Options for Filing a Claim for a Lyft Accident
Accidents involving Lyft drivers present various complexities. One of the biggest complications is the result of Lyft stating that their drivers are independent contractors and not actual employees of the company. This begs the question of who to hold liable for your accident. Attorney Drew Page, a knowledgeable Virginia Lyft accident lawyer, will review the circumstances of your accident to determine the liable parties.
You were involved in an accident with a Lyft driver that was not transporting a passenger
Lyft’s insurance coverage only applies to drivers that are logged into the app. If the driver was logged into the app and waiting for a request or en route to picking up an app user, Lyft’s car insurance will apply. However, if the driver was not logged into the app, you will have to make a claim against the driver’s personal car insurance.
You were involved in an accident with a Lyft driver that was transporting a passenger
Lyft’s insurance policy applies when the Lyft driver is logged into the app and is transporting a passenger. In this case, you will have the option of filing a personal injury claim against your own personal car insurance policy. If the damages exceed your insurance policy’s coverage, you can then file for compensation from the Lyft driver’s personal car insurance policy. Your third claim will be against Lyft’s comprehensive insurance policy.
You were a Lyft passenger at the time of the accident
If you were a Lyft passenger at the time of the accident, you will have several options to seek compensation for your damages. If the accident was the fault of another motorist, you can file a claim against the insurance policy. If the other motorist is uninsured or underinsured, you can make a claim against Lyft’s insurance policy.
If the accident was caused by the Lyft driver, you can make a claim against the Lyft driver’s personal car insurance. If the Lyft driver is underinsured or if the damages exceed the cover available from the Lyft driver’s personal car insurance, you can make a claim against Lyft’s car insurance.
