There are many factors that must be taken into account in order to determine how much insurance coverage Lyft will provide for a motor vehicle collision involving a Lyft vehicle in Davidson County. For instance, if you were driving your own vehicle when a Lyft vehicle hit you but the driver was not on the clock, the driver’s personal auto insurance would be in effect if the driver is proven to be at fault, such as for reckless driving. On the other hand, if the driver had accepted a ride from a passenger or was transporting someone when the accident occurred, Lyft’s $1 million in insurance coverage would be in effect to compensate for bodily injury, property damage, and/or death resulting from the collision. A Lyft accident attorney in Nashville can help you determine which policy would apply.
Let’s say, for example, that you were traveling as a passenger via a Lyft vehicle to the Nashville Metropolitan Government building, located at 1700 3rd Avenue North, Nashville, Tennessee 37208. At the four-way stop on 4th Avenue North and Garfield Street, the Lyft vehicle you are in is side-swiped by another vehicle, and as a result, you sustain serious injuries. In this scenario where you are the passenger in the Lyft vehicle, the $1 million in coverage provided by Lyft would also be in place.
Even if the at-fault driver of a Lyft collision in which you were a Lyft passenger is underinsured or uninsured, Lyft’s insurance policy could provide compensation for your losses despite the fact that the other driver is the one who caused the collision. As one can see, collisions involving a Lyft vehicle can present unique complexities. Not only can a knowledgeable Lyft accident lawyer in the Nashville area inform you of whose coverage would come into play, but your attorney can also fight to make sure that you get the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries and losses, which could include reimbursement of medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.Explore Your Options with an NST Attorney Today
