The Three Lyft Car Accidents Scenarios

Type 1: Struck by a Lyft Driver / Vehicle
The Lyft driver is negligent, and the injured victim is driving or a passenger in a separate vehicle, car, motorcycle, or is a pedestrian or bicyclist on the road. The Lyft company carries liability insurance so the victim and their attorney pursues medical expenses and recovery from the rideshare company and driver. Most rideshare companies now carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance coverage.

Type 2: Lyft Driver Crashes
The Lyft / rideshare driver is negligent, and the injured victim is a passenger inside of the rideshare vehicle. Once again, the Lyft company carries liability insurance so the victim and their attorney pursues medical expenses and recovery from the rideshare company and driver. Lyft and most rideshare companies now carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance coverage.

Type 3: Struck While Riding in a Lyft Vehicle
The injured victim is a paying passenger taking a Lyft and their car is hit by another vehicle and the rideshare driver is not at fault. As the injured victim is a passenger in the rideshare, the fault and claim is against the third-party vehicle. There are situations where the at-fault driver carries no insurance or is under-insured. Medical and financial recovery is still possible as most rideshare companies now carry $1,000,000 in uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM).

Who Pays When A Lyft Gets Into A Crash?

Despite a recent California Supreme Court ruling, Lyft drivers are not considered employees for purposes of on-the-job injuries. Nor is Lyft currently considered liable when one of its drivers injures someone else. This generally means that one or more drivers’ personal auto insurance will pay the damages.

Insurance companies try to avoid paying on claims, no matter what the facts were. Scott Corwin has litigated thousands of personal injury cases and he knows how to use the law to support his clients’ claims. He will make sure you get treated fairly and get compensation for your injuries and the damage to your vehicle.
