How Food Delivery Sexual Assaults Can Occur

Food delivery services have become integral to our daily lives. We trust drivers to deliver our food safely and quickly. However, some delivery workers use these services to exploit the vulnerable. 

Here is how some of the factors that can make a Doordash sexual assault occur:

  • Access to your home. When a delivery arrives at your doorstep, there is an expectation of a brief and safe interaction. Unfortunately, they may force entry into your home and commit heinous acts.
  • Saving personal information. You share sensitive information with these services. The driver may save your contact details and address to commit assault at a later time.
  • Lack of proper vetting. Food delivery companies should conduct background checks of all personnel. In some cases, they hire drivers despite knowing the danger they pose.

If you or someone you know has been affected by food delivery sexual assault, know that you are not alone. Our law firm is here to listen and help you navigate this challenging time.

Who Is Liable for These Assaults?

You need to determine liability before you can take legal action. However, this is a complex process that involves various factors. 

In most cases, the liable parties can include:

  • The driver. First and foremost, the individual who commits the assault is directly liable for their actions. They are responsible for the harm inflicted upon the victim and can face criminal charges and civil lawsuits.
  • The delivery company. Delivery companies have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their customers. If the assailant is an employee or contractor, the company may be liable if it failed to conduct proper background checks or did not have adequate safety protocols.
  • Property owners. In some cases, the location where the assault occurs could factor into liability. If the assault happens in a building or area with inadequate security measures, the property owner might be held partially responsible.

Our law firm is dedicated to unraveling these complexities and holding all responsible parties accountable. We stand with victims to ensure their rights are protected and that they receive the compensation they deserve for the trauma they have endured.
