Lyft Accident Attorneys in Wisconsin
As more and more drivers utilize 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
If You Were INJURED It IS About The Money.®
Can You Sue a Lyft Driver?
Yes, you can sue a Lyft Driver. 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. Understanding Lyft’s insurance policy is the difference between a million dollar payout, and no payout.
Understanding Lyft’s Insurance Policy
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
It’s important to note that 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.
Lyft Passenger Car Accident Coverage
As a Lyft passenger involved in an accident, there is a $1,000,000 policy on the line. Lyft is no different than any other business. It will fight to keep costs low, especially insurance claims. Ridesharing apps like Uber have even blamed passengers for the crash to avoid a payout. You need a tough law firm like Warshafsky Law Offices if you want the compensation you deserve.
