Lyft Accident Lawyer Temecula

The taxi used to be the one and only way to ride where you needed without a vehicle or a bus. New players have since entered the field of ridesharing such as Lyft. Lyft is one of the largest ridesharing companies in the US owning a massive 35% of ridesharing passengers, making taxis obsolete and bus stop passengers lesser. With a simple push of a button you can travel anywhere with your driver.

Lyft offers a convenient way to travel for both leisure and business. Sadly, Lyft is also responsible for serious injuries to pedestrians, passengers and motorists. And, because ride-sharing is still relatively new, the law surrounding these accidents is often quite complex.

If you or a loved one has recently been involved in a Lyft accident you may deserve compensation. Lyft drivers aren’t always covered by Lyft’s insurance policies because they are independent contractors and not company employees. This will leave who pays for your injuries up to the driver who may have limited coverage. We will fight for you to obtain insurance from Lyft, with a 98.5% success rate.

Our Temecula lyft accident attorneys at Mova Legal can help you better understand your legal rights and options in such cases. Call us today for a free consultation.

Understand How Lyft Insurance Works For Your Case

Lyft ensures three “periods” in which they will cover or not cover an accident. The period your Lyft driver is under will determine the insurance coverage in which Lyft will participate. There are several key things of which to be aware if you’ve been injured while riding with Lyft.

  • Lyft carries a ($1,000,000) One Million Dollar Policy in liability coverage if a Lyft driver has been involved in an accident with another vehicle or with a pedestrian or bike when in the course of driving a passenger or after he or she has been matched and the driver has accepted the passenger.
  • A driving period under Lyft is the stage in which the Lyft driver is acting upon during an accident.
      • Period 1: If the Lyft driver’s app is off and is involved in an accident, the Lyft driver will be liable using their own policy, with Lyft assuming no responsibility.
      • Period 2: If a Lyft driver has the app on and/or is en route to pick up a passenger and is involved in an accident then Lyft will provide coverage up to $100K for bodily injury and $25K for property damage.
      • Period 3: If the Lyft driver is carrying a passenger and is involved in an auto accident of an sort, Lyft claims to provide up to $1,000,000 coverage.
  • When you get a ride in a Lyft vehicle, you are in a car owned and maintained by the individual driver, not the company. It’s not always clear if the driver has been recently screened for drugs or alcohol or when the vehicle was last inspected. It is not always clear if your injuries will be covered by Lyft’s insurance.
  • The above coverage by Lyft often provide much of the victims compensation for their injuries, but without much regulation, Lyft often escapes paying what they claim. A Temecula Uber accident lawyer is needed to ensure this does not happen to you.
