What to Know About Partnering With Our Rideshare Accident Lawyers

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: 

Management of All Case-Related Deadlines 

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. 

Help on a Contingency-Fee Basis 

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 finance your case’s obligations, such as its filing and consulting costs. 
  • You pay nothing out of pocket to secure our help. 
  • Our attorney’s fees come from your settlement—again, never from your pocket. 

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. 

An Advocate Backed by Countless Five-Star Reviews 

We’re motivated by the positive feedback satisfied clients leave behind. Here’s a sample of what some have shared: 

  • “Zach and his team performed beyond my expectations! I couldn’t have had a better firm in my corner!” ––Jon 
  • “This was such a great experience.” ––Boris 
  • “Herschensohn Law worked by my side for almost four years when I was in an auto accident and were outstanding in everything they did! They went above and beyond to make my lawsuit as easy and stress free as possible.” ––Reann 

We’re confident that at the conclusion of your rideshare accident case, you’ll feel similarly about our legal assistance. 

Support From Our Results-Driven Team 

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: 

  • $1.2 million. We were honored when a grieving family came to us with their wrongful death case. Our attorneys evaluated the circumstances of the fatal truck accident and secured financial justice. 
  • $700k. A collision with a commercial vehicle caused our client to suffer a torn rotator cuff. We held the negligent party accountable for his losses. 
  • $450k. A drunk driver caused a collision that caused our client to suffer a broken jaw and a torn colon. We secured the best possible outcome. 

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. 

Services Offered by Our Ellensburg Rideshare Accident Lawyers

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: 

Evaluating Your Financial Recovery Options 

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: 

  • Keeping track of all communications, so the claims adjuster can’t give conflicting information 
  • Reviewing the liable policy 
  • Handling all case-related communications 
  • Protecting you from bad faith insurance practices 

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. 

Proving Negligence 

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: 

  • Duty of care. An involved party (such as a motorist) had an obligation to drive with caution. 
  • Breach of duty. One of the involved parties failed to uphold or disregarded this obligation. 
  • Causation. The at-fault party’s negligence caused your rideshare accident. 
  • Damages. Because you suffered injuries in the collision, you have damages, such as medical bills and lost income. 

The evidence we can use to support your case includes the police report, traffic camera footage, and eyewitness testimony. 

Calculating Your Losses 

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: 

  • Healthcare expenses
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Lost wages, tips, bonuses, and commissions 
  • Loss of future earning capacity 
  • Emotional trauma 
  • Scarring and disfigurement 
  • Anything you spent out of pocket 
  • Property damage expenses 

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 Your Claim 

Filing a rideshare accident claim comes with many obligations. However, with Herschensohn Law, you don’t have to worry about any of them. We: 

  • File your claim within the prescribed deadline
  • Send your demand letter
  • Negotiate with the claims adjuster 
  • Demonstrate your case’s required elements 

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. 

People we’ve helped

Frequently Asked Questions About Rideshare Accident Cases in Ellensburg

We have answers to your rideshare accident questions. You may wonder: 

What Injuries Allow Me to File a Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit? 

Herschensohn Law offers comprehensive legal help to severely injured claimants. We’ve recovered compensation for people after suffering: 

  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Avulsions
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • The loss of one or more limb 
  • The loss of one or more senses (such as your sight or hearing)

As noted, we also advocate for families who have lost loved ones who suffered fatal injuries. 

What Are My Financial Recovery Options After a Rideshare Accident?

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: 

  • $50,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $100,000 in bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 in property damage per incident 

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. 

How Much Can I Get Through a Claim or Lawsuit?

The value of your case depends on many factors unique to your situation, including: 

  • The nature of your condition
  • The parties involved
  • The cause of the accident
  • Your role in the collision (for instance, whether you were hurt as a motorist or pedestrian) 
  • The liable insurance policy 

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.
