Herschensohn Law isn’t like other personal injury firms. We don’t settle cases just to get them over with––and we don’t take on hundreds of clients only to spread ourselves too thin. We take your case’s outcome just as seriously as you do.
When you partner with our firm, you get:
RCW 4.16.080 outlines how long you have to file a lawsuit following a car accident. You generally have three years to file your case, with the deadline beginning from the date of the accident. We manage this deadline, so you don’t lose the right to seek damages. Yet, we must learn about your situation before we can start advocating for you.
Lawyers have a reputation for being expensive. However, as we said, we stand apart from other Ellensburg rideshare accident firms. That’s because we make legal help financially accessible by operating on a contingency-fee basis. In this arrangement:
We also offer free, no-obligation case reviews where you can learn more about partnering with our team. During our conversation, you can get answers to your questions and feel out what it’s like to work with us.
We’re motivated by the positive feedback satisfied clients leave behind. Here’s a sample of what some have shared:
We’re confident that at the conclusion of your rideshare accident case, you’ll feel similarly about our legal assistance.
Our team is intimately familiar with the financial recovery process, as evidenced by the millions of dollars we’ve recovered for injured people. Our case results include:
Will your case result in a similar settlement? Maybe. Maybe not. The facts of your collision, including the details of your injuries, will inform our legal strategy. While we can’t promise a specific outcome, we can promise to give your case the time and attention to detail it deserves.
Our founder, Attorney Zach Herschensohn, is a warm, reassuring presence to injured clients. However, he’s a bulldog when it comes to uncooperative insurers and combative lawyers. While you focus on recovering, our firm will fight tooth and nail for what you deserve. We aim to accomplish this by:
Rideshare accidents can involve multiple insurance policies: yours, the rideshare driver’s, and the rideshare company. Each insurance company may deflect liability, hoping to avoid paying for anything. This is where you could benefit from Herschensohn Law’s assistance. We intend to hold the liable insurer accountable for your losses by:
More than one insurer could be liable for your losses. While this could offer multiple avenues of seeking damages, it could complicate matters. You don’t have to worry about a single case-related obligation with Herschensohn Law on your side. Insurance companies see our firm’s name and know they’re in for a fight.
To hold another party accountable for your rideshare accident in Ellensburg, we must show how the at-fault party acted negligently. This task involves gathering evidence to show the four tenants of negligence:
The evidence we can use to support your case includes the police report, traffic camera footage, and eyewitness testimony.
Your settlement might include coverage for both economic and non-economic damages. Your economic damages are your financial losses, such as medical bills. Your non-economic damages include subjective losses that pertain to your quality of life, such as pain and suffering.
We want to resolve your case with the highest possible settlement, including damages such as:
We represent families who have lost loved ones in rideshare accidents. Our wrongful death team extends its deepest condolences if you’re in a similar situation. There’s no way to put a dollar value on your loved one’s life. Yet, financial recovery can offer closure and payment for funeral fees, end-of-life care costs, and pain and suffering.
Filing a rideshare accident claim comes with many obligations. However, with Herschensohn Law, you don’t have to worry about any of them. We:
We have dealt with many insurance companies in Washington State, from million-dollar corporations to mom-and-pop insurance agencies. We find that many insurance companies have no problem working with our team to help injured people. Yet, we also find that some insurance companies don’t play by the rules, and we fight back when that happens.

We have answers to your rideshare accident questions. You may wonder:
Herschensohn Law offers comprehensive legal help to severely injured claimants. We’ve recovered compensation for people after suffering:
As noted, we also advocate for families who have lost loved ones who suffered fatal injuries.
After the collision, you first start by filing a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance. Every motorist in Washington State must carry liability coverage. So, if the at-fault driver complies, this could offer a route to resolving your case.
However, if your damages exceed the liable insurance policy, Uber’s or Lyft’s insurance kicks in. Both offer third-party liability coverage, which includes:
Uber and Lyft also offer $1 million in comprehensive and collision coverage when accidents happen when a driver is completing a rideshare request.
We probably won’t have to sue Uber or Lyft to recover damages because most car accident claims settle through negotiations. Still, we have no qualms about filing a lawsuit if it could yield much-needed compensation.
The value of your case depends on many factors unique to your situation, including:
Our calculations account for your past, present, and future injury-related losses. That way, we know what constitutes a fair settlement offer when the insurer makes one.
