There is no doubt that Lyft has changed the way we travel in San Diego. The ability to open an app and hail a ride from pretty much anywhere in the city in a matter of minutes was unheard of even ten years ago.
Lyft accidents can and do happen frequently in San Diego. Passengers, drivers, and pedestrians have been injured in accidents involving a Lyft vehicle that is transporting customers. When one of these accidents occurs, it is essential to understand your rights and how insurance with Lyft works. In 2015, the State of California enacted a law that requires rideshare companies to provide $1,000,000 in insurance coverage for drivers and passengers as well as uninsured and underinsured coverage. What this means to consumers and drivers who use or drive for Lyft in San Diego is that there can be multiple levels of insurance available to pay for damages sustained in a Lyft accident.
