Protecting the Rights of Clients Injured in Lyft Accidents
Many people use Lyft rideshare services in the Atlanta area, and many people earn extra money working as Lyft drivers. While these drivers must pass a background check and review of their driving record, they do not have to undergo any special training to become a Lyft driver. These drivers can be involved in traffic accidents like anyone else, and if you’re injured in a crash involving a Lyft vehicle, you need the help of a Lyft accident lawyer right away.
Types of Lyft Accidents
Lyft vehicles can crash in many different ways and for different reasons, including:
- The Lyft driver crashes into another vehicle
- Another driver crashes into the Lyft vehicle
- The Lyft driver hits a bicyclist or pedestrian
If another driver is to blame for your Lyft accident, that driver’s insurance should cover your losses, and you should discuss the claim with an experienced car accident lawyer. If the Lyft driver was at fault, the insurance process can be more complicated. Lyft drivers are required to have minimum insurance requirements, though Lyft also has a $1 million policy to cover injuries caused by drivers. This policy only provides coverage if a driver is picking up a passenger or driving a passenger, however. A skilled attorney can navigate the often confusing insurance claim process after a Lyft crash.
