Lyft Accident Attorneys

Along with the convenience of using the Lyft app for transportation, passengers naturally expect each trip to be safe. When a crash occurs, the unexpected experience can be particularly jarring to an injured passenger. The Lyft accident attorneys at Ostroff Injury Law can help.

Simply put, you deserve compensation if you suffered injuries in a Lyft accident. However, obtaining full compensation isn’t simple.

Does Lyft Provide Drivers with Insurance Coverage?

Lyft is not a taxi service. The vehicles belong to the drivers, who must carry personal vehicle accident insurance. Lyft’s insurance policy does offer drivers four types of additional coverage, which are typically in effect from the time a driver accepts a request until the ride has ended in the app.

Lyft’s insurance coverage is as follows:

  • Contingent liability while the driver is waiting for a ride request with “driver mode” on
  • Primary automobile liability
  • Contingent comprehensive and collision
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM)

Lyft offers primary liability insurance with a $1 million coverage limit per accident. If the app’s “driver mode” is off and an accident occurs, a driver must depend on his or her personal insurance policy for coverage.

Obtaining Compensation for Injuries

Despite Lyft drivers’ insurance coverage, liability issues can still arise when an accident occurs. Unfortunately, it’s often the injured victim who bears the burden.

That’s where our Lyft accident attorneys come in. We’re not afraid to go up against businesses who let people get hurt. In fact, we have stood up to major transportation companies like Greyhound, and we do not back down.

Many questions naturally arise after a Lyft crash. Who is responsible for the accident? If the victim was riding in a Lyft, can he or she obtain compensation for medical bills and other related expenses? Speaking with an experienced law firm right away can clear up these questions and more. Our lawyers are committed to protecting injured victims’ rights, putting them at ease, and keeping them well informed.

In addition to helping injured Lyft passengers, our attorneys can also represent pedestrians, bicyclists, and other drivers who were injured in crashes with Lyft vehicles.
