Determining Liability in Atlanta Lyft Accidents
Determining who is liable after a car accident is an essential, but complex, process. Working with an experienced attorney who understands insurance policies as well as the laws surrounding rideshare accidents is crucial to protecting your rights. Some cases may be more straightforward than others, for example, if a driver was under the influence, failed to yield, or was speeding, it may be easier to determine their fault and hold them liable. However, it can be more tricky if a Lyft driver is involved in an accident due to a car malfunction, such as a mechanical failure. In that case, the manufacturer may be held responsible, rather than Lyft.
An experienced Lyft and Uber accident attorney in Atlanta, like those at Monge & Associates, can help you determine liability and build a strong claim to hold the responsible party accountable and get you the compensation you deserve.
Lyft Insurance Coverage
When you are involved in an accident with a Lyft rideshare driver in Atlanta, they have specific insurance that is designed to protect drivers and passengers alike. The amount of coverage offered by Lyft’s insurance policy depends on the status of the driver at the time of the accident.
If the driver had a passenger in the vehicle or was en route to pick up a passenger when the accident occurred, Lyft will provide:
- At least $1 million in third-party auto liability coverage
If the driver has the app on and is waiting for a ride request when the accident occurred, Lyft will provide:
- $50,000/person for bodily injury
- $100,000/accident for bodily injury
- $25,000/accident for property damage
If the driver’s Lyft app is off then Lyft does not provide coverage and the driver’s personal insurance will apply.
Available Compensation For Lyft Accidents
After being involved in an accident with a Lyft driver, you may face considerable financial hurdles due to your injuries and the damages to your property. However, when you file a claim, you can request compensation for several different categories of damages, including economic and non-economic losses. These damages may include:
- Medical costs
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earning potential
- Lost wages
- And more
In some rare cases, you may be eligible to receive punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the wrongdoer, and are only given in cases where the at-fault party was extremely reckless or acted maliciously.
