Holding Ridesharing Companies Accountable in Dallas Sexual Assaults

Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have become a primary form of transportation in major cities, and Dallas TX is no exception. While these companies have made getting a ride more convenient and accessible, they have also provided a new environment for danger. Unfortunately, despite the background checks required, some drivers have ill intent. Over the past several years, riders have come forward to share their stories of sexual assault while in an Uber or Lyft. These devastating experiences have led to several lawsuits holding rideshare companies accountable for the harm victims experience. If you have been sexually assaulted while using a rideshare app, contact a Texas attorney to hold the company and driver responsible.

Can Rideshare Companies Be Held Accountable for Abuse?

Rideshare companies and drivers have specific laws they must follow. This includes mandatory criminal background checks, annual sex offender checks, ensuring all drivers maintain a valid driver's license, and more. Despite these efforts, the rideshare company may fail to guarantee a safe ride for passengers. Texas rideshare sexual assault laws state that rideshare companies are responsible for taking reasonable steps to keep riders out of harm’s way. When companies fail to take these steps, they may be held liable for their drivers’ actions.

The driver is ultimately responsible for their actions and will face criminal charges, civil lawsuits, and additional penalties when properly reported. In some cases, a third party may be held liable for the assault of victims as well. For example, the passenger’s destination may not be secure, and should the assault happen on the premises, that party may be held liable.

Overall, every case is unique and each of these parties can be held liable for the abuse and losses of the victim. It’s best to partner with a lawyer who can help you navigate your Dallas rideshare sexual assault lawsuit, allowing you to focus on your physical, mental, and emotional recovery.
