Can I Sue if a Lyft Driver Attacked Me?

Yes, you can sue him and you can sue Lyft if a Lyft driver attacked you. You, undeniably, have the right to sue the party who harmed you—the Lyft driver. But could you sue Lyft as well? In general, Lyft is not liable for the actions of their drivers due to the driver’s classification of independent contractors. In general, Lyft is not liable for the actions of their drivers. However, the rideshare company could be held accountable, especially if Lyft’s negligence contributed to the incident. How could Lyft be negligent? Lyft is required to do many things, such as subject their drivers to background checks and investigate complaints, for example. If a Lyft driver fails a background check due to a history of violent crime but is still allowed to drive for the company, Lyft could be found negligent and liable for any harm caused by the Lyft driver. Likewise, if Lyft receives complaints of physical aggression but fails to investigate the driver, the company could also be negligent and liable. Because of that, you could sue if a Lyft driver attacked you. For more information about your rights to file a lawsuit, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible.

The Potential Value of Your Claim

However, the value associated with the claim depends on many factors. Below, there are a few examples of past verdicts and settlements for physical assault claims:

  • $100,000—the victim suffered a jaw injury after he was physically assaulted and thrown into a trashcan.
  • $106,000—the victim suffered a severe jaw injury after he was punched in the face at a party.
  • $405,000—the victim was verbally and physically assaulted by his caretakers.
  • $460,000—the victim was physically assaulted and stabbed in a parking lot.
