What Should You Do If You’re A
Sexual Assault Victim in a Rideshare?
If you have been sexually assaulted while using a ride-sharing service, you should report it immediately. Victims of sexual assault sometimes feel traumatized twice—first, by the initial assault, and then, again, by the unfair treatment, they may receive after reporting the assault. Regardless of the circumstances, a sexual assault is never your fault, and you have the right to report it and obtain justice for what your attacker did to you.
You can report your assault in numerous ways, including through the National Sexual Assault Hotline, at 1-800-656-HOPE, and by contacting law enforcement. Uber and Lyft both have strict policies against sexual assault, and they encourage reporting on the websites. Both the Uber and Lyft apps have reporting features and phone numbers for reporting all incidents of sexual assault, harassment, or misconduct.
If you are a victim of a sexual assault while ride-sharing, you have the right to seek justice for your injuries by filing a civil lawsuit against the person who assaulted you and potentially against the rideshare company as well. (re: Cutter Law P.C.)
