Uber Accident Lawyer Portland Oregon
Why You Need a Lawyer
Ridesharing services are becoming increasingly popular in Portland and throughout Oregon. Uber and Lyft are the big players. With this popularity, there has been a surge of car crashes that involve Uber and Lyft drivers. People who have suffered significant injuries have often hit a brick wall when seeking compensation for their claims. We can help.
We recommend getting a lawyer in most car accidents when a person is seriously injured. This is even more important when ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft are involved. These cases are more difficult because you are going up against huge corporations that will try to deny your claim often by alleging that their driver was not an employee at all. There are multiple layers of insurance that apply depending on if the driver was seeking a fare, had a fare, or not. The insurance companies involved make a habit of being difficult. Uber uses James River Insurance in New Jersey. They are incredibly difficult to deal with for the average person. Also, depending on where the accident happened, the city regulations that apply to rideshare companies might be different. You need to know if the Uber or Lyft driver was even legally operating.
