Lyft Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles, CA
Our Lyft Car Accident Attorneys Will Fight For You
In recent years, ridesharing services have become increasingly popular, with most of the market divided between the companies Uber and Lyft. Lyft drivers are expected to obey all the same traffic laws as any other driver in California, and their passengers should expect that their driver will be someone qualified to transport them to their destination safely. Sadly, background checks do not always ensure Lyft drivers are safe drivers, and it’s their passengers and other drivers on the road who may suffer for it.
The issue of insurance and liability for rideshare drivers has been muddy since the phenomenon began, and it continues to be problematic to this day. If you’ve been injured while riding in a Lyft vehicle or in an accident caused by a Lyft driver, it’s a good idea to contact an attorney who is up to date on the current rideshare liability laws.

Lyft Drivers and Insurance
Lyft drivers are required to have insurance coverage that meets or exceeds state minimums. In addition, Lyft provides coverage for drivers who are carrying passengers or going to pick up passengers. Lyft does not, however, provide coverage while the driver has the Lyft app turned on and is waiting for a ride request. During this period, the driver’s personal insurance policy is supposed to cover them. But, many insurance companies will drop a driver if they find out they are using their personal vehicle to drive commercially. This can leave both the driver and the injured party completely uncovered. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and will use any excuse they can find to deny coverage and avoid a payout. Denial of coverage can leave an injury victim with mounting medical bills and lost wages from missed work.
