While hailing a Lyft is convenient, affordable, and easy, ridesharing drivers can be just as prone to negligent behavior as anyone else. Drowsy driving, speeding, and intoxicated driving can have life-altering ramifications for passengers, other motorists, and pedestrians. But who is liable for your injuries and suffering? Is it the driver, or is it Lyft?

Why you Need Ride Share Accident Lawyers

At Rutter Mills, we understand the complexities of rideshare accident claims and leverage the resources to help our clients secure the full compensation to which they are entitled. The laws surrounding rideshare injury claims can be confusing, which is why you need an experienced Lyft accident attorney or Uber car accident lawyer advocating on your behalf.

The Virginia car accident lawyers of Rutter Mills bring decades of legal expertise to each Lyft claim we handle. For powerful representation in Virginia Beach, Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Chesapeake, reach out to arrange a private consultation.

Whether you were hurt as a rideshare passenger, were in an accident with a Lyft driver, or were struck down as a pedestrian or cyclist, we can fight for the monetary damages you deserve.

Lyft Insurance Coverage for Accidents

  • All medical costs and expenses, including ongoing treatment
  • Loss of income
  • Cost of repairs for property damage
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Contingent liability
  • Primary liability
  • Collision
  • Uninsured/Underinsured motorist coverage
  • $100,000 limit per accident
  • $50,000 maximum per person for bodily injury
  • $25,000 maximum for property damage with zero deductible

This policy is in effect when the Lyft driver is in ‘driver mode’ but has not received a ride request.

Once the Lyft driver has accepted a ride, the insurance policy increases to $1,000,000 of third-party liability coverage and (UM/UIM) per accident.

You should be covered by the company’s 1 million dollar policy. However, ridesharing companies can make it challenging to recover proper reparations, even in accidents where the company’s driver was clearly at fault.

VET -David S.

I knew it would be a long hard road to get an award from the VA for my multiple disabilities. However, the process was made so much easier with Rutter Mills. I was kept informed and able to follow the decision making process with my claim at the VA. They were always available if I had any questions and responded promptly. I was able to obtain a 100% rating, and couldn’t be more pleased with how they handled things from start to finish. I would gladly recommend them to any vet facing a situation like mine.
