Lyft’s Insurance CoverageIt is common knowledge that Lyft carries an impressive insurance policy that could apply to Lyft drivers, Lyft passengers, and other injured victims outside of the vehicle and unaffiliated with Lyft. Lyft’s insurance policy could include up to one million dollars in coverage. The way Lyft’s insurance policy applies is discussed below:
- If driver mode is off – if the Lyft driver is involved in an accident when driver mode is off (driving on personal time), there is no insurance coverage other than the driver’s personal insurance or the liable party’s insurance policy.
- If driver mode is on but no ride has been accepted – if the Lyft driver is involved in an accident prior to accepting a ride, Lyft’s insurance coverage could apply. However, the insurance coverage would be contingent on any other applicable insurance coverage. Contingent coverage includes $50,000 max. per person and $100,000 max. per accident (and $25,000 max. for property damage).
- If the driver is on an active ride – if the Lyft driver is on an active ride, Lyft drivers and Lyft passengers will be fully covered by Lyft’s policy with coverage of up to $1,000,000. The coverage includes auto liability, uninsured/underinsured motorists, and comprehensive collision.
