What is Lyft?
Lyft is a ridesharing service that operates in hundreds of cities across the United States. Lyft drivers use their personal cars to transport passengers who request transportation through mobile applications or online websites. Lyft has grown quickly, and along with this growth comes new challenges for riders and pedestrians alike. One area of concern is how ridesharing companies are expected to regulate safety within their fleets and what happens when an accident occurs.
What Should You Do After a Lyft Accident?
After being involved in a Lyft accident, you should first ensure that everyone is safe and have someone call 911 if necessary. If you are seriously injured or suspect your injuries will require medical attention, make sure to get the proper diagnosis before moving forward with legal action.
If you believe that someone else was at fault, rest assured that our firm will be by your side every step of the way as we fight for justice on your behalf. Seeking justice might involve filing insurance claims against individual drivers or the Lyft corporation.
Which insurance claims you file depends on the circumstances of your accident and who was at fault. Lyft drivers can be negligent and to blame, and this means their insurance should cover harm they caused. However, if a Lyft driver had an active ride at the time, Lyft’s corporate insurance policy can kick in, which increases coverage significantly. In some situations, a third-party driver will be liable, and their insurance should cover your losses.
If you have been involved in a car accident that occurred while using a rideshare service like Lyft or Uber, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately after seeking medical attention for your injuries. Our law firm offers free consultations to discuss how we may be able to help and to answer your questions.
