Public Transportation Sexual Assault

Public Transit Assault Attorneys

people in motion on a subway platform | Public Transit Assault AttorneysIt is hard to comprehend the fact that sexual assaults occur on city public transit systems, yet in New York City alone, over the past five years, more than 3,200 people in the city have been victims of sexual assault while riding on a public transit system. This is actually probably a low number since such crimes often go unreported, and of those which are reported more than half will not result in a conviction. Because forcible touching is almost commonplace on mass transit systems like the subway, many are calling for stronger sanctions on these types of crimes. If you or someone you know is a survivor of this type of assault, contact our experienced public transit assault attorneys to find out what your legal options are.

New York City, with the largest mass transit system in the United States, has seen a 52 percent increase in reported sex crimes on subways over the past three years. The New York City Police Department reports that the city’s subway systems report one to two rapes per year, however it is unknown if this number is an accurate reflection of the actual number of subway rapes.

While your daily commute may be both tedious and tiring, you should never feel as though your safety is in jeopardy. New York City is far from being the only city struggling with keeping people safe on subways. In a survey of 600 women who live in Paris, 100 percent of them say they have been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted while riding the subway. Germany has taken the unusual step of designating specific cars on subways for women and children only.

These “women and children only” cars are fairly common in cities like Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Dubai and Delhi, although there is debate on how much protection is provided. For the hundreds of thousands of people who must take the subway each and every day, safety remains a huge issue, and sexual assault is much more common than we would like to think.

In Denver, public transportation includes the MallRide, the RTD light rail, and a system of city buses that take residents anywhere in the city they wish to go. Unfortunately, sexual assaults often occur on public transit. When a sexual assault occurs, you need an experienced Denver sexual assault attorney on your side to help you hold your attacker accountable.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
