Las Vegas Lyft Accident Attorney
While many people have heard of the ride sharing giant Uber, the name Lyft doesn’t always ring a bell. But, if you are reading this page, there is a good chance you know exactly who they are and what they do. Lyft, like Uber, is an app-based service that allows people to request a ride anywhere in the Las Vegas metro. With a click of your smart phone, a personal chauffeur will drive you anywhere in Sin City. But, as with most things, there is a catch.
Unlike traditional taxi services, Lyft is not an employer in the strictest sense. In fact, most ridesharing companies currently treat their drivers as independent contractors. This creates a real dilemma for anyone who gets into an accident with a Lyft driver. Some of the more commonly asked questions following a Lyft-involved collision include:
- Who is responsible for the damages?
- Who should I speak to about this?
- Am I covered by insurance?
- Do I need a lawyer?

When you step into a Lyft car you are covered by a few different insurance policies. Both the driver and Lyft have policies that safeguard customers against damages in an accident. Does that mean you’ll actually see any of the money owed to you following a collision? Not necessarily.
In fact, insurance companies that represent ride-sharing providers will fight your claim every step of the way. This may seem counter-intuitive, as they paid to provide a level of coverage. But unfortunately, insurance companies are a business. As such, they work hard to retain as much profit as possible. The less they have to pay out, the better their margins. Which means, in order to obtain the proper compensation, you’ll need an attorney that can fight just as hard as they do.
If you have been in injured in a car accident with a ridesharing provider, don’t wait for them to make the first move. You need an experienced personal injury team in your corner.
