Lyft Insurance Policies
Receiving compensation from Lyft is easiest when the Lyft driver has their application on and has a passenger in the car. Lyft divides its insurance coverage into three periods. If the application is on and the driver is in the process of passenger transport, and an uninsured or underinsured driver causes the accident, Lyft’s insurance policy covers:
- $1 million per accident for property damage; and
- $1 million per accident for bodily injuries.
If a Lyft driver is not actively involved in passenger transport, but the application is on and causes an accident, the coverage is lower. In these situations, Lyft’s insurance policy covers the following:
- $50,000 liability coverage per person;
- $100,000 liability coverage per accident; and
- $25,000 in property damage coverage.
If a Lyft driver does not have a passenger and does not have the Lyft application open, the driver’s own insurance policy is responsible for the accident.
Compensation Available to Lyft Accident Victims
Compensation for Lyft accidents is like any other car accident. The victim of a Lyft accident may receive compensation for the following types of damages:
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental and emotional trauma;
- Amputation or other disfigurement;
- Medical and hospital bills;
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of future income;
- Property damage;
- Loss of enjoyment of life; and
- Wrongful death.
