Dallas Rideshare Assault - Know Your Rights and Get the Compensation You Deserve

Dallas, TX is a large metropolitan city filled with fun things to do. From the trendy Arts District to the legendary Mesquite Rodeo, locals and tourists alike are eager to get around town efficiently and take it all in. Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have become the norm for convenient transportation and are a part of many people’s everyday lives.

Unfortunately, ridesharing comes with its dangers. Over recent years, people have come forward with their stories of physical assault. If you or someone you know has been a victim of assault while using a rideshare app, the Dallas TX personal injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw want to help you share your story and get the compensation you deserve. Working with a lawyer will allow you to focus on your physical and emotional healing while knowing that someone is fighting for justice on your behalf.

Your rights are important and valuable. Make sure that you fully understand them as a ridesharing passenger and see what financial compensation you may be entitled to after your assault.

What Are Your Rights as a Rideshare Passenger?

When you use a rideshare app, you have specific rights that are in place to keep you as safe as possible. As you begin to consider a Dallas Uber and Lyft assault lawsuit to win the justice and compensation you deserve, understanding those rights is your first objective

Rideshare Passenger Rights in Texas

  • Right to fair pricing with an estimate provided before your ride
  • Right to non-discrimination that ensures drivers cannot refuse to give you a ride based on race, sex, ethnicity, gender identity, or any other characteristic protected by local and state law
  • Right to privacy and protection of personal information
  • Right to refuse the ride if the circumstances feel unsafe
  • Right to safe transportation, ensuring the driver follows traffic laws and maintains a safe vehicle
  • Right to file a complaint if there is an issue with your ride

When you are assaulted physically, sexually, or emotionally, your rights are violated and your safety is compromised. If your situation was caused, even partially, by the negligence of the rideshare company when hiring the driver, you should speak with an attorney who can help you navigate what you need to do next.

What Can Victims Do to Seek Justice?

It can be difficult to understand what legal action should be taken after your assault in a rideshare vehicle and what options are available to you when attempting to recover damages. There are several stages to complete before pursuing a Dallas Uber or Lyft assault lawsuit, including:

  1. First, it is important to report the assault. You should submit a complaint on the rideshare app and call Dallas Police. This documentation is necessary if you seek legal action against the driver and the company.
  2. Then, you’ll need to get medical attention; the most important aspect of any case is the victim’s health and well-being. No injury is too small and the care you receive can determine your healing and recovery process. Additionally, medical records can help prove your case and the extent of your injuries.
  3. After getting medical help, you may want to consider a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. You may also pursue a negligence lawsuit against the rideshare company as they failed to provide you with a safe transportation experience.

A Dallas rideshare assault lawyer can help you determine the best course of action for your case.
