Holding Rideshare Companies Accountable for Passenger Safety in San Antonio TX

Many people depend on companies like Uber and Lyft for transportation. Whether that’s a daily commute to work or an occasional ride while on vacation, rideshare companies have become a huge part of modern life. If you are a rideshare user who was recently assaulted by a driver with Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare app, you may be entitled to compensation. Partner with a rideshare assault lawyer as soon as possible to hold the negligent, guilty parties accountable.

People living in busy cities like San Antonio, Texas are likely to use rideshare services more often. Rides to visit River Walk, the Alamo, the Japanese Tea Garden, and more are common for locals and visitors alike. The demand for drivers is high, raising the likelihood that people will encounter a dangerous ride.

Companies like Uber and Lyft are required to guarantee specific rights to riders. When a rider is assaulted, several of those rights are violated. The San Antonio assault attorneys at Carabin Shaw have helped people like you navigate the legal process after their assault. Let us fight for justice and win you the compensation you deserve.

What Should You Do If You’re Assaulted?
  1. Physical and sexual assault are both very traumatic experiences that require medical attention. After your assault, it is so important to visit a doctor who can evaluate your injuries immediately or as soon as possible. This also begins the necessary paper trail needed to build a lawsuit.
  2. After visiting a doctor, you should report the assault. Reports will need to be submitted both to the San Antonio Police Department and the rideshare company via the app. Both the company and the police will conduct investigations for your case.
  3. Continue to document the assault by taking photos of your injuries, ripped clothing, damaged property, and any other evidence of the incident.
  4. Once you’ve taken care of yourself both physically and emotionally, consider contacting a Lawyer for rideshare passenger injury. Discussing your case with an attorney can help you determine options that are the best for your unique case.

Carabin Shaw offers a free consultation for all potential clients to answer the initial questions you have and to evaluate the strength of your case.

Who Is Accountable For Your Losses?

As you begin to consider your legal options, it is important to understand who you can sue. Weighing every option is important to make certain you get the maximum compensation possible and hold the correct parties accountable. As a passenger assaulted by a rideshare driver in San Antonio Texas, you can sue:

  • The rideshare company (like Uber or Lyft): When you are assaulted, the company failed to provide you with safe transportation. This may have been due to negligent hiring or retaining processes on their part. The rideshare company can then be held liable for your injury.
  • The driver: In addition to criminal charges, the driver may also owe you compensation for the crime against you. This depends on the driver’s financial situation.
  • A third party: if your assault happened at your destination, like in the lobby of a building, the owner may owe you compensation as they were unable to guarantee your right to safety on the premises.

Depending on your unique case, you may be owed compensation for medical bills, lost wages, mental and emotional stress, pain and suffering, and more.
