Understanding Lyft Accident Claims

The Lyft app has transformed the way we commute. However, with this convenience comes a new set of complexities when rideshare accidents occur—when a Lyft vehicle is involved and whether the Lyft driver is at fault.

It can occur in various scenarios, such as:

  • A Lyft passenger getting injured in a Lyft car due to the driver’s negligence
  • A pedestrian accident due to a cyclist hit by a Lyft driver
  • A collision involving a third-party vehicle and a Lyft vehicle
  • Injuries sustained by a Lyft driver due to another motorist’s negligence

Legal Basis for Lyft Accident Claims

The legal basis for Lyft accident claims primarily rests on negligence. If a Lyft driver fails to exercise reasonable care while driving, resulting in an accident causing injuries, they may be held legally liable.

However, it’s important to note that Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors rather than employees, complicating matters on liability.

While Lyft provides auto insurance coverage for its drivers, the specifics and legal options vary depending on whether the driver is waiting for a ride request, en route to pick up a passenger, or transporting a passenger.

Elements of Lyft Accident Claims

When pursuing a Lyft accident claim, victims must prove the following elements:

  • Duty of care: The Lyft driver owed a duty of care to the victim.
  • Breach: The Lyft driver breached that duty of care by acting (or failing to act) in a certain way.
  • Causation: This breach directly caused the accident.
  • Damages: The victim suffered damages as a result of the accident.

Victims may claim various damages, including medical expenses, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering, and punitive damages.

Tips for Filing a Lyft Accident Claim

Navigating the legal process can be complex, but these tips can help:

  • Seek medical attention: Always seek medical treatment immediately after a motor vehicle accident, even if you think your bodily injuries are minor. Note that symptoms can sometimes manifest a day after; hence, don’t leave medical care to the last minute.
  • Document the accident: Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage. Also, get the contact information of any witnesses.
  • Report the accident: Report the accident to both Lyft and your own insurance company.
  • Consult a lawyer: Engaging a car accident lawyer experienced in Lyft accident claims can significantly improve your chances of receiving fair compensation.

Our commitment to thorough preparation, aggressive negotiation, and vigorous courtroom representation ensures our clients can obtain the compensation they deserve.

Case Evaluation and Consultation

Our process begins with a thorough case evaluation during an initial consultation. We listen to your account of the accident and ask critical questions about the circumstances. We review any evidence you’ve gathered, such as photos, medical reports, and eyewitness accounts.

Our lawyers also consider factors like the extent of your injuries, the impact on your lifestyle, and the liability of the involved parties. This comprehensive assessment helps us determine the merits of your case and devise a preliminary legal strategy.

Investigation and Evidence Gathering

Once we take on your case, our team conducts a rigorous investigation to gather additional evidence. This may involve interviewing witnesses, consulting with accident reconstruction experts, and reviewing medical records and police reports. We aim to build a strong case that establishes liability and the extent of your damages.

Strategic Negotiation and Settlement

Armed with solid evidence, we engage in strategic negotiations with insurance companies and opposing counsel. Our goal is not just to reach a settlement but to secure the best possible outcome for you.

We leverage our extensive experience and solid understanding of insurance tactics to counter lowball offers and push for a settlement that fully compensates you for your losses.

Litigation and Trial Representation

We are prepared to take your case to court if a fair settlement cannot be reached. Our litigation process includes filing the lawsuit, engaging in pre-trial discovery to uncover further evidence, and representing you in the courtroom.

Our attorneys are skilled litigators who excel at presenting persuasive arguments and are unafraid to fight for your rights before a judge or jury.

If you’ve been injured as a passenger in a Lyft vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Understanding the Bicycle Accident Claim Process

Filing a bicycle accident claim

If you have been injured in a bike crash, the first step in seeking compensation is to file a bicycle accident personal injury claim. 

To start with the process, collect evidence by taking photos of the accident scene and of the property damages and injuries, and by getting information from the parties involved as well as witnesses. File a police report and obtain a copy before contacting a bicycle accident lawyer who will then help you through the rest of the legal process. 

Your insurance company needs to be informed of the extent of the damages, as well as an assessment of your medical expenses and other losses. With the help of your attorney, initiate the bike accident claim and present the supporting evidence. Depending on the situation, a bike accident claim can go through either of the two options: settlement negotiation or litigation. Either way, your legal representative will guide you throughout the process.

Our experienced attorneys will also provide transparent and timely updates, answer any question you may have, offer expert legal advice, and strategize on how best to secure a fair compensation for your medical bills and other expenses.

At Frantz Law Group, we work on a contingency-fee basis for bicycle accident claims, avoiding upfront costs during the legal process. Fees are only collected upon successful compensation recovery.  

This fee structure helps bike crash victims to pursue a claim without financial strain, providing peace of mind while seeking justice and compensation for damages and losses.
