If you’ve been hurt in a Lyft accident, you likely have unpaid hospital bills. On top of that, you have future treatment costs, property damage, and are missing out on income while you heal. A personal injury claim can help you recover these losses, so it’s important to look into all available sources of compensation.
Lyft provides commercial liability insurance for its drivers, but only under certain circumstances. Review the table below to determine what insurance coverage might be available for your specific accident scenario:
Who was at-fault for your accident is determined by a number of factors.
The biggest one is the answer to this question: did someone’s actions constitute a breach in their duty of care? A breach can consist of a failure to follow traffic laws or to act as a “reasonable person” exercising “reasonable care” would.
If you were hurt in an accident where you were a passenger and your Lyft vehicle was the only vehicle involved, then chances are high that your driver is at-fault, unless there was extreme weather or other extraordinary circumstances.
If you were hurt in an accident involving another vehicle — either as a passenger or someone else on the road — then who is at fault is determined by each party’s contribution to the circumstances of the accident. If the Lyft driver is solely at-fault, then they pay 100% of damages. But if other parties share fault, then they will split damages according to their portion of fault.
Hiring an experienced Lyft accident lawyer can help you examine the matter of fault and determine which party or parties should be held liable. Your attorney can also help you counter the strategies used to reduce or deny liability, including when you’re being accused of contributing fault to the collision.
Your attorney will also help you gather evidence, including evidence of the total costs of your damages. By examining your medical records, discharge papers, and billing invoices as well as your monthly income statements, your lawyer can calculate the entire cost of damages resulting from the collision.
