Frequently Asked

Lyft Accident Questions

We understand the aftermath of an accident is challenging, so we are here to help.

What Is Lyft's Insurance Policy After A Lyft Accident?

Lyft's insurance policy can be complicated, so it's essential to have our Lyft accident lawyers on your side. The policy limits vary widely depending on the type of accident and when the accident occurs. There are instances when rideshare companies offer $1,000,000 in coverage, and times when the limits are very small (if not entirely non-existent). It’s important to understand the insurance available to you after a crash.

Why Do I Need A Lawyer?

Many rideshare and insurance companies stall to make victims accept a small amount of money. It is critical to have a lawyer that understands the process and case value, and will fight until you get the settlement you deserve. LegalRideshare has been fighting for drivers, passengers, and victims for over 10 years and is the only law firm entirely dedicated to Lyft accidents and injuries.

Does LegalRideshare Help With Cases Outside Of Chicago?

LegalRideshare can assist with accident and injury claims nationwide. We've helped thousands of drivers win millions of dollars.

How Long Do I Have To File A Lyft Accident Lawsuit?

If you were in a Lyft accident in Illinois, you typically have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit (there are times when the deadline is shorter).

Other states have varying deadlines.

Do not wait. Call our lawyers immediately for a consultation.

Will My Lyft Accident Case Go To Court?

Most Lyft accident cases are settled before going to court. That said, if the insurance company is unwilling to offer fair compensation, our lawyers are ready to file the lawsuit on your behalf.
