Lyft Sexual Assault Laywers
Over 10,000 reports of sexual assault have been filed by passengers and drivers of ride-share apps Uber and Lyft to date. This number was calculated from a 2019 report from Uber and a recent report from Lyft. The data in the Lyft report indicates between 2017 and 2019 there were 4,158 reports of sexual assault categorized as follows:
- Non-consensual touching of a sexual body part- 2,300 reports
- Non-consensual kissing of a non-sexual body part- 672 reports
- Non-consensual kissing of a sexual body part- 506 reports
- Attempted non-consensual sexual penetration (attempted rape)- 320 reports
- Non-consensual sexual penetration (rape)- 360 reports
These numbers are alarming. Even more so is the fact that reports of attempted rape and rape increased between 2018 and 2019. These numbers also do not account for unreported incidents of sexual assault or rape as many people who suffer sexual abuse delay reporting for a variety of reasons. While both Uber and Lyft have stated the companies have a commitment to safety, these numbers would indicate that not enough is being done.
