What is Shared Liability in an Uber or Lyft Case?

You may have heard that there is a shared liability in Dallas TX rideshare assaults. This means that the person who committed the physical or emotional assault is to blame for their actions, but, the company that employed the individual is equally at fault. The company and the driver share the responsibility for the assault and for the payment of damages that occurred as a result of the assault.

Why Shared Liability Applies in Texas Rideshare Assaults
  • Shared liability applies in the cases of assault committed during an Uber or Lyft ride:
  • Because the driver is responsible for what they say or do
  • If the assault is committed by another passenger, the driver is responsible for allowing the action to continue
  • The company that employs a driver is at fault because they are responsible for the actions of their employees while the employee is on duty.
The Texas Assault Laws

The Texas assault laws define an assault as:

  • Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to another person
  • Threatening another person with imminent bodily injury
  • Causing physical contact with another person when you know they will consider the contact to be offensive or provocative

Remember that if you have been the victim of an assault you did nothing wrong. The perpetrator of the assault is guilty, and the company that employs the perpetrator may also be guilty because they employed them and may have demonstrated some negligence in doing so.

Most Common Assaults Reported
