Jackson, MS Lyft Accidents
A big player in the rideshare market is Lyft, and it is gaining momentum in areas like Hinds County. While the list of benefits of ridesharing is extensive to say the least, there is a noticeable downside to it being widespread: accidents involving Lyft vehicles.

While there is always the risk of a collision when driving or riding in any type of motor vehicle, Lyft has strict requirements in place for its drivers, so you are less likely to end up in harm’s way with a Lyft driver taking you where you need to go. According to its guidelines, Lyft does not use drivers who have:
- a DUI
- any drug-related violation in the last seven years
- more than three moving violations in the past three years
- any driving-related convictions in the last seven years
- had one major driving violation in the past three years
Even though Lyft’s scrupulous vetting process makes it highly unlikely that a Lyft driver would cause a drunk driving accident or a similar kind of collision, there are still collisions involving Lyft vehicles.
Sometimes, not even the safest of drivers can prevent an accident from happening because of other drivers. For example, we shall say that you are riding in a Lyft vehicle to the Old Capitol Museum, located at 100 South State Street, Jackson, Mississippi 39201. There is another vehicle near you whose driver is hallucinating because he took his prescription medication with alcohol before he left his house. The discombobulated driver ends up ramming into the back of the Lyft vehicle you are in and runs you off the road, causing you to suffer critical injuries.
You may be wondering who exactly in this scenario is responsible for your injuries and losses. This, among many other reasons, is why you should hire a skilled Lyft accident attorney in Jackson, Mississippi. For the hypothetical scenario, liability would fall on the intoxicated driver’s insurance carrier if he was deemed at fault, and even if he were uninsured or underinsured, Lyft’s $1 million in bodily insurance coverage could fill in the gaps.Consult an Experienced Lyft Accident Lawyer in Jackson About Your Case Today
