Los Angeles Lyft Accident Attorney

Experienced Legal Team Handling Rideshare Accident Cases

Lack of regulation and rapid growth have made ridesharing one of the most successful and most legally murky new industries in recent years. Although people love ridesharing apps like Lyft for their convenience and affordability, making sure these companies are operating ethically can be a challenge—especially when it comes to accidents.

Lyft accidents may affect drivers, riders, or pedestrians. If you have been injured in a Lyft accident, you should consider hiring a Los Angeles Lyft accident attorney before talking to your insurance provider or dealing with the company directly. An experienced rideshare lawyer will advocate for you in court, and work to get the monetary compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

A Rise in Accidents

A new study from the University of Chicago and Rice University found that accident rates in the U.S. have climbed as much as 2-3% since 2011, thanks to the rise of ridesharing companies. Research was gathered by looking at accidents in cities where services like Lyft were present and comparing accident rates relative to miles traveled. The report concludes that the amount of time drivers for companies like Lyft spend in their cars, on average, is increasing congestion rates and leading to roughly 1,100 more auto-related fatalities per year.

What This Means for Accident Victims

Lyft ensures all of their drivers for $1 million through York Risk Services Group. As a result, it may be possible to seek greater damages from the company, and seek complete compensation for injuries, repair costs, loss of income, or any other pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of the accident.

Parties entitled to damages in a Lyft accident may include:

  • A motorist or passenger injured in a collision where a Lyft driver is at fault;
  • A Lyft driver inured in a collision with another motorist where said motorist is at fault;
  • A Lyft passenger injured in any kind of collision, regardless of who was at fault; or
  • A pedestrian injured in any kind of Lyft-related collision.

Handling Insurance

Lyft-related incidents where no injury occurred can be resolved through insurance companies, though it is still a good idea to seek legal representation to negotiate the best outcome. Saying the wrong thing to an adjuster can not only hurt your case, cost you a lot of money. Having an attorney guide you through the process may help you avoid a reduction in coverage, or an increase in rates.

What Lyft Passengers Need to Know

While Lyft’s insurance policies may seem like they are designed to protect riders in case of an accident, they’re really just designed to protect the company. This is why it’s advisable to hire a lawyer in case you get into an accident while in a Lyft, and to document the severity of your injuries swiftly and thoroughly. The quicker you act and the better prepared you are, the greater chance that a lawyer will be able to argue on behalf of a large settlement in court.

What Pedestrians Need to Know

Due to a tragic case from 2011, in which a driver killed a six-year-old girl, rideshare companies have a legal precedent forcing them to settle in cases involving pedestrians. A skilled Lyft accident attorney will be able to use this precedent to argue negligence on your behalf and work to secure the largest settlement possible.
