Morrow Lyft Accident Attorneys
Hopping in a Lyft is as convenient as it can be, but being injured in a Lyft accident is anything but. There are a variety of factors that complicate Lyft accidents, and if you’ve been injured you owe it to yourself and to your case to work closely with an experienced Lyft accident lawyer in Morrow.
Your Lyft Driver
The fact is that if you are injured in a Lyft accident, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that can complicate your claim. For instance:
- Your Lyft driver is an independent contractor and not an employee of Lyft, and this makes the issue of insurance that much more difficult.
- Driving is a job (either part-time or full-time) for your Lyft driver, but as an independent contractor, he or she is not a professional driver. This means he or she doesn’t require a special driver’s license and is not held to the same rigorous safety standards that commercial drivers are.
- If you’re injured by a negligent Lyft driver, Lyft’s insurance coverage will likely come into effect if the Lyft driver is on the app and has a passenger in play at the time; either Lyft or the driver’s insurance will be invoked if the driver is on the app but has no passengers at the time of the accident; and if the driver isn’t on the app at the time of the accident, insurance coverage remains the same as it is for any other car accident. It’s important to understand, however, that Lyft’s insurance coverage is not necessarily adequate to cover your losses in their entirety.
