Determining insurance liability tends to be more complicated after Lyft accidents than after collisions involving regular vehicles. All Lyft drivers are required to carry personal liability insurance .This policy would come into play if an accident occurs while the driver is off duty—i.e. when “driver mode” is off.
If a crash occurs when the Lyft driver’s app is in “driver mode” but no ride has been requested, Lyft’s contingent liability coverage would come into play IF the driver’s personal insurance does not cover the accident. This policy covers $50,000 for bodily injury to one person, $100,000 for total bodily injuries per accident, and $25,000 for property damage.
If an accident occurs after the Lyft driver has accepted a ride request but before the ride has ended in the app, Lyft's $1 million insurance policy would come into play. This policy includes uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
Lyft also provides contingent comprehensive and collision coverage to drivers—but only if they carry personal comprehensive and collision coverage policies.Discuss Your Case with a Fort Lauderdale Lyft Accident Attorney Today!
