New Jersey Law on Lyft Accident Insurance
New Jersey applies a no-fault system to auto insurance policies. This system requires motorists to use their own insurance for compensation for injuries sustained in an accident. This is true even when you are not at fault for the accident. However, the rules are different when it comes to Lyft accidents. Those injured in Lyft accidents can pursue compensation from Lyft’s commercial insurance policy. However, this policy is only available if the Lyft driver was ‘on the clock’ at the time of the accident. This means that the Lyft driver was logged into the app and was waiting for requests from passengers, en route to pick up a passenger or was transporting a passenger.
Lyft’s commercial insurance policy provides the following level of coverage:
- If the Lyft driver was logged into the app and waiting for requests on the app, Lyft’s commercial insurance policy will provide up to $50,000 in liability per injured person, $25,000 for property damage, and $100,000 injury liability per accident.
- If the Lyft driver was logged into the app at the time of the accident and was headed to pick up a passenger or had a passenger on board, Lyft’s commercial insurance policy will provide cover of up to $1.5 million in bodily injury and property damage. If you were a Lyft passenger at the time of the accident and the accident was caused by another motorist, you can make a claim against this policy if the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured.
If the Lyft driver had the app turned off, Lyft’s commercial insurance policy will not apply. Instead, their personal insurance policy will apply. In this case, the car accident insurance claim will be treated like any other car accident claim.
It is important to have the guidance and representation of an experienced attorney when seeking compensation for a Lyft accident. The New Jersey Lyft accident lawyers will review the circumstances of your case and identify the at-fault party or parties. We will work to gather the evidence needed to build a strong claim on your behalf. We will fight to ensure your recover the financial compensation you deserve and need.
