Justice for Rideshare Assault Survivors in San Antonio

Like other big cities, San Antonio has become inundated with rideshare services like Lyft and Uber. While these apps have become integral to daily commuting, an unfortunate reality has emerged—incidents of sexual assault against rideshare passengers. In these distressing situations, Carabin Shaw attorneys stand ready to champion the cause of survivors, advocating for justice and accountability.

Understanding the Prevalence of Rideshare Sexual Assault in San Antonio

The convenience and accessibility offered by rideshare services have unfortunately given rise to an unsettling increase in sexual assaults. It’s a pressing issue that demands attention, empathy, and effective legal recourse. Carabin Shaw’s expert attorneys, with their extensive experience in personal injury law, are poised to address this critical concern, providing support and representation to survivors seeking justice.

Recent local Uber/Lyft sexual assaults incidents include:

  • July 2017: A San Antonio woman sued Lyft and one of its drivers for over $1 million, alleging she was sexually assaulted during a ride home. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff accused Lyft and the driver of acting with "flagrant and malicious disregard" for her "health and safety."
  • October 2017: An Uber driver was charged with sexually assaulting an unconscious passenger in San Antonio. The driver claimed the passenger was drunk, and he initially drove her around before taking the passenger to his home. He faced a second-degree felony charge of sexual assault.
  • April 2023: An Uber driver was arrested for sexual assault after allegedly forcing a San Antonio passenger to perform oral sex. Authorities believe there may have been additional victims.
