How Can a Lyft Accident Attorney Help?

Lyft Accident Lawyer

In both New York and Florida, which are no-fault states, pursuing compensation in a rideshare accident when your injuries exceed Personal injury protection coverage can be complex. However, with the help of an experienced ridesharing accident lawyer at Friedland & Associates, you can navigate the legal landscape and seek the compensation you deserve.

Here’s how an attorney at our firm can help:

Accident Investigation

A Lyft accident attorney at Friedland & Associates will investigate the accident, gather evidence, assess your damages, and determine the best legal strategy for pursuing compensation beyond your PIP coverage. They will negotiate with insurance companies, gather medical records, interview witnesses, and if necessary, file a lawsuit to secure the compensation you deserve.

Assessing Damages

As an accident victim, you may be eligible for various types of damages, which can include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage

A skilled Lyft accident lawyer will work to accurately assess the extent of your damages and build a compelling case to seek appropriate compensation.

Determining Liability & Pursuing Compensation

Liability in a rideshare accident can be very complex, especially if you suffered severe or life-changing injuries. These laws can vary by state. Fortunately, the rideshare accident lawyers at Friedland & Associates are familiar with both New York and Florida liability laws and know how to help you recover every penny of compensation you deserve for your injuries and other losses.

New York:

In New York, the no-fault insurance system requires that individuals injured in car accidents seek compensation from their own insurance policies regardless of who is at fault.

However, if your injuries exceed the PIP coverage, you may have options to pursue additional compensation:

Serious Injury Threshold
New York law allows individuals with “serious injuries” to step outside the no-fault system and file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. An attorney will help you establish that your injuries meet the legal criteria for a serious injury, such as significant disfigurement, fracture, permanent limitation of use, or full disability.

Pursuing Third-Party Liability
If another driver is at fault, your attorney may advocate for a third-party liability claim against their insurance, enabling you to access compensation beyond your PIP coverage.

Third-Party Liability
If another driver was at fault in the accident, your attorney may pursue a third-party liability claim against their insurance. This can help you seek compensation beyond your PIP coverage.


Florida’s no-fault system also requires victims to turn to their own insurance policies for compensation after an accident. However, Florida’s no-fault coverage is limited, and injured parties may be able to pursue additional compensation:

Serious Injury Threshold
Similar to New York, Florida also has a serious injury threshold. If your injuries meet the state’s criteria for serious injuries, you can step outside the no-fault system and seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Comparative Fault
Florida follows a pure comparative fault system, which means that even if you are partially at fault for the accident, you can still seek compensation. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

Rideshare Company Liability
Rideshare companies like Lyft provide liability coverage for their drivers while they are on duty. If the rideshare driver’s negligence caused the accident, your attorney may seek compensation from the rideshare company’s insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage
Your own insurance policy might include uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which can help cover your damages if the at-fault party is uninsured or underinsured.

Should I Hire a Attorney After a Rideshare Accident?

The laws and regulations surrounding rideshare accidents and no-fault insurance systems can be complex. Consulting with an experienced attorney who specializes in these types of cases is crucial to ensuring your rights are protected and you receive the maximum compensation possible.
