Lyft Driver Background Checks
Both Lyft and Uber’s negligent hiring practices and insufficient background checks on drivers have created easy opportunity for sexual and/or physical assault on passengers. Our team of lawyers will protect the identity of any individual who has experienced such an event, and vigorously advocate to get them just compensation for what they endured.
Uber settled a lawsuit filed by the District Attorneys of Los Angeles and San Francisco in 2015 for $25 million, for what the government asserted was false and misleading statements regarding safety. They are now adding features such as in-app 911 calling to try and turn around a history of lax safety. A CNN report identified over a hundred instances in the United States of assault, battery, or sexual assault during rideshares.
