Attorneys for Uber Sexual Assault Class Action Lawsuit – File Your Claim Here
Sexual assault is something that can have far-reaching consequences in someone’s life, and in today’s interconnected world and the fact that we have come to rely on technology to solve some of our most pressing problems, it appears that there are no safe spaces anymore. Ever since ridesharing apps such as Uber and Lyft burst onto the scene many years back, questions about passenger safety have been discussed ad infinitum with many people remaining skeptical about how rigorous the background checks that are run by these companies. There have been multiple reports of sexual assault numbering in the thousands which allege that passengers have been sexually assaulted by the very drivers they designated to pick them up and drop them off to a social function or their place of work. While it may seem strange for some to call up a stranger to take them somewhere, the accessibility and convenience of these ridesharing apps have made millions of individuals across the world drop their guard and go with the flow, assuming that the driver behind the wheel has passed some form of vetting by the company. Sexual abuse can affect both genders, and there is such as culture of silence and shame around it that many people choose not to come forward with their stories because of the fear of repercussion from the perpetrators who issued threats after the act, or the doubt and lack of faith when it comes to any form of action that may be taken by the authorities. One thing’s for sure, however: sexual abuse or assault of any form is NEVER OK and it is illegal, and thanks to the thousands of people now speaking out voicing their experiences, it may now be possible to file an Uber or Lyft sexual assault class action lawsuit in order to recover compensation as well as seek closure from this dark act.

Uber Sexual Assault Reports – Alarming and Disturbing
Uber drivers have been accused of non-consensual touching of passengers in a sexual manner, attempting to reach out for unwanted kisses, attempted rape and other lewd sexual acts without the consent of the other individual. That said, many organizations complained about the fact that Uber did not include in its reports other sexual misconduct categories such as the requesting of sexual acts and favors from customers, as well as masturbation, as indicated by NPR.
In December of 2020, the State of California decided to take action when it fined Uber $59 MILLION via the California Public Utilities Commission when it was denied access to sexual assault statistics by the company. Additionally, the commission warned that the company’s operating license could be canceled for refusing to provide said information.
