How often do you use Uber’s ridesharing services to get from one place to another? When you get into an Uber, do you expect to get to your destination safely? Regardless of the frequency that you use Uber, you likely always expect to arrive at your destination without suffering any harm. Undeniably, there is always the risk of being involved in an auto accident when you ride in an Uber vehicle. However, would you ever expect your Uber driver to physically assault you?

Unfortunately, there have been some reports of Uber drivers assaulting passengers. Whether an argument with an Uber driver which turns into a physical fight between the Uber driver and the Uber passenger or the Uber driver attacked the passenger without provocation, the company might face some consequences.

Uber’s Liability

Is Uber liable if an Uber driver attacks a passenger? If an Uber driver attacked the passenger, many people might assume that Uber would be automatically liable for the incident—especially considering that the driver was hired by Uber. However, Uber drivers are considered independent contractors; therefore, Uber’s liability for incidents surrounding their drivers could be unclear. In many instances, the driver that attacked the passenger could be the only liable party. Under certain circumstances, however, Uber could be liable.

Uber has certain regulations that must be followed when hiring a driver. For instance, the driver must be above a certain age, carry insurance, licensed to drive, and have access to a four-door car. The most important requirements consist of a driving record check and background check. Since driving is the main component to being an Uber driver, prospective drivers must have a clean driving record. The background check will identify any instances of criminal behavior, including a record of violence towards others. If a prospective driver cannot pass a background check, he or she cannot become a driver for Uber.

In the past, companies could only go back as far as seven years during background checks. Therefore, any crimes that would have made a prospective driver ineligible to become a part of Uber’s team would have gone unseen. In California, a new law has allowed rideshare companies to access prospective driver’s complete backgrounds. Therefore, instead of only having access to seven years of background, rideshare companies will be able to check a prospective driver’s lifetime background.

Uber is also known to perform random background checks on current drivers to check for new items on their background checks. If any updates to their drivers’ background checks make them ineligible to continue driving, they are instantly deactivated as drivers.

Although rideshare companies have access to extensive, and sometimes random, background checks, many drivers slip through the cracks and are allowed to drive for Uber even if they should be ineligible. It is important to note that background checks only identify parties that have been processed for criminal activity. If someone has been involved in criminal activities but has never been caught and processed, a background check would not prevent them from being hired to drive for Uber.

Even though Uber’s thorough background checks make it difficult for the company to be found liable for any incident of violence from a driver to a passenger, it is not impossible. If you would like to learn more about your right to sue after a driver attacked you, you must contact our law firm immediately. Our knowledgeable attorneys will provide you with all the information that you need to file a claim against Uber.

Your Right to Sue

As mentioned above, Uber’s thorough background checks could make it difficult to prove that they were liable for any instances of assault and battery against their passengers. However, Uber could still be found liable under certain circumstances, and you could have the right to sue and receive compensation. For example, if someone fails the background check but is allowed to drive for Uber, the company could be liable for any harm caused by incidents involving that driver. Likewise, if Uber received many concerning complaints about a driver but failed to take action after receiving the complaints, Uber could be liable for any harm that the driver caused. If you are unsure about whether Uber is liable for the harm that you suffered, you must contact our attorneys. You might have grounds to file a lawsuit against Uber after you were harmed by an Uber driver. If you would like to learn more about passenger rights to file a physical assault lawsuit against Uber drivers, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible. Our attorneys have all the information necessary after an Uber passenger gets attacked by his driver; do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible.
