    How Can Hiring a Lyft accident attorney Improve My Chances of Recovering Compensation?

    Rideshare accidents are often caused by driver negligence and can potentially result in severe injuries and property damage. If you were involved in a Lyft accident, speaking with a rideshare accident lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and options.

    An experienced Lyft accident lawyer understands the complexities of rideshare accidents, can identify the liable party or parties, prove negligence, and negotiate with the insurance company to help you recover compensation for all of your accident-related losses.

    How is Liability Determined in Ridesharing Accidents?

    In rideshare accidents, the question of who is responsible can be complex due to the unique nature of these services. Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors and not employees of the company. As a result, establishing liability can be challenging and complex, requiring a careful examination of the circumstances surrounding the accident and the actions of the parties involved. Depending on the specific details, the liability may rest with the Lyft driver, other motorists, the rideshare company, or a combination of multiple parties.


    Why Are Insurance claims Involving Ridesharing services So Complex?

    Rideshare accidents present many challenges compared to typical passenger vehicle accidents. Factors such as the use of rideshare apps, the nature of the driver-passenger relationship, and the involvement of rideshare companies makes it difficult to determine liability. Additionally, navigating through the insurance coverage and determining which insurance policies apply can be challenging.

    A skilled rideshare accident lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys possesses the necessary knowledge and resources needed to investigate the collision, identify the liable party (parties), and prove negligence.

    A Lyft accident attorney will conduct a thorough investigation, gathering evidence such:

    • Rideshare app records
    • Phone records
    • Police report
    • Employment history of negligent drivers
    • Liability coverage information
    • Medical records
    • Photos of the accident scene, damage done to every vehicle involved, and your injuries
    • Eyewitness statements

    And other evidence to determine which driving phase the Lyft driver was in, what contributed to the accident, what actions caused the accident, and which party should be held liable.

    Proving negligence is crucial in establishing liability and securing the compensation you deserve.

    How Can a Lawyer Hold the Rideshare company and Negligent Lyft driver Financially Responsible?

    Once your rideshare accident attorney has built a strong case that clearly identifies the negligent parties, they will proceed with settlement negotiations.

    If you were involved in an accident with a Lyft driver at the time they were transporting a passenger or you were a passenger in the rideshare vehicle and the Lyft driver was at fault, your attorney will first determine whether the Lyft driver’s personal insurance can cover the full extent of your damages. If the driver does not have sufficient coverage, your attorney will then contact the rideshare company’s insurance provider to begin negotiating for the remainder of the settlement you’re owed.

    If a fair settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys will continue with negotiations as we prepare your case for trial. Fortunately, most rideshare accidents are settled out of court.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
