Lyft Accident Lawyers

Using rideshare companies to get a “lyft” around town is becoming more and more common, particularly in the Washington, DC area. If you’re out with friends and realize you’ve had too much to drink, you can use the app and get a Lyft to get you home. Lyft drivers can drop you off at the train station, get you to work on time when public transportation is jammed, or pick you up at any other time you need. On occasion, Lyft drivers can even help out with other needs. If you lock your keys in the car on one side of town, your partner or roommate can call a Lyft to deliver your spare keys to you.

Most Lyft drivers are careful and complete each ride safely. However, the roads aren’t always free of careless drivers, and so accidents involving Lyft vehicles are all too common in Washington DC. The best Lyft accident attorneys understand the ins and outs of each case and can Lyft Accident Lawyersmanage the often-overlapping or competing insurance policies involved.

Like its biggest competitor, Uber, Lyft carries auto insurance for its drivers and passengers. However, it’s important to know what that insurance does or doesn’t cover in an accident. If you’re injured as the result of a Lyft accident, there are three kinds of coverage to be concerned about: liability coverage, uninsured or underinsured coverage, and no-fault coverage. 

Lyft only carries liability coverage, to protect other drivers from an accident caused by a Lyft employee, and uninsured/underinsured coverage, to protect you if you are struck by a driver who has no insurance or poor insurance. The policy limits for both policies are one million dollars each. This does not mean that you can automatically receive a million dollars after an accident, or that Lyft will always cover claims; rather, it means that there is up to a million dollars of potential coverage to cover any claimants. Just like most insurance companies, the company that insured Lyft, York Risk Services, will try to avoid paying for damages if it possibly can.

Most of the time, Lyft’s policy with York Risk Services will not include no-fault coverage. No-fault coverage is an important benefit that can sometimes be accessed in order to defray short-term medical costs and lost wages. If you are injured in a Lyft accident, you should immediately speak with a Lyft accident attorney about whether you might be able to use your own personal auto policy’s no-fault benefits. Depending on your jurisdiction, it might be to your advantage, or it might not be, so getting good advice from an expert attorney is critical.

If you’ve been injured in a Lyft accident, make sure that you don’t speak to representatives of Lyft, York Risk Services, or any insurance companies. Take photos and document everything, but don’t sign anything until after you’ve had a chance to speak to a personal injury/Lyft attorney. In some cases, the attorney will be able to meet you at your home or medical provider office and get the process started as quickly as possible. Cohen & Cohen

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
