Lyft Accident Attorneys in Wisconsin

Uber Accident Attorneys MilwaukeeAs more and more drivers use ridesharing apps like Lyft and Uber, it’s important to know your rights in the event of an accident. Lyft does provide car accident coverage for their drivers, but coverage is extremely limited. Lyft is a business like any other and will do everything possible to avoid paying the full value of your claim. Depending on the circumstances of the crash the Lyft driver’s personal insurance may be liable for part or all of the claim.

Whether you are:

  • A Lyft driver or passenger
  • A driver or passenger of another car
  • A pedestrian or cyclist hit by a Lyft vehicle

6 Wisconsin Car Accident Laws with a HUGE Impact on Your Claim

Can You Sue a Lyft Driver for an Accident?

Yes, you can sue a Lyft Driver with the help of a Milwaukee car accident attorney. The compensation you receive will vary depending on a number of factors. Lyft and Uber both have very complex insurance policies which offer zero, partial or total coverage depending on the driver’s status and personal insurance policy. The fact that Lyft drivers are legally "independent contractors" instead of employees adds to the complexity. Understanding Lyft’s insurance policy is the difference between a million dollar payout, and no payout. We'll ensure all your rights as a Lyft passenger weren't being compromised. Rights include being matched with a driver who:

  • Follows all rules of the road
  • Is alcohol- and drug-free
  • Has undergone a background check
  • Is undistracted

Our car accident lawyers will help you get the coverage you deserve. We'll help you sue for:

  • Pain & suffering
  • Disability
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Mental anguish

Will Lyft's Insurance Policy Pay for My Car Accident?

While Uber insurance does not cover the driver if they have not accepted a fare, Lyft offers contingent liability coverage if the driver’s personal insurance does not cover them. A Lyft driver’s insurance will change depending on their status.

  • Lyft drivers are covered by their personal insurance if the app is off
  • Lyft drivers are covered up to $100,000 per accident when the app is running
  • Lyft drivers have up to $1,000,000 in coverage while they have a fare

These insurance policies are only in effect if the driver’s personal policy does not cover them. Lyft, like Uber, will also fight this insurance payout at all costs.

It’s important to note that Lyft's contingent liability and contingent collision coverage means it will only be available if the driver carries those policies on their personal policy. Without rideshare-specific coverage, your insurance company will likely deny the claim and cancel the policy. The following insurance companies are now introducing full rideshare coverage in Wisconsin:
