Dallas Lyft Accident Attorney

Lyft is a household name in and around the Dallas area. This popular rideshare service serves countless people each day in the city. While most rides are completely safe, there are times when accidents involving Lyft vehicles occur. At the Law Office Of Julie Johnson, we are here to help if you or a loved one have been injured and need a Dallas Lyft accident attorney. We will investigate every aspect of what happened and work to secure the compensation you are entitled to.

How often do Dallas Lyft accidents occur?

During the latest reporting year in Texas, there were 249,241 total people injured and 3,639 total fatalities as a result of traffic collisions. Texas does not keep track of accidents involving rideshare company vehicles like Lyft, and Lyft does not publicly release crash statistics. However, these drivers use their personal vehicles, and most of them do not have any specialized driver training. They are just as likely to get into an accident as anyone else on Dallas roadways. It could be argued that they are more likely to be involved in a crash because they spend so much of their time on the road each day.

Who is going to pay for Lyft accident expenses?

One of the most commonly asked questions in the aftermath of a Lyft accident is – who is responsible for paying for injury and damage expenses?

This answer to this question can become complicated, and a variety of factors are taken into consideration. There are often multiple insurance carriers involved in these accidents, including the Lyft driver’s personal carrier, the insurance carriers of other drivers involved, and insurance provided by Lyft.

  • If a Lyft driver is not signed in to work on the Lyft app when they cause an accident, then their personal insurance carrier is responsible for covering any injuries or damages.
  • If a Lyft driver is signed in to work on the app but does not have a passenger when they cause an accident, Lyft will only provide limited coverage if the driver’s personal insurance carrier denies the claim or does not cover all the expenses.
  • Lyft does have a $1 million insurance policy to cover anyone involved in a crash with a Lyft vehicle if the driver was signed into work and had a passenger at the time of the incident (or was on the way to pick up a passenger).
