Clayton County Lyft Accident Attorney
Heading out in a Lyft relieves you of all the hassles and responsibilities of driving yourself. If you’re injured in a Lyft accident, however, you’re likely facing a complicated claims process ahead, and you are well-advised to have an experienced Clayton County Lyft accident lawyer on your side.
The Accident Claim
If you’ve been injured in a Lyft accident, your claim will proceed according to the circumstances involved. Consider the following scenarios:
- If you are injured as a passenger in a Lyft or are injured in another vehicle as a result of a Lyft driver’s negligence, your accident claim will proceed through Lyft’s insurance coverage as long as the Lyft driver in question had a passenger or was on the way to pick up a passenger. In other words, as long as he or she was fully engaged with Lyft-related work.
- If, on the other hand, you are injured in another vehicle as a result of a Lyft driver’s negligence, but he or she has no passenger at the time (and no one was waiting for his or her services), your Lyft accident claim will likely proceed through the Lyft driver’s personal insurance policy, and if this does not cover the full extent of your damages, the remaining will proceed through Lyft’s coverage.
- If the Lyft driver isn’t on the app, even if he or she just happened to momentarily toggle off, the driver’s personal coverage applies just as it would in any other car accident claim.
