What comes to mind when you think of Uber? For many, Uber is simply a convenient rideshare service that has provided millions of rides to passengers. Uber is also responsible for providing hundreds of thousands of drivers with jobs and wages. Uber was founded approximately nine years ago and has since expanded to more than six hundred cities. The rideshare company has provided many people with an alternative method of transportation. Unfortunately, many passengers have been victimized by Uber drivers in Uber vehicles. Over the years, there have been many allegations against Uber drivers—claiming that passengers have suffered sexual assault during rides.

Many of the victims of Uber sexual assault never seek legal assistance. In many instances, they believe that the drivers cannot be accused, or they believe that they do not have enough information to take legal action against the driver liable. However, the victims of sexual assault have rights—even if their attackers were Uber drivers. Our law firm is dedicated to helping all victims of Uber sexual assaults exercise their right to compensation. Our attorneys have spent many years representing the victims of sexual assault. Uber sexual assault is a relatively new type of claim; however, our tireless attorneys have dedicated themselves to gathering all relevant information and developing expertise that can only be seen in the attorneys at Kenmore Law Group.

Uber’s Responsibility to Passengers

Do you feel safe when you take an Uber? You should feel safe whenever you choose Uber as your method of transportation. Uber is a common carrier—a company that provides transportation in exchange for a fee. All common carriers must do everything within their reach to ensure that their passengers arrive at their destination safely. An essential step in ensuring the safety of their passengers includes conducting background checks on all prospective drivers. These background checks identify negative characteristics in prospective driver’s background—such as a past conviction of sexual assault. For many years, Uber’s background checks could only check up to seven years of a prospective driver’s background. A new law allows Uber access to prospective driver’s lifelong background checks. If Uber is taking the necessary precautions when hiring independent contractors to drive for the rideshare company, why does sexual assault continue to be a problem for passengers? Unfortunately, any person can have a clean background check as long as they have never been convicted of their crimes. In the case of sexual assault, only a few victims ever accuse their attackers; therefore, many people with a history of sexual assault go undetected by background checks. The ridesharing company also allows passengers to review their riding experience and their driver. Passengers have the opportunity to identify areas of concern in their reviews; however, one negative review is generally not enough to affect a driver. Uber is not tolerant of any physical contact between drivers and passengers—any type of physical contact or sexual conduct with a passenger can result in an investigation and, upon confirmation, deactivation of driver accounts. As mentioned above, sexual assault victims often do not take action against their attackers; they do not report the incidents. If they do not report the incidents, Uber cannot take action to remove the liable drivers and continue to promote safety in their company.

Compensation Available for Victims

If you were a victim of sexual assault in an Uber, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit. Rape by an Uber driver or any form of inappropriate touching is grounds for a lawsuit. If you file a lawsuit, you might be eligible to recover compensation. Some of the different categories of compensation that you might be eligible to receive are listed below:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

The amount of compensation that you might be eligible to receive depends on the specific details of your claim. For example, if the sexual assault resulted in minor medical expenses and no lost wages, victims would not receive much compensation from those two categories. The case would be worth more if the sexual assault left a victim with severe injuries that required complex surgeries and medical care, as well as prevented the victim from working. If Uber was aware of the driver’s sexual misconduct but failed to remove him or her promptly, the type of compensation recovered for punitive damages would increase significantly. For more information about the type of compensation that you might be eligible to recover, you must immediately speak with our attorneys. Our attorneys will evaluate your claim and discuss the estimated settlement value of your claim. Our experienced Uber sexual assault lawyers know how much you have suffered and know the value of your claim; our attorneys will not rest until you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your claim.

Past Uber Sexual Assault Settlement Amounts

Our law firm has been approached many times with the following questions. How much is an Uber sexual assault case worth? How much can a victim of sexual harassment receive from Uber? The value of an Uber rape case depends on the specific circumstances of a claim. Although the average value of an Uber assault case can be difficult to determine because of the secrecy of such settlements, estimates can be made. Past sexual assault victims have received the following amounts of compensation:

  • $168,000—the victim suffered unwanted sexual advances, unwanted touching, and inappropriate sexual comments.
  • $27,000—the victim was sexually assaulted and suffered permanent mental and emotional distress.
  • $40,000—the victim suffered rape, which resulted in internal injuries and affected the victim mentally and emotionally.
  • $1 million—a woman who requested an Uber woke up in the driver’s home. She was sexually assaulted and raped.
  • $22 million—the victim was a victim of sexual harassment; the attacker made solicitations for sex and repeatedly called her inappropriate names.
  • $21 million—the victim was the target of obscene comments.
  • $1.5 million—the victim was repeatedly harassed and the target of sexual advances because of her gender.

Although the settlement amounts listed above should give you an understanding of the average case value for an Uber sexual assault case, you should not base the value of your case on these examples. An Uber sexual assault and battery case can be worth anything based on the specific details of a claim. Because of this, it is essential that victims seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Only an experienced attorney can review your claim and give you information about the estimated value of your claim.
