Reporting the Incident to Uber and Law Enforcement

The first move in this phase is to officially report the incident both to Uber through their in-app safety features and to your local law enforcement. Failure to report can seriously undermine your case, as it may appear as though you did not take the incident seriously enough to warrant immediate action. You'll need to provide all the evidence you've gathered, such as ride details, medical records, and any correspondence.

Gathering Necessary Documentation

The strength of your case heavily relies on the amount and quality of evidence you can provide. This includes not only incident-specific information but also any subsequent costs you've incurred as a result.

Have you needed therapy? Have you lost work? All these factors could contribute to the final settlement amount. Keep records of every related expense, medical visits, and any other costs related to the incident.

How to File a Sexual Assault Report

Filing a sexual assault report with the law enforcement agencies is a formal process that usually involves giving a statement about the events that transpired. This step could also involve interviews and collection of additional evidence.

The procedure can be complex and emotionally challenging, making the support and guidance of a lawyer invaluable.
