San Antonio TX Rideshare Rape - Don't Suffer in Silence, Know Your Rights

Rideshare apps have largely replaced conventional taxi services for most San Antonio residents, but along with the increased affordability and conveniences of services like Uber come new dangers. According to a recent report from the Government Accountability Office, rideshare companies reported about 4,600 cases of sexual assault in 2019.

Victims of these crimes often find themselves fighting against the powerful legal teams of large rideshare companies when seeking justice. With an experienced lawyer on your side, however, you can sue rideshare companies for rape in Texas, and secure essential compensation to aid with your recovery.

First Steps for Victims of Rideshare Sexual Assault

Liability in Rideshare Sexual Assault Cases

Perpetrators of rideshare rape will be prosecuted, criminally, for their actions. Additionally, however, victims may be entitled to seek damages through civil action. The compensation won by these means can be essential relief for the financial strain associated with your recuperation.

Holding Rideshare Companies Liable
