STEVE CRANE JR IS THE ATTORNEY THAT GETS you justice for Rideshare sexual abuse and assault.

Rideshare Driver Sexual Abuse and Assault | CIVIL LAWSUITS


Catching an Uber or Lyft has become one of the most popular ways to get around. For many victims, however, hailing a rideshare vehicle ends in tragedy. Rideshare incident data reports 374 sexual assaults and harassments involving Uber and Lyft vehicles from 2015 to 2018. Sexual abuse from drivers and fellow passengers could cause a victim substantial physical and emotional harm.

As a rideshare passenger, you have the right to expect a certain standard of care from the company, driver, and fellow passengers. This standard of care includes freedom from violent and sexual crimes. Assault, battery, sexual abuse, rape, molestation, harassment or another type of crime during a ride or shortly after could be grounds for a criminal and civil case.

Have you or a loved one been inappropriately touched or treated during a rideshare? If so, you may have a legitimate claim against the company, driver, and fellow passengers.

Steve Crane Jr. is relentless in his pursuit of being the victim’s champion. Why? What lit this intense fire in him?

Since the launch of rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft, claims of sexual assault and harassment have unfortunately become rampant.

In 2018, Uber had 3,045 sexual assaults during rideshares in U.S.

A CNN investigation last year found more than a dozen cases of Lyft drivers being accused of sexual assault and abuse across the country, and more than a hundred cases for Uber drivers. Further statistics include:


Uber’s Special Investigations Unit is trained to protect the company before passengers, Greg Bensinger reported for The Washington Post.

Uber does not allow the SIU to report allegations against its drivers to police, according to former investigator Lilli Flores, The Post reported.

CNN reported internal investigators working for Uber’s Special Investigations Unit were overworked, underpaid and at times emotionally traumatized as they struggled under the burden of nearly 1,200 cases every week.


If you or your loved one are injured or suffered harm while in an Uber or Lyft, there are legal actions that can be taken to compensate you and seek justice.

Liability Insurance – which provides the insured party with protection against claims resulting from injuries and damage to people and property – is mandatory in all states. Both Uber and Lyft generally have insurance policies valued at one million dollars.


A child is entitled to privacy under State and Federal Law. Michigan Courts will protect your right to file as a “Jane or John Doe” to permit a child to maintain anonymity and privacy while still allowing you to pursue justice.

An adult is entitled to privacy too. When possible, Steve will file your case as “Jane or John Doe.” This can keep your identity private, while still allowing you to pursue the deserved justice.

If you are a survivor of sexual abuse or assault, it is important that you have legal counsel that understands and has compassion to address the damages you have suffered emotionally and physically.

Under Michigan law (MCL 600.5805) a plaintiff has three years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. The “clock” will begin to “tick” on the date of the criminal act that caused your injuries. There are exceptions to the rules. Minors and victims of sexual abuse may have up to three years or the age of 28 years old, whichever is longer. In some cases, you may have less time to file a claim.
