Legal Representation for Rideshare Crash Victims in Knoxville and Surrounding Areas

As far as rideshare services go in Knox County, Lyft has become one of the most prevalent. The convenience of rideshare services has made Lyft’s presence a staple in densely populated areas like Knoxville. However, the prevalence of Lyft has also resulted in increased numbers of accidents involving Lyft vehicles in the area. These collisions can cause victims to suffer devastating injuries, such as spinal cord damage, broken bones, whiplash, head trauma, skull fractures, lacerations, and more. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a Lyft accident, you should contact one of the Knoxville Lyft accident lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz today to discuss the details of the accident and receive guidance through the legal process. As the largest plaintiff’s personal injury law firm based in Tennessee, we are comprised of more than 30 practiced attorneys and over 120 diligent staff members.

Deciphering Lyft Accidents

Lyft vets its drivers to protect its customers by not allowing people to drive for Lyft who have had a DUI or drug-related violation in the last seven years, any driving-related convictions in the past seven years, a major driving violation in the last three years, or more than three moving violations in the last three years. Despite such safety measures, Lyft collisions still occur, and in a rideshare crash situation where you are the victim, you may wonder who is responsible for the collision and how much coverage is available to pay for your losses.

An experienced Lyft accident lawyer in the Knoxville area can enlighten you on liability in rideshare collisions in detail as well as assert your rights to the fullest, but there are a few things to note yourself when it comes to insurance coverage after a Lyft collision. If another driver is, for example, tailgating and rear-ends the Lyft vehicle that is transporting you to The Muse Knoxville, which is located at 516 North Beaman Street, Knoxville, Tennessee 37914, Lyft’s insurance policy will cover your losses up to $1 million for whatever the at-fault driver is lacking in personal auto insurance. The $1 million in liability coverage also comes into play when you are the passenger of a Lyft vehicle and the Lyft driver is at fault.

Similar to Uber, different coverage limits would come into play if the driver had the Lyft app on but had not yet accepted a ride from a prospective customer. In the event Lyft wrongfully denies coverage after a collision, you may need to file a lawsuit and have your attorney investigate on your behalf. Through the discovery process, information could be obtained that allows a car accident attorney in Knoxville to recover damages to which you are legally entitled, including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and emotional distress.
