Los Angeles Lyft Accident Attorney

Lyft Accident Lawyer Los Angeles

Taxicabs, although not completely extinct, have tremendous competition with ridesharing apps like Lyft.

As rideshare vehicles are independent of Lyft, accidents involving drivers get much hairier for at-fault drivers than the regular taxicab or vehicle accidents.

Even though many regular vehicle insurers like Allstate and State Farm now including special coverage for ridesharing purposes, many more have not amended their policy coverage to include app-based rides. Compass Law Group, PC, the Los Angeles Lyft accident attorneys who know ridesharing laws best, can help injured persons navigate complex laws surrounding tech-based cab services.

Liabilities, Suits And Lyft

Flexible hours. An extra boost in household earnings. These are two main reasons ridesharing took off and may continue to make taxicabs scramble to remain profitable. When passengers are injured during their rideshare, questions of liability, venue of suits and what Lyft’s involvement arises. So, let’s clear confusion by explaining these three areas:

  • Liabilities: Lyft drivers carry an impressive $1 million in liability coverage which activates when the ride is booked and is relieved when passenger exits vehicle. During each ride, Lyft’s liability blanket replaces personal insurance carried by the driver, which makes sense as most bodily injury limits are a paltry $15,000 to $30,000.
  • Suits: Venue for suits remains unchanged. If you’re injured in Los Angeles, Lyft cannot request a change of venue to one better suited to their legal defense. Compass Law Group, PC will aggressively fight any attempt to remove cases out of our court, although any federal laws which were broken may merit removal to a U.S. District Court.
  • Lyft: As drivers aren’t technically employees of Lyft, the company holds themselves harmless when accidents occur. Determining whether Lyft has any culpability in your personal injury takes deep investigating which our Los Angeles Lyft accident attorneys are capable of handling.

Lyft puts nearly all collision liability into the hands of their supposedly vetted drivers. Lyft doesn’t have methods of monitoring its drivers for alcohol impairment, drug usage or other illegal activities which may detriment passenger safety. With so many variables and complex laws to navigate, we suggest any accident victims unsure of their rights should immediately Contact us.

We Handle Ridesharing Claims

Honestly, what type of vehicle you’re in or under what premise the vehicle may be operating makes little difference when accidents occur. All we must prove is driver negligence regardless of which vehicle is at fault. In the rare case, two ridesharing vehicles crash into each other, serious problems may arise for both drivers and the passenger injured. Accidents, where technology served some purpose, are difficult for laypersons to navigate.

Don’t attempt litigation without proper representation. Lyft’s liability policy will mean corporate attorneys will get involved, not to mention a driver’s personal insurance company may rear their head in dismay.

Compass Law Group, PC are the Los Angeles Lyft accident attorneys chosen by people who mean business and expect nothing but the best. If your ridesharing driver was involved in a car collision and you were injured, do not hesitate to call us immediately.
