Drivers for Uber and Lyft do not face much scrutiny from the companies they drive for. To become an Uber or Lyft driver in Spokane, one only needs to have a valid driver’s license, be 21 years of age, and get the vehicle inspected and approved. These drivers have no particular specialty training. In short, an Uber or Lyft driver is just as likely to cause a crash as any other driver on the roadway.
According to the Washington Department of Transportation, we know that there were nearly 4,400 total crashes within the city limits of Spokane during the latest reporting year of data available. Out of these incidents, they were more than 1,500 injury crashes reported.
The most complicated part of an accident involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle is dealing with insurance in the aftermath of the incident. Both companies handle accidents on a tiered basis concerning insurance.
