How Lyft Accident Claims Work
Lyft provides insurance coverage for its drivers in certain circumstances. A personal injury claim always depends upon who is at fault for the car accident. Generally, the at-fault driver’s insurance provides the primary liability coverage for a personal injury claim.
However, a Lyft driver may have individual insurance and also Lyft-provided insurance. Determining which insurance policy may apply can be a complicated matter. Call our car accident lawyers for a no-obligation consultation. (281) 587-1111!
Worse, insurance companies often fight over who must provide liability or UIM coverage when there is more than one policy that may apply. If you have been injured severely in a Lyft accident, you will need to consult an experienced attorney handling Lyft personal injury claims. The Lyft accident lawyers in Houston at Baumgartner Law Firm help people injured in all types of Rideshare, Uber, and Lyft wrecks.
Lyft Car Accident Situations
You are a passenger in a Lyft vehicle, and the other car is at fault.
Because you are a passenger determining which insurance policy may apply and each insurance policy is a critical step when your injuries are severe, the driver’s insurance policy would be the primary source of liability coverage.
If the policy limits for the negligent driver are insufficient or an uninsured driver hits you, your insurance policy on your car may provide coverage. The Lyft underinsured, uninsured motorist coverage may also be helpful. Talking with an attorney experienced in Lyft coverage issues can help clarify the possibilities.
You are a Passenger in a Lyft Vehicle When the Crash Occurred
The Lyft commercial insurance policy should be applicable. Lyft provides primary liability insurance for the time the ride has been accepted until the wind has ended, according to the app. The left commercial policy offers one million in coverage per accident.
This would cover all persons injured in the accident caused by the negligence of the Lyft driver. Your own insurance coverage may also provide benefits to cover some of your damages.
The other driver’s insurance company would be responsible for your damages if the Lyft Driver were not at fault. Lyft and your auto policy may provide extra UIM or UM insurance coverage.

If the Accident Involving a Lyft Driver is Fatal
In Texas, persons entitled to bring a wrongful death case include the deceased’s parents, spouses, and children. The damages available to family members relate to their relationship with the deceased.
Hiring a wrongful death attorney should always be done with a fatal accident. If the deceased initially survived, a survival claim can be brought by the estate for the damages that the deceased suffered before passing. These damages include pain and suffering, medical bills, funeral expenses, and other personal injury damages.
In all serious injury or fatal accidents, an attorney should be consulted.
How to Find the Best Attorney for a Lyft Accident?
Lyft car accident cases are more complex than an average automobile injury accident. The available insurance coverage can be a significant issue because of the insurance issues and the difference between commercial policies and the minimum policies for liability in Texas.
Find a lawyer with insurance coverage expertise!
To find the best lawyer for someone injured in an accident with a Lyft driver, look for an attorney skilled in insurance coverage issues and only handles personal injury clients. Doing some homework on the attorneys you are considering before retaining one is helpful.
Look for a lawyer for Lyft with legitimate reviews
Online reviews can be a source of information if former clients do them. If you see a lawyer for Lyft accidents with hundreds of online reviews, question whether the reviews are all previous clients and, if so, if you want to be represented by such a high-volume law firm.
The more cases a law firm handles, the more likely you will be a number and not a person to them.
Require an experienced attorney, not an “associate,” to handle your case!
Also, it makes an enormous difference in who is doing the work on your claim. Will it be a skilled and experienced attorney or an inexperienced associate learning on the job? One common scenario is that the partner signs up and “monitors” the file when, in reality, an associate handles the case from start to finish with little to no involvement by the partner.
Unfortunately, who does the work on your case matters? Is your case going to be worked by an associate or paralegal, or would it be an attorney whom you know by first name?
Read peer-reviewed ratings
Next, you may consider reviewing the peer review ratings of the attorney and determine who might best fit your injury case. Be mindful that many awards have a financial relationship with the awarding company. Sites like Martindale.com are a good place to start because the rankings are based on other attorneys’ input, not pay!
Make sure you are comfortable with the attorney before you sign up!
Finally, ensure you are comfortable with the attorney you are considering and feel good after meeting with them in person. Changing attorneys can always be done, but it is complex and can cost you more.
It is much better to do your homework before you hire an attorney and get the best attorney rather than realizing that you have the wrong one after they have worked on the case.
