Kidnapping and assaults occurring during Uber trips have become common news stories lately. Based on previous stories, we could only assume the kinds of complaints that Uber was getting, but now, Uber has revealed the severity and volume of its complaints over the past two years.

Uber received 5,981 claims of sexual assault in the U.S. in 2017 and 2018.

According to the report, over half of those accused were the drivers during the trip.

Getting people from Point A to Point B in the shortest amount of time possible allows people to get to their destinations more quickly and without strenuous activity. No one wants to climb 40 flights of stairs when they could simply use a machine that will do the job in less time and without the exertion.

When accidents do happen, they can cause significant injuries to innocent people. While fighting for your rights may not be an easy process, this is how you can move forward from the incident.
