How Do I know I was Assaulted? What is the Difference Between Assault and 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.

According to the National Center for Victims of Crime:

Sexual assault takes many forms including attacks such as rape or attempted rape, as well as any unwanted sexual contact or threats. Usually a sexual assault occurs when someone touches any part of another person’s body in a sexual way, on top of clothing or under clothing without that person’s consent.

It is possible you may have been physically injured. An attacker that uses only enough force to subdue is far more common, however. Many survivors of sexual assault often recount the feeling of a catatonic state. They remember being unable to move during the heinous crime. When experiencing such a trauma, the body reacts with an instinct of fight, flight, or freeze. The failure or down-right inability to say, “no” can never, ever be considered consent. You were in survival mode, you did what you had to do in that moment so that you could live through this attack. We trust you, and will fight for you.

How Do I Know if I Was Assaulted? What Exactly is Sexual Assault?

Women Are Commonly Assaulted After a Night of Drinking

If a woman is intoxicated, she cannot consent to sex. It is that simple. Black and white. In order for sex to be lawful, both parties must be able to give consent. Anyone who is passed out, partially conscious, or in the least bit intoxicated cannot consent to sex. In order to give consent an audible response must be given. The inability to say, “no” is automatically considered to be a clear case of not giving consent. When you bring a case against Lyft for the actions of their drivers, you help us hold those who violated your rights accountable.

The Consequences of Drinking and Driving Can be Fatal

In our experience, the primary reason people hire a Lyft is to avoid driving while intoxicated. Ridesharing companies use this as a reason to hire their services. It has become generally encouraged for people to call a Lyft if they have been drinking Lyft advertises themselves as a safe alternative to driving after having a fun night out, drinking with friends.

Unfortunately, many who make the right choice of hiring a Lyft instead of driving, are then taken advantage of by unscrupulous drivers that prey on vulnerable woman. The only repercussion someone should face after a night out on the town is a hangover. It is a crime to have to face the life-shattering fallout of a sexual assault.

If you were assaulted while impaired or passed out, we can help you seek justice. Just because you had been drinking, does not make this your fault.

Standing Up Against These Criminals Can Stop Sexual Predators

Sexual predators are like serial killers. They will continue to assault innocent victims until they are stopped. They often times choose jobs that allow them easy access to people that they can prey upon. These monsters may go on to harm countless lives before they are caught. It is natural to be fearful, confused, shameful, or feel at fault. But to remain silent will not break the cycle of violence. When you hold one of these predators accountable, you can break the chain of abuse. Lyft does not care about anything other than their stock price. Hold them accountable for the crime they have committed against you by hiring the beast that changed your life forever.
