Your Rights after a Lyft Crash
You can be involved in a Lyft accident in many situations, including when:
- You are a passenger in the Lyft
- You are a driver or passenger in another car
- You are riding your bicycle
- You are a pedestrian
Lyft drivers have no special training and no special driver’s license, and they regularly make mistakes on the road. The law requires Lyft drivers to carry a certain amount of insurance coverage, and also requires Lyft to provide coverage in certain situations. Determining which insurance claims to file can be complicated, though it is critical to file the right claims to ensure you receive compensation for your losses. Your losses may include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent injuries
