Lyft Lawyer

Rideshare companies like Lyft bring a lot of advantages to people. If they’re going out for the night, they don’t have to worry about driving. They save time and money because you no longer have to worry about searching for a parking space and then paying for it. And it’s as easy as pressing a button on your phone to get a ride. But when a car accident happens, the insurance part can be confusing. In these situations, a Lyft accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you need.

Lyft Accident Scenarios

Auto accidents take multiple shapes and forms depending on who is involved. If you were hurt in an accident involving a Lyft driver, understanding the circumstances surrounding the crash will play a significant role in how your claim goes.

A Passenger in a Lyft Accident Caused by Their Driver

When you call on a Lyft driver for a ride, you are entrusting them with your safety. You expect the driver to obey all traffic laws and exercise caution. If your driver fails to do so and the result is a collision that leaves you injured. You have the legal right to seek reimbursement for the damages associated with the accident, including your medical bills and lost wages. These can be recovered from your own insurance policy, as well as Lyft’s.

A Passenger in a Lyft Hit by Someone Else

If you were using a Lyft while it was struck by another vehicle, you can take legal action. Compensation can be sought from their insurance company, the negligent driver’s insurance company, or, if necessary, Lyft’s insurance policy. It’s important to remember that the Lyft driver doesn’t need to be the one at fault for the accident for passengers to reclaim what they’ve lost.

A Driver Hit by a Lyft Driver

Accidents between motor vehicles are an everyday occurrence. As the popularity of rideshare services continues to grow, the numbers of accidents involving their drivers continue to increase. Drivers who are hit by Lyft drivers are covered, just like passengers, by the company’s insurance policy. Victims are entitled to compensation for their injuries from their own insurance company first, and then from Lyft’s policy, in the event their policy is inadequate.

A Pedestrian Hit by Lyft Driver

One of the most dangerous rideshare accidents involves a Lyft driver striking a pedestrian. A moving vehicle can cause catastrophic injuries to a person. Depending on the circumstances, the pedestrian may be entitled to sue the driver or the company for their injuries and suffering. This depends on the right-of-way laws, which vary depending on the state. Your Lyft accident lawyer will be able to determine which laws apply to your case.
