help you win the financial compensation you need to heal. While Lyft’s community report only covers fatal assaults, victims of non-fatal assaults can recover funds for:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of life in cases where the assault was fatal
  • Lost wages due to missed or reduced work hours

The most important part of filing a claim is that you work with trusted experts. Our team has fought hard to gain the skills and resources necessary to build your strongest case. To see more examples of the work that we perform for our clients, visit Carabin Shaw reviews.
