If a driver is found guilty of sexual assault by the jury, Uber can also be made liable for the assault depending on kind of incident. A professional attorney can help in investigating the circumstances of the sexual assault and help in determining whether a lawsuit should be filed against the driver or Uber or both parties.
An Uber sexual assault case can involve both Uber and the driver. An attorney will be able to help you obtain the relevant information from Uber, which can help in proving the negligence on the part of Uber in hiring the driver.
Though the driver may have caused the assault, if the attorney is able to access Uber’s records of the driver’s history, and the history shows sexual assault, then Uber too can be made responsible for the assault as they were negligent while hiring.
