With the rise in ride-sharing applications, the country has also seen an increase in the number of injuries caused by Lyft accidents. After you get in an accident, you might wonder whether you are eligible to sue.
A Lyft accident can harm passengers in a Lyft, drivers of other cars, pedestrians, or others. After such an accident, you may be dealing with the physical, emotional or financial losses. Fortunately, filing a claim against the responsible party could help you start the path to a full recovery.

Suing Lyft for Damages After an Accident
Generally, your ability to file a claim against Lyft for any losses from a Lyft-related accident depends on whether the at-fault driver had their app turned on at the time of the accident.
If the app was on when the accident occurred, you may be entitled to damages from both Lyft’s insurance plan, as well as the driver’s. In other cases, it’s possible for only the latter to apply.
If you’re injured as a passenger in a Lyft, you may be entitled to damages from Lyft’s insurance. The same thing goes if you are hit by a Lyft driver at fault. Lyft carries a $1 million insurance policy for these instances, but if serious injuries to life or limb occur, filing a formal lawsuit could help you win a financial award beyond that amount.
