While somewhat uncommon, rideshare accidents in Washington do occasionally happen, and when they do it is only right that you are able to seek compensation against the negligent party.

But that won’t stop the experienced Edmonds car accident attorneys at Certa Law Group from helping you recover the compensation you deserve.

Rideshare Accidents in Washington | Uber and Lyft
With Uber and Lyft becoming more common ways to travel in our society, one question you may have is, “What do I do if I’m involved in a car accident in Washington while I’m in an Uber or Lyft?” A couple of things to keep in mind. One is that, typically Uber and Lyft drivers will be covered by higher levels of coverage than the average Joe driving on the street, so you should be well-covered, in most cases, up to a million dollars.
Rideshare Accidents in Washington | No-Fault Coverage
The second thing to keep in mind is that Washington recently passed a law providing no-fault coverage for Uber and Lyft drivers. What that means is that your medical bills, if you’re a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, would be covered by the Uber or Lyft insurance company. The third thing to keep in mind is that, if you are involved in an Uber or Lyft case, you really need an attorney. This is one of the most difficult insurance companies to reach, and so you’re probably going to have to put dozens of phone-calls out there before anybody returns a call. This is the reason why you hire an attorney to advocate on your behalf.
