Motorcycle Accidents Involving Lyft in Los Angeles
Get Your Deserved Compensation After a Lyft Motorcycle Accident
When a car, truck or SUV gets into an accident with a motorcycle, the rider usually is the one who suffers the worst injuries. This is true even when the four-wheeled vehicle is being driven by someone working for the ride-sharing company Lyft. Professional drivers can be as careless as anyone else when it comes to your safety as a rider.
At Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we work hard to secure maximum financial compensation for victims of motorcycle accidents, including incidents where a Lyft driver caused the wreck. If you were hit by a Lyft driver while riding, attorney Scott J. Corwin is prepared to represent you against the driver and their insurance company. He represents clients in Los Angeles and throughout California.
Two Lyft Motorcycle Accident Scenarios
Type 1: Struck by a Lyft Driver / Vehicle
The Lyft driver is negligent, collides with the moving or stopped biker and the injured victim is operating their motorcycle legally on the road. The Lyft company carries liability insurance, so the victim and their attorney pursue medical expenses and recovery from the rideshare company and driver. Most rideshare companies now carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance coverage.
Type 2: Motorcycle Collides with Stopped Lyft Vehicle
If the Lyft driver stops in a restricted portion of the road or fails to take adequate measures to safely drop off their fare, the Lyft / rideshare driver is negligent. This causes the motorcyclist to crash into the stopped vehicle or it’s car door (known as a “dooring”) and the motorcycle rider is seriously injured. Similar to the above, 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.
