Glendale
Lyft Accident Attorney

Glendale Lyft Accident

Rideshare drivers in today’s gig economy drive 10 or more hours a day, often in heavy traffic in populated cities around California and the United States. This excessive driving manifests itself into a perfect storm for car accidents to occur. Overtired and often underpaid, Lyft drivers continue driving until they are forced to pull over and sleep. Watch your daily news; Lyft accidents happen rather frequently.

A Glendale Lyft accident attorney fighting for victims’ rights, Howard Craig Kornberg quickly adopted ridesharing accidents into his litigation services because, much like taxicabs, Lyft drivers are held to a higher standard of passenger care when transporting them between any two points. Not only are these app-based drivers responsible for their own passengers, but they’re also responsible for everyone they crash into.

Lyft Accidents are Treated Like All Others

Although technology provides a means for independent drivers to earn a steady income, responsibilities after an accident on the same as regular passenger cars or commercial vehicles. Nobody is above the law, although Lyft will vehemently deny direct involvement with their own driver’s conduct. Much like Uber, the company puts a blanket insurance policy into play when riders book a driver, and both state and federal law enforcement the policy when passengers are in the car.

Howard Craig Kornberg holds Lyft drivers accountable in the same manner any other at-fault driver would be. The only difference is which insurer will get his settlement demand or send a representative court. Make no mistake: Howard is one Glendale Lyft accident attorney that means business.

Lyft’s coverage is subdivided into four parts:

  • Contingent liability, activated when an app’s on with no riders in the car.
  • Primary automobile liability, which kicks in when the driver picks up the passenger.
  • Contingent comprehensive and collision, a subpart of the above.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist, another subpart of primary automobile liability.

Maximum liability under Lyft’s policy, should drivers involve themselves or others in an accident, is capped at $1 million per incident, with a $2,500 deductible applicable for contingent liability and comprehensive only.

As the landscape of ridesharing laws continues to evolve, my services will continue to adapt to changes in legislation. Because figuring out which insurer to contact after ridesharing accidents may seem confusing, you may find it beneficial to contact Howard Craig Kornberg, a Lyft accident lawyer proficient in insurance nomenclature and how to apply laws and procedures toward your case.

Bad Lyft? Howard Will Make Them Pay.

Ridesharing has undoubtedly revolutionized the way we transport ourselves between two points. It’s a big fan of the law enforcement because it cuts down on DWI arrests and an even bigger fan of today’s younger workforce. Convenient and many times less expensive than local cabs, Lyft runs neck and neck with Uber as the largest ridesharing companies available.

If you were picked up by a Lyft driver, and find yourself at the wrong end of an accident, or if you’re another driver victimized by the actions of a ridesharing driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Contact my office today.
