Recovering Damages After a Long Island Lyft Accident
The compensation recoverable after a Lyft accident depends on the liable party(ies), as well as the Lyft driver’s status at the time of the accident. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, the following policies may apply:
- The Lyft driver’s personal insurance policy: This policy applies when the driver is not logged into the app.
- Lyft’s PIP insurance policy: Lyft provides $50,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage for occupants of the vehicle as well as bicyclists or pedestrians involved in the accident.
- Lyft’s liability insurance policy: If the Lyft driver caused the accident, Lyft’s $1.25 million liability policy covers injuries suffered by Lyft passengers and third parties including other drivers, their passengers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
- Another driver’s personal insurance policy: If a third-party driver caused the accident, you could recover compensation from that driver’s insurance policy as you would after a typical car accident.
We will file a claim with the appropriate policy and fight for the compensation you deserve. You might be entitled to compensation for the following types of damages:
- Medical treatment and related costs
- Ongoing care costs
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Repair or replacement of your damaged vehicle
- Replacement of other personal property
- Rental car fees
