Lyft Driver Accident Injuries and Workers Compensation Claims

One legal issue that is becoming more commonplace is private insurance companies refusing injury claims involving Lyft drivers. These accident claims are usually denied because the driver's auto accident insurance company asserts that their policyholder's personal car is being used for commercial purposes with Lyft, and this usage was not disclosed at the time the Lyft driver purchased or renewed their auto accident insurance policy. This legal problem can leave injured Lyft drivers, their passengers, and pedestrians without the insurance coverage they need to pay for their medical bills and other damages. 

Rideshare service coverages, workers' compensation law, responsibilities, and insurance law are complicated legal matters that necessitate legal representation. If you or a loved one is a Lyft driver who was harmed in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, call Montlick Injury Attorneys for your free consultation and talk with one of our experienced Lyft accident attorneys.

How Does Rideshare (Lyft) Accident Insurance Work?

Another serious legal issue concerning Lyft services is that Lyft does not provide separate auto accident insurance coverage for its drivers in many states. Moreover, private insurance companies usually try to avoid paying on Lyft accident injury claims because their policyholder did not disclose the fact they would be using their personal motor vehicle to provide a Lyft rideshare or delivery service. 

While Lyft drivers ought to purchase the appropriate business auto insurance coverage, most Lyft drivers do not purchase this type of car collision insurance coverage, putting themselves, their passengers, and pedestrians at risk. It is auto insurance coverage issues such as these that pose substantial legal and financial hardships on victims hurt or killed in rideshare accidents. This is especially true when there is no auto accident insurance coverage to pay the accident victims' claims. 

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a Lyft crash, our experienced Lyft Accident attorneys are here to help. We work hard and fight hard to recuperate the maximum amount of monetary compensation possible under state law for you or your loved one.

Legal Issues Surrounding Rideshare Services in the News

Lyft is the second largest rideshare business in the United States. Lyft's rideshare service permits users to use its app and "order" a Lyft driver instantly. Lyft passengers can also select the kind of motor vehicle they want and review a Lyft driver's rating prior to accepting the ride. Lyft drivers generally use their own private motor vehicles to pick up their passengers. As Lyft and other ridesharing comapnies grow in popularity, new legal issues involving injury claims, insurance gaps, workers' compensation issues, property damage, and low insurance coverage limits will arise. Passengers involved in Lyft crashes may also be at risk of not being adequately compensated for their injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other accident-related damages.

In one recent rideshare wrongful death case, an Uber driver struck three pedestrians who were walking down a street. The crash tragically took the life of a six-year-old girl. Uber attempted to avoid paying compensation to the victims by asserting the Lyft driver did not have any customers in r car at the time of the crash. However, the Uber driver was using the Uber app at the time of the collision, and the driver was also waiting to be dispatched to a new rideshare customer. The victim's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit stating that Uber ignored their driver's history of reckless driving. 

This rideshare accident case illustrates the troubling legal complexities that often surround rideshare company liability and insurance coverage matters. Also, most rideshare applications have a Terms of Service disclaimer that often requires rideshare passengers to agree that they will not sue the company in the event of a crash. In another rideshare crash with injuries, a passenger was injured and they sought monetary compensation from the rideshare's auto accident insurance company. However, the victim's accident claim was denied because the rider accepted the terms of use which included a promise not to file suit against the rideshare, and the driver was held solely liable.

Are Requirements for Lyft Drivers Too Lenient? 

Lyft is a revolutionary business concept that connects people who want to earn income using their privately-owned vehicles with rideshare customers. Although Lyft's service benefits society, rideshare services have also created complex legal issues. For example, some Lyft drivers are a danger to other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and their passengers. One substantial concern about rideshare services is that these companies have a terrible record concerning criminal background checks on their drivers. Most rideshare apps also do not require background checks on their riders, which puts Lyft drivers in danger. Rideshare companies do not require any safe driving training.
