Holding Commercial Operators Accountable
In Oregon, commercial operators are required to carry insurance to protect their passengers in the event that a crash occurs. In addition to those laws, the City of Portland has enacted additional local regulations (Chapter 16.40) that are designed to protect passengers.
If you were injured as a passenger in a Uber/Lyft accident or you were injured as a passenger in a Portland taxi, you deserve full and fair compensation for the harm you suffered. Our Portland car accident lawyers will protect your rights. Do not make a statement to the responsible commercial operator or to their insurance company without first consulting with an experienced legal professional. These companies will not protect your best interests.
Of course, not all ridesharing/taxi accident claims involve passengers. If you were injured in an accident with one of these commercial passenger vehicles, and you were in another car or you were walking as a pedestrian, you should speak to a qualified attorney as soon as possible. Negligent passenger vehicle operators must be held legally accountable.
