Rideshare services have changed how we get around. Today, people can simply request a ride on an app and ride to their destination in comfort and at a reasonable fee. However, the introduction of rideshare services such as Lyft has also resulted in an increase in accidents. A recent study revealed that fatal accidents in the country have increased by 4 percent since the introduction of rideshare app services. However, recovering compensation for Lyft accident claims is more complex than for other passenger vehicle accidents. You must have the guidance and representation of an experienced Philadelphia Lyft accident lawyer.

Liability for Lyft Accidents

One of the most complex aspects of recovering compensation for a Lyft accident is determining where liability lies. After the accident, it is necessary to file for compensation with the right insurance provider. However, various factors must be considered when determining which insurance company will be held liable.

The Lyft driver’s personal insurance policy

If the Lyft driver was responsible for the accident, you can seek compensation from their personal insurance policy. This is the case when the Lyft app was off and the driver was not logged in at the time of the accident.

The other driver’s insurance policy

If another driver was at-fault for the accident, you can pursue compensation by filing a claim against their personal insurance policy.

Lyft’s insurance policy

Lyft is required by law to provide its drivers with insurance coverage. However, the level of coverage available will depend on the status of the Lyft driver at the time of the accident. Lyft’s insurance cover is only available if the driver was logged into the app at the time of the accident. If the driver was logged in and actively waiting for requests from passengers, Lyft’s contingent insurance cover will be available. This means that Lyft’s insurance policy will cover what the driver’s insurance cover does not cover in the event of an underinsured or uninsured driver.

If the driver was logged into the app and en route to pick up a passenger or was already transporting a passenger at the time of the accident, Lyft’s $1 million insurance policy will be available.

Third parties

It is also possible to recover compensation from third parties such as a government entity responsible for maintaining the roads or the manufacturer of the faulty vehicle involved in the accident.
