  • Seeking legal counsel from an experienced attorney can help victims understand their rights and legal options. They can provide legal guidance for victims of Uber or Lyft assault, assisting victims of sexual assault in filing lawsuits against Uber or Lyft to seek compensation for the physical and emotional damages they have suffered.

Our Lawyers Can Provide Lyft Sexual Assault Case Support

Victims in New Mexico may pursue a civil case against the driver and maybe the ride-sharing business. The legal doctrine of "respondent superior" may be applicable, which imposes liability on employers for wrongdoing committed by their staff members while acting on behalf of their employers. Although this doctrine is often challenged, some courts have decided that Uber and Lyft are accountable for sexual assaults that their drivers commit.
