Rideshare accidents are going to happen in Portland

There are thousands of rideshare vehicles in and around the Portland area. According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, there were 13,736 total crashes in Multnomah County during the latest reporting year of data available.

While we do not have exact numbers on how many rideshare accidents there were, we know they occur. Rideshare drivers are just like the rest of us. They have no particular driver training, and they use their personal vehicles.

The insurance available in the aftermath of a rideshare crash depends on whether or not the driver was on duty at the time of the incident. Major rideshare companies have varying insurance policies that change depending on whether or not a driver has a passenger.
