Can I Sue Lyft for an Accident in Colorado?
Lyft is one of the most popular rideshare services around the country because it’s a safe, cost-effective, and convenient form of transportation. If you’re a passenger riding in a Lyft and you get in an accident, you deserve compensation for any damages you suffer. It’s possible to receive a settlement from Lyft’s insurance, but you may have to take legal action, depending on who caused the accident.
A Denver car accident lawyer from Justice for Colorado can determine who’s liable for your accident by working with the police to gather photographs, witness testimonies, and other relevant evidence. If you must take legal action, we’ll work hard to maximize the settlement you receive by accounting for both your economic and non-economic damages.
Lyft Insurance Coverage
Lyft provides extensive insurance coverage for their drivers and passengers. When a driver is using the Lyft app and is on their way to pick up a passenger, Lyft provides $50,000 per person in bodily injury coverage, $100,000 per accident in bodily injury coverage, and $25,000 in property damage coverage.
When a Lyft driver has a passenger in the vehicle, Lyft extends their coverage to $1 million per accident.
Filing a Lawsuit against a Negligent Third Party
Lyft may not give you a settlement for your injuries if a colliding driver, a government entity, or another liable party other than the Lyft driver caused your accident. You may have to sue the negligent third party for your damages and prove negligence against them using evidence. Your car accident attorney in Denver can negotiate on your behalf in court to get the most out of your claim.
