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.
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 is arise. So, let’s clear confusion by explaining these three areas:
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.
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 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.
