Macon Ga Lyft Accident Attorney
If a Lyft driver leaves you injured in a car accident, you likely have all kinds of questions about how best to proceed. Lyft accidents include the additional layer of complication related to determining which insurance provider is responsible for covering your claim, but an experienced Macon Lyft accident attorney has the legal know-how to help.
The Insurance Provider
Lyft’s insurance coverage is solid, but it applies only in the following situations:
- The driver is on the Lyft app and has a passenger.
- The driver is on the Lyft app and is on the way to pick up a passenger.
If the driver is on the app but is in wait mode, Lyft’s coverage will take over at the point that the driver’s own policy limitations kick in. If the driver is no longer on the app, his or her own policy is the only available coverage.
A Note about the Insurance Provider
Regardless of which insurance provider is covering your claim, it’s important to recognize that it is in the business of turning a tidy profit and will do whatever it can to keep your settlement as low as possible. Be on the lookout for all the following common tactics:
- An early, lowball settlement offer
- A claim denial from the outset
- An artificially complicated and/or lengthy claims process
- An attempt to shift fault toward you and/or to deny the extent of your losses
