Boston LYFT Accident Attorneys

Rideshare services like Lyft have become very popular over the last decade. They offer convenient ways for people to get from place to place. However, many people wonder what happens if they are involved in an accident with a Lyft vehicle. At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our team has a thorough understanding of how rideshare services operate and what their insurance policies entail. Our Boston Lyft accident attorneys are ready to help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Lyft Accidents Do Occur In Boston

There are thousands upon thousands of rideshare drivers in and around Boston. It is inevitable that there will be a car accident caused by the negligence or carelessness of a Lyft driver. During the latest reporting year in Massachusetts, there were 350 traffic crash fatalities and over 3,000 serious crash injuries. These numbers do not include the tens of thousands of other crash injuries that can lead to major medical bills.

What Insurance Will Cover A Lyft Accident?

If a Lyft driver is at fault for an accident, the insurance landscape can become confusing. While Lyft does have an insurance policy to cover their drivers and passengers, this only applies in certain situations.

  • If a Lyft driver is not signed into the company’s app for work, and they get into a crash, the driver’s personal insurance carrier is responsible for covering any injuries and damages.
  • If a Lyft driver is signed into the company’s app and is waiting for a fare when they cause an accident, their personal insurance carrier is still the first option to pay for injuries and damages. Lyft’s Insurance will only kick in after the driver’s personal insurance coverage has been exhausted.
  • If a Lyft driver is signed into the company’s app, has a fare, or is on the way to pick up a fare when they get into an accident, Lyft’s $1 million insurance policy will kick in to cover personal injuries and property damage for the accident.

Why Is This Important?

Car accident injuries can lead to major medical expenses. There are also other hidden costs of an accident that victim may incur, including lost income, home and vehicle modifications, pain and suffering damages, and more. It is important to have these expenses taken care of so the car accident victim does not have to pay out-of-pocket.
