Uber and Sexual Assaults

Late in 2019, Uber released a report that indicated that riders reported 3,045 sexual assaults in the U.S. in the year 2018. This was an increase in numbers compared to the 2,936 sexual assaults that were reported in 2017. Uber’s own report acknowledges that these numbers may be low because sexual assault is often underreported by victims.

Uber claims that it has been committed to improving rider safety. After they instituted daily background checks on their drivers, they got rid of more than 20,000 of the drivers that were signed up with their service. Victims and victim advocates do not feel that this is enough and think that Uber should do more rigorous background checks as well as install safety equipment, such as cameras, in the cars that Uber drivers drive.

Uber is notorious for not taking responsibility for a wide variety of problems with their drivers. If you need help making Uber accountable for the wrongdoings of their company for hiring dangerous drivers, a Washington, D.C. sexual assault lawyer may be able to help you.

Uber and Sexual Assault Claims

Uber has an investigation unit that is committed to responding to incidents that occur via its platform but many people have experienced that the unit does more to shield Uber from liability, rather than it being a valuable tool to investigate rider complaints in order to make their platform safer for both drivers and riders. Uber does not share their reports with law enforcement agencies even though doing this may help to prevent other riders from being assaulted in the future.

If you need help with holding Uber accountable for hiring a dangerous driver, the sooner you contact a Washington, D.C. sexual assault lawyer, the sooner they may be able to start building a strong case to do this for you.

When it comes to lawsuits, Uber often tries to limit their liability by claiming that they do not actually employ their drivers but are simply offering a platform to connect drivers and riders, and are thus not responsible for anything their driver’s do.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
