Let Our West Palm Beach Lyft Accident Attorneys Seek Damages in Your Case
A rideshare car accident can occur in several ways and cause a wide range of injuries. Like other drivers, when a Lyft driver acts carelessly or recklessly behind the wheel, collisions occur. The victims of these crashes could be rideshare riders, occupants of other vehicles, or even pedestrians.
How insurance works in a Florida accident depends on many factors. Any time there are serious injuries, a fault-based case is possible. Our rideshare accident attorneys know how to determine your legal options. Often, our clients can recover damages that include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Property damage
- Related care and support expenses
- Income losses
- Diminished earning capacity due to lasting injuries
- Miscellaneous expenses with receipts
- Pain and suffering losses
A West Palm Beach wrongful death attorney from Ged Lawyers can handle your case if your loved one died from the injuries they suffered in a Lyft accident. Under Florida Statutes § 768.21, immediate family members can recover compensation and hold the at-fault parties responsible for their loved one’s death through legal action. Only the victim’s personal representative—the executor of their estate—can file this type of lawsuit.
Our personal injury attorneys can explain your rights and discuss your next steps. We are here for you during this difficult time. We can also handle negotiations with an insurance company and protect your rights during the claim process.

Our West Palm Beach Lyft Accident Lawyer Can Determine Which Insurance Policy Applies
Rideshare companies have not always been the easiest to work with when it comes to recovering compensation following a crash. In the beginning, victims often found there was no coverage or too little coverage available. Thanks to changing laws across the country, there is now liability insurance coverage for victims of a careless Lyft driver, including:
- Lyft riders hurt in a crash
- Pedestrians or cyclists hit by a Lyft driver
- Other motorists in a collision caused by a rideshare driver
Rideshare companies, including Lyft, provide auto liability coverage in the event that an accident occurs. These policies vary depending on what part of the rideshare cycle the driver is in when there is a collision. In general, you can expect:
- The driver’s own policy to pay if you are in a crash when they are not on the app
- A contingency policy to step in to pay any unpaid portion if they are on the app but not matched with a rider
- A large liability policy to kick in and cover injuries as soon as they match with a ride request or have a rider in their vehicle
To this end, you should always be able to recover compensation in a Lyft accident if you can show that the driver caused the crash. You might also have other options for compensation. Our attorneys can review these with you based on the details of your accident claim.
How Our West Palm Beach Lyft Accident Lawyers Seek Justice
When a rideshare accident victim hires our West Palm Beach Lyft rideshare crash lawyer, we can get started immediately with our investigation into what happened and who is responsible. This process takes some time but ultimately allows us to build a compelling case to recover compensation for our client.
We seek a payout through an insurance claim and negotiated settlement, arbitration or another alternative dispute resolution measure, or a civil lawsuit and jury trial.
We encourage you to connect with our team as soon as your injuries allow. There are several reasons why we need to go to work on these cases as soon as possible. Evidence disappears over time, so we need to take steps to preserve as much evidence in your case as possible.
In addition, there is a statute of limitations that serves as a deadline to sue in these cases. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11, victims generally have two years from the date of their accident to file a lawsuit.
