Do You Need a Tampa Lyft Auto Accident Lawyer?

Is it Important to Hire an Attorney That Understands Lyft Accidents?
Lyft believes its only responsibility is to link up drivers and passengers. Since Lyft drivers are not full time employees of the company, Lyft believes it is not liable for car accidents caused by its drivers. A personal injury attorney that is not familiar with these claims may have a difficult time proving your case.
As of the time of this writing Lyft does voluntarily provide up to $1 million dollars of insurance coverage for car accidents involving its drivers even though the state of Florida does not require it. However, the Lyft website says the insurance only covers drivers actions when they are engaged in a ride. This may mean Lyft’s insurance does not cover car crashes when the driver is looking for rides to pick up. Under those circumstances the drivers own insurance will cover the claim if the driver disclosed to his or her insurance company the vehicle was being used to drive in a business. Our Lyft accident lawyers figure all this out for you.
