How to File an Accident Report with Lyft

How to File an Accident Report with Lyft rideshare lawsuit incident lawyer attorney compensation kenmore sue
What Is Lyft, and How Does It Work?

Lyft is a rideshare company that works like a taxi. It hires people who use their own cars to take customers from Point A to Point B. When you hire a Lyft car ride, you use their mobile app to book the fare, and you get into the car when it shows up at your door stop or rendezvous place of meeting. Your assumption when you get into a Lyft rideshare vehicle is that you will be delivered promptly and safely to your final ride destination. No one gets into a Lyft rideshare vehicle thinking that the vehicle is about to be in a horrific car accident – but it can happen.

California Requires Lyft Drivers to Have Car Insurance on Their Vehicles

Lyft drivers are required to have insurance on their vehicles before they can take rideshare passengers. The insurance coverage corresponds to Periods 0 – 3 of coverage for Lyft drivers.

Period 0 starts when The Period 0 or the minimum coverage is:

  • $15,000 for bodily injuries on each person injured in an accident
  • $30,000 for bodily injury per accident
  • $5,000 property damage coverage per accident

Period 1 is activated when the Lyft driver is ready to work, and has activated the app, but no passengers are picked up as yet. This coverage is $50,000/$100,000 and $25,000 property damage.

Periods 2 and 3 begin when the driver has picked up a passenger. This offers $1 million in insurance coverage for the Lyft driver and passenger.

The Accidents Lyft Drivers Have Are Just Like Other Driver Accidents

Accidents with Lyft drivers can occur as a result of:

  • A collision with another vehicle
  • Sliding off the road in slippery conditions
  • Hitting a person walking on the road
  • Hitting a bicyclist sharing the road
  • Hitting a motorcyclist
  • Hitting a tree
  • Running a red light
  • Shifting lanes unsafely
  • Passing in a no passing zone
  • Driving too fast for the conditions
  • Hitting an animal in the road
  • Hitting debris in the road
  • Not seeing well in foggy conditions
  • Going to fast with severe cross winds

When Should I Make a Lyft Incident Report for Personal Injuries?

You should make a Lyft incident report for personal injuries as soon as you can after the loss. If you were in an accident, you should be seen by a healthcare professional immediately. If there was an opportunity to be seen at the scene of the accident, you should have taken the chance then to be seen by EMTs for the personal injuries that you have received.

Sometimes, people at the scene of an accident will refuse treatment for their injuries. If you are asked at the scene of an accident to get checked out, you should take advantage of that opportunity. For example, if you have suffered a concussion, or have internal injuries, you might not even know it at the time. This is the reason to be seen on scene for your injuries. If you did not get seen at the scene of the accident, it is not too late to just go the hospital to be seen. Or in the alternative, make an urgent appointment with your personal healthcare provider to be seen.
