Frequently Asked Questions About Lyft Sexual Assaults
How Do I Know if I Was Assaulted? What Exactly is Sexual Assault?
When a person intentionally sexually touches someone else without that person’s consent, maybe coerces, or even physically forces a person to engage in a sexual act against his/her will, that is the crime of sexual assault. You may think that by allowing it to happen, you share blame in your own assault. However, a failure to refuse or say “no” is never considered consent. It is common for survivors to freeze up during an assault. However, even if you didn’t fight off your abuser, it is still sexual assault.

Why is Lyft Liable for My Sexual Assault?
Some corporations are driven by one thing: the bottom line. While Lyft says they are concerned with protecting their customers, their actions tell another story. We know that the only effective way to get change in the way Lyft operates is by hitting them in the pocketbook.
There are many steps that Lyft could take to protect their passengers, but they simply choose not to. They could have a more rigorous screening process for their drivers. They could offer better training for their drivers, and more safeguards to protect their passengers. They could take more steps to prevent these assaults, but they do not.
Why is This So Important to Us?
We feel passionately about our fight to end sexual assaults by Lyft drivers on women. We believe that, by fighting against sexual assault on an institutional level, we can inspire significant widespread change that allows everyone to be protected from sexual assaults and abuse.
