Long Island Lyft Accident Lawyer

When you’ve been injured in a Lyft accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Get help holding the liable party accountable by calling a respected Lyft accident lawyer on Long Island.

Lyft accident claims are a little different than standard car accident claims. This is because not only are you dealing with your own auto insurance company, but you’re also having to deal with Lyft. Going up against a large corporation can be intimidating. But when you have the right legal representation, it can make all the difference.

At the Law Offices of Dennis Smith, PLLC, we have the experience and training you need to get justice. Your Long Island Lyft accident lawyer will work rigorously to negotiate with the insurance company, and secure maximum compensation for all you have been through.

Insurance and Long Island Lyft Accident Claims

Because New York is a no-fault state for auto accidents, you will file a claim with your own car insurance provider after being involved in a Long Island Lyft accident. However, just because you’re dealing with your own insurance company doesn’t mean you will be awarded the conversation you deserve immediately. 

Remember, the insurance company loses money by settling your claim, so it will try to minimize the amount that it has to pay out on your claim. The good news is that Lyft has $1 million insurance policy in effect during specific times, including:

  • When the driver is in driver mode
  • When the driver is picking up a ride
  • When the driver is transporting a ride 

If the accident occurred during one of these times, your own auto insurance provider will likely be able to obtain the compensation that is rightfully yours. But in some cases, accidents occur outside of these time frames, which manes the Lyft auto insurance policy was not in effect—it would fall to the Long Island Lyft driver’s personal auto insurance policy. 

What to Do When Insurance Won’t Pay Out on Your Long Island Lyft Accident Lawsuit

If you’re having trouble obtaining compensation from the insurance company, you should first let your lawyer handle the negotiations on your behalf so you don’t have to risk being taken advantage of in your time of need. 

However, if, after negotiations, your Lyft accident lawyer is unable to secure the conversation you deserve, your next step may be to move forward with a civil claim against the appropriate liable party, whether that be the Lyft driver, Lyft, or another third party.
