Rideshare apps like Lyft are growing in popularity both in Utah and across the United States. They are a reliable, cheap alternative to traditional cabs and are used extensively in areas with no public transport facilities and little taxi cab coverage. Many Lyft users love the speed and convenience of this service, and drivers appreciate the flexibility and choice that comes with registering to work for the company.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a Lyft accident, our expert attorneys are well-versed in navigating the legal complexities surrounding such cases. Suing for damages is not always straightforward in these types of accidents, as there is often a dispute regarding liability and, in particular, whether the claim should be made against Lyft’s insurance, or the driver’s own auto insurance.
All Lyft drivers are covered by their corporate insurance, however, this only applies when the driver is logged in to the app and available to work, or is in the process of driving a passenger from pick-up to drop-off. If the Lyft driver has logged off, perhaps to take a break, or while driving home from their shift, their personal insurance should cover any accidents or incidents. As you may imagine, this can swiftly become somewhat of a minefield, best handled by legal experts.
