Issues that Lyft Insurance Coverage Presents 

When you are involved in a Lyft accident, it is your right to seek compensation for your damages. This is especially true when the accident occurred as a result of the negligence of another party. However, recovering compensation for a Lyft accident isn’t as straightforward as recovering compensation for other types of car accidents. There are various factors that need to be considered in order to determine who you can pursue compensation for and how much compensation you can recover. These include: 

  • Whether you are able to recover Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Benefits from your own car insurance 
  • Which party was at fault 
  • Whether the Lyft driver was on the clock or not, i.e., whether they were logged in to the app at the time of the accident 
  • Whether the Lyft driver was ferrying a passenger at the time of the accident 
  • Whether the accident was caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver 

Lyft drivers are not considered employees of the rideshare company. They are required to purchase personal car insurance to cover their vehicles. However, New York laws require Lyft and other rideshare companies to maintain commercial insurance policies that cover their drivers in the event of an accident while they are on the clock. Lyft’s commercial insurance policy works as follows: 

  • When the driver is not logged into the app or is driving for personal reasons: Lyft’s commercial insurance policy will not apply in this instance. If the accident was caused by the Lyft driver, then their personal car insurance policy will apply. 
  • When the app is on but the Lyft driver is not transporting a passenger: Lyft’s contingent liability coverage will apply in this case. This cover provides up to $50,000 per injured person, $100,000 per accident and $25,000 for damaged property. 
  • When the app is on and the Lyft driver is transporting a passenger: Lyft’s commercial liability policy will apply. This cover provides up to $1 million per accident. This is paid in addition to what the driver’s car insurance policy provides. 
  • When the app is on, the Lyft driver is transporting a passenger, and the accident is caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver: Lyft’s commercial liability policy will provide uninsured or underinsured coverage in this case. 

It is important to consult with an experienced Long Island Lyft accident lawyer to determine what your options are and to pursue maximum compensation for your damages.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our attorneys and staff are competent, compassionate, and committed to seeking the maximum fair and appropriate compensation for all of our clients. We fight to win, not to quickly settle and move on to the next case. Our firm will make sure that you are properly advised of all of your options while giving you the proper legal advice to make the right decision for yourself and your family. We are willing to go above and beyond to meet your expectations, whether it’s meeting with you after hours, on the weekends, at your home, in the hospital, or at the office. We will make ourselves available for you 24/7.

We have been dedicated to Personal Injury and helping our clients pursue justice for over 30 years.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:

Car Accidents

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.

Truck Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.

Motorcycle Accidents

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Premises Liability

An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.

Dog Bite

Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.

Slip and Fall

A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.

Construction Accidents

An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death

Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.

Medical Malpractice

When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.

What types of compensation can be received in a personal injury case?

There are several types of compensable damages that can be received including money for lost wages and career change, property damage compensation, health aids, and home rehabilitation to accommodate for the injuries sustained.

If a settlement can not be reached, a law firm will go ahead and commence a personal injury lawsuit, which simply means taking the at fault party to court.
