Lyft accident attorneys in Wisconsin Insurance companies offer larger settlements to law firms who win in court.
As 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.
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

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:
Injury compensation for drivers w/o an accepted ride
