About Lyft

Lyft is a rideshare service company that was founded in June 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer. Lyft started in San Francisco, California and quickly expanded to 460 cities in over 70 countries. Lyft continues to be one of the most prominent on-demand transportation options. Lyft continues to provide many drivers with a source of income while providing passengers with a reliable method of transportation. Although Lyft has been successful over the years, there have been many instances of auto accidents involving Lyft vehicles, their drivers, and their passengers. In fact, as the number of Lyft drivers and passengers continue to increase, the instances of auto accidents involving Lyft vehicles also have increased. To deal with these accidents, Lyft must carry a reliable insurance policy that covers their drivers and their passengers. Lyft carries a York Risk Service one million dollar insurance policy. If you were involved in a Lyft accident, you might have to file your Lyft claim against York Insurance.

The Importance of a Settlement

Our attorneys are often approached with the following questions:

  • How long does it take Lyft to settle an accident case?
  • How much time do you have to wait to get compensated by Lyft after an accident?
  • How long does Lyft take to send a settlement check?
  • How long does it take for Lyft to pay out on an accident claim?
  • What affects the amount of time for Lyft to send a check after an accident?

As you can see, reaching a settlement is a top concern. This is because Lyft accidents often lead to financial difficulties that only a settlement could help victim’s overcome. For more information on how to reach a settlement, you must contact us.

Why is it Taking Lyft So Long to Settle My Accident Case?

It is taking long for Lyft to settle your accident case because the process of reaching a settlement can be a complicated process—a process that can be easily affected and extended even further. When you file an accident claim against Lyft, you cannot expect your claim to reach an instant settlement. Your claim is taking so long to settle because there is a long and complex process that must be followed before reaching a settlement. This process is further discussed in the following sections.

Settling a Claim with Lyft’s Insurance

How long does it take Lyft to settle an accident claim? How long does it take for Lyft’s insurance to settle a claim? How much time will it take Lyft to pay out on an accident claim? How long does Lyft take to process a personal injury claim? The answers to these questions depend on many things, especially the length of time it takes you, your attorney, and the insurance company to go through each step of the process associated with settling a claim. The process that leads to eventually settling a claim is outlined below:

  • All medical treatment must be completed, or the injured victim must have reached maximum improvement.
  • The attorney must gather all documents that support the claim.
  • The attorney must create a demand package.
  • The attorney must send the demand package to York Insurance, Lyft’s insurance.
  • York Insurance will receive the demand package and begin an investigation.
  • York Insurance will make a decision regarding the claim (to dismiss or to settle).
  • York Insurance will contact the attorney with the decision.
  • If the decision is to try and settle the claim, York Insurance will make a settlement offer.
  • The attorney must either accept the offer or make a counteroffer.
  • The attorney and the insurance company must continue negotiating until all parties agree on a reasonable settlement amount.
  • The claimant must sign the settlement release form after all parties reach a settlement.
  • York Insurance must send the settlement check to the attorney.
  • The attorney must account for all liens, expenses, and fees directly from the settlement check.
  • The attorney must make the remaining settlement funds available to the claimant.

As you can see, there are many parts of the process of reaching a settlement for a Lyft accident claim. Each of the points above can take time to complete. You might have assumed that Lyft and Lyft’s insurance company could be the only parties that could cause a delay in your settlement; however, both you and your attorney can cause your settlement to take longer. You must hire a persistent attorney that is experienced in handling claims against insurance companies. You must also always do everything in your hands to be available to sign the documents necessary to finally get your check. If you want to reach a settlement as soon as possible, you can trust the attorneys at Kenmore Law Firm.

How Long Does it Take for Lyft’s Insurance to Settle an Accident Claim?

It can take anywhere from a few months to 2 years to settle an injury claim with Lyft. This time frame is dependent on the points discussed above. For example, it can take 3 to 6 months for minor to moderate injuries to heal and for treatment to be complete. This time is extended for more severe injuries. It can take an attorney up to 2 weeks to prepare a demand package to send out to an insurance company. After sending the demand package, it could take more than 1 month to get a response from an insurance company. The negotiating process could take 1 to 3 months or even longer for complex claims. After reaching a settlement, it can take 2 to 6 weeks to receive the settlement check from Lyft’s insurance. Because some of the steps can be postponed, your claim could take up to 2 years to reach a settlement.

Does Hiring an Attorney Speed Up Your Settlement?

How long it takes Lyft to settle a lawsuit does not only depend on the attorney that represents you; therefore, hiring an attorney does not guarantee that your claim will settle sooner. However, hiring an attorney can benefit your claim against Lyft. All insurance companies, including Lyft’s insurance company, share a similar goal—paying little to nothing to claimants. Claims without the representation of an experienced attorney are often dismissed or severely undervalued. Unfortunately, many claimants are unfamiliar and inexperienced with handling claims, so they are easily intimidated by insurance companies. When you hire an attorney, there will always be someone in your representation constantly contacting the insurance adjusters to make sure that your claim will remain a top priority. Our attorneys are prepared to aggressively negotiate with Lyft’s insurance company to reach a reasonable settlement as soon as possible.
