Macon Lyft Accident Attorney

Macon Lyft Accident Attorney

Lyft and other rideshare companies like it are unbeatable when it comes to convenience, but if you are injured by a Lyft driver’s negligence, it can make your accident claim that much more complicated. Better understanding how Lyft’s insurance coverage applies can help you handle your Lyft claim more ably, but the most important step you can take toward this end is consulting with an experienced Macon Lyft accident attorney as soon after the accident as possible.

How Lyft’s Insurance Coverage Breaks Down

Lyft’s insurance coverage breaks down in the following primary ways:

  • If the Lyft driver who causes you to be injured is in full Lyft-driver mode, which means that he or she either has a Lyft passenger or is en route to pick one up, Lyft has its own comprehensive insurance coverage that will cover your claim.
  • If the Lyft driver is on the Lyft app but is in that gray area in which he or she is simply waiting for a fare to be assigned, Lyft’s coverage may still apply, but it will not kick in until after the driver’s own coverage reaches an end.
  • If the Lyft driver is no longer on the app – even if he or she has toggled off only temporarily – the driver’s own car insurance policy is responsible for covering your claim.
