Walton County Lyft Accident Attorney
Lyft has a lot to offer, but Lyft accidents are as dangerous as their associated claims are complicated. If a Lyft driver’s negligence leaves you injured, obtaining just compensation is paramount, and it is time to consult with an experienced Lyft accident attorney.
Your Lyft Claim
Your Lyft driver is an independent contractor and is not an actual employee of Lyft. This allows Lyft to evade considerable liability when Lyft accidents occur. Neither is your Lyft driver a professional driver – even though he or she works in a very similar capacity to professional taxi drivers. These facts can make Lyft accidents more likely and make the issue of insurance coverage in the event of Lyft accidents that much more complicated. Consider the following insurance basics as they relate to Lyft accidents:
- If the Lyft driver has a passenger or is on the way to pick up a Lyft passenger, Lyft’s insurance coverage is in place.
- If the Lyft driver is on the app but is waiting to be assigned to a passenger, Lyft’s coverage will not begin until the driver’s personal coverage is exhausted.
- If the Lyft driver is no longer on the app, the accident is no longer a Lyft accident, and it will proceed just like any other car accident claim would (even if the driver had just left the app when the accident occurred).
