Lawrenceville Lyft Accident Attorney
Lyft and other rideshare companies have revolutionized the way we get around, and it’s unlikely that we’re going to be giving up the immense convenience of calling for a Lyft ride any time soon. Lyft accidents, however, can be uniquely complicated and require the unique experience of a dedicated Lyft accident lawyer in Lawrenceville.
The Lyft Company
Lyft drivers are not hired by the Lyft company itself but, instead, are contract workers who drive for Lyft. This fact changes how liability works when Lyft accidents occur, and while the Lyft company isn’t generally responsible for these accidents, its insurance coverage does come into play in the following ways:
- If the Lyft driver responsible for the accident that leaves you injured is on the Lyft app and has a passenger or is on his or her way to pick up a passenger, Lyft’s robust insurance coverage goes into effect.
- If the Lyft driver responsible for the accident that leaves you injured is on the Lyft app but has no passenger and has no passenger waiting to be picked up, Lyft’s coverage will take over where the driver’s individual insurance coverage leaves off.
- If the Lyft driver responsible for the accident that leaves you injured is not on the Lyft app, the driver’s individual policy will be solely responsible for covering your losses (just as it would in other car accidents for which the driver is at fault).
