Ride Sharing: Uber and Lyft Sexual Assaults Investigation

Recent reports have conveyed a terrifying side to the ride-sharing industry – drivers committing crimes against women. In many instances, companies like Uber fail to adequately screen their drivers who then use their positions of trust to prey on unsuspecting victims. In April 2018, CNN published a report identifying hundreds of Uber drivers who have been accused of sexual assault or abuse.

Stueve Siegel Hanson attorneys Norman Siegel, Steve Six, Austin Moore and Abby McClellan are investigating ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft for sexual misconduct by their drivers, and we are committed to bringing justice to victims of sexual assault.

In June 2017, Stueve Siegel Hanson filed a lawsuit against Uber on behalf of a young woman who was raped by her Uber driver. An investigation revealed that the driver had previously been convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to 16 years in prison, and other riders had complained to Uber about the driver’s inappropriate conduct, but Uber turned a blind eye and allowed him to remain on the platform.

Uber is now facing claims for negligence, fraudulent concealment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among others. The case has been reported on by the Verge, the Kansas City Star, and media outlets from across the world.
