Like Uber, Lyft is a company that also has a $1 billion auto insurance
policy for drivers and passengers on their way to a destination. However,
the company may still try and dodge liability if costly medical bills
are on the line. Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors,
rather than employees. Therefore, the drivers are not licensed or regulated
by the state or municipality, and they are not bound by certain laws that
traditional cab companies are. If Lyft’s insurance company can prove
the driver was not “on the clock” when the accident occurred,
they will attempt to deny you compensation for your injury.
Let Us Take a Look at Your Case
Lyft and other ridesharing service companies have a responsibility to hire
safe drivers who can provide their passengers with a safe environment.
If there are risks of harm associated with Lyft and its drivers, the company
must also provide sufficient warnings and safeguard. Failing to do so
could lead to dangerous accidents. If you were injured in a Lyft accident
and the company is attempting to deny liability, you will need the help
of a skilled Los Angeles Lyft accident attorney to help. Our firm can
help you recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and property
damage. For the families of those who have died in Lyft car accidents,
they may be able to recover compensation to cover the costs of funeral
expenses and pain and suffering. Let us see what we can do for you and
