Were You Injured While Riding or Driving with Lyft or Uber?

Everett Uber Lyft AccidentsRideshare companies such as Lyft and Uber have revolutionized the way thousands of Washingtonians travel. With just a swipe and a tap, a ride can be at your door in minutes. With this convenience also comes complications and unfortunately, accidents. In Washington, rideshare companies are required by law to carry $1,000,000 of liability coverage in addition to Personal Injury Protection. Whether you were injured in a rideshare accident as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, we at the Law Offices of Matthew Dubin can help.

Unlike taxis, rideshare drivers use their own vehicles to transport passengers. These cars are not covered by commercial insurance policies. The insurance coverage available depends on whether the driver had a passenger or was on the way to pick up a passenger at the time of the incident. These variables can add an additional layer of protection, but also confusion, when interpreting the law. That is why these claims require a thorough understanding of a complex, nuanced area of the law.

As a Passenger
