What Happens If You Get In An Accident In A Lyft?
Lyft car services have revolutionized the way we get around. However, just like any other mode of transportation, there are risks involved. Getting in an accident while riding in a Lyft can be a stressful situation. At the Law Office Of Donald W. Bedell, our attorneys are dedicated to being strong advocates for people who were injured in motor vehicle accidents. We help clients in the Brick and Toms River, New Jersey, areas take control of their situation and work to get the compensation they deserve.
We know that every year thousands of people are injured on the New Jersey roads. If you are injured in a Lyft accident, we want to help you recover damages to get your life back on track, whether you have piles of medical bills, lost wages or pain and suffering. We will work day in and day out until we get the best possible outcome for you and your case.
What Is Lyft’s Accident Policy?
Lyft has a very clear policy of what to do if you were in an accident.
- Call 911
- Check for injuries
- Get the information of everyone involved
- Relay this information to Lyft
After the accident is when the situation can get murky. Lyft has a trust and safety team that will reach out to people involved in the accident and explain to them the insurance options. Lyft provides up to 1 million dollars for compensation and $50,000 per personal injury claim. If this is not enough to cover your injuries, you may be able to recover compensation for the Lyft driver or the other driver depending on who was at fault.
Insurance companies do not always have your best interests in mind, so it is important you have a lawyer by your side who is willing to fight for you after a car accident. Our number one goal is to get you the compensation you deserve, and we will fight for you both in and out of court.
