With the rapid rise of ridesharing services, companies like Lyft and Uber make travel around town easier than ever, and give thousands of people a new opportunity to create a new income stream. There is no doubt that this service is extremely valuable, convenient, and even enjoyable. But this service also gives rise to new problems that stem from ridesharing. With more Lyft vehicles on the road, there is also a rise in people injured in a Lyft accident.
Lyft Heavily Insures Their Drivers
Lyft is a major company now worth over $5 billion. They insure their drivers carrying passengers for at least $1 million. This includes liability insurance as well as coverage for uninsured or underinsured motorists.
Most drivers on the road are not covered for more than $15,000. This makes the level of insurance Lyft provides their drivers much more substantial than an ordinary motorist. It also means that those injured in a Lyft accident can gain significant compensation. This can cover medical expenses and bills, pain and suffering, as well as lost income opportunities.
Are You Entitled To Compensation for a Lyft Accident Injury?
If you suffer an injury from a Lyft accident, you may have an opportunity to obtain compensation. Consider the following circumstances:
- If an accident occurs where the Lyft driver is at fault and a driver or passenger is injured.
- A Lyft driver suffers an injury where another driver is at fault.
- A passenger suffers an injury in a Lyft vehicle, no matter which driver is at fault
