How Lyft Rideshare Drivers Liability Insurance Works
Ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft must carry liability insurance. If you or your loved one was injured while the driver was on the app (traveling to pick up passengers or transporting passengers), they are covered by Lyft’s $1 million liability coverage. This coverage begins from the time the Lyft driver accepts your ride request until the driver completes the transaction on the app or the ride is over, whichever comes last.
If the rideshare driver was on the app and waiting for a ride request, they are covered by $50,000 per person / $100,000 per accident in bodily injury liability and $25,000 in property damage liability.
If the Lyft driver was off the app, a personal injury lawyer with Oresky & Associates, pllc, can help you seek compensation from the driver’s personal automobile insurance.
Why We Suggest Talking to an Attorney First
An insurance adjuster from Lyft or the driver’s insurance company may contact you after the accident. It is in your best interest to talk to a Lyft accident lawyer before you make any statement to the insurance adjuster. You may think that the adjuster is simply collecting data, but they may use this information to avoid exposure to damages.
We suggest that you politely decline to speak to the insurance adjuster until you have the chance to talk to a Lyft accident attorney.
