Forest Park Lyft Accident Attorney

Forest Park Lyft Accident Attorney

If you have been injured by a Lyft driver’s negligence, you may be overwhelmed by the corporate giant’s involvement. The fact is, however, that Lyft is required by law to carry robust coverage for its drivers – but there are sticking points involved. Lyft accidents claims are complicated, but an experienced Forest Park Lyft accident attorney has got you covered.

The Lyft App

If you’re injured by a Lyft driver’s negligence, his or her involvement with the Lyft app at the time will play a critical role in your claim. If you are required to deliver a package in your capacity as an employee, you’re covered by your employer’s insurance policy the entire time you’re on the delivery run. Lyft drivers, however, are only Lyft employees when they are on the app. This means that, from the time they drop off a passenger and toggle off the app to drive home, their connection to Lyft is severed, and any accidents that ensue are covered by their own policies.

Lyft Coverage

Lyft’s insurance coverage applies in the following ways:

  • If the Lyft driver who causes you to be injured is on the Lyft app and has a Lyft passenger or is on the way to pick up a Lyft passenger, Lyft’s robust coverage can apply.
  • If the Lyft driver who causes you to be injured is on the Lyft app but is waiting for a passenger to be directed his or her way, Lyft’s coverage will come into play at the point that the driver’s own policy is exhausted.
