Auto Accident Injury Claims and Settlements
I've had many car accident settlements for people who are injured while in Florida. While it can be difficult for the average person (or attorney) to know about available insurance or how much a car accident case may be worth, I look at past cases (both my own and other attorneys) to help determine the value.
Which is why I write about auto accident settlements and insurance from time to time.
Want to learn about recent Lyft car accident claims and settlement amounts?
Here, you’ll get awesome up to date tips on dealing with Lyft’s claims department.
Why do recent tips matter?
Because you want to make sure that you are getting current information. This is important because Lyft is constantly changing how it handles claims. Thus, I continuously update this article.
For example, for car accidents occurring starting May 1, 2019, Lyft made a huge change on its Florida insurance policy.
Lyft has apparently lowered its uninsured motorist insurance limit to $20,000 CSL. This is big news. And it’s bad for Lyft drivers and passengers.
What does CSL mean?
It means combined single limit. The CSL is the most uninsured motorist (UM) coverage that all the passengers and the Lyft driver can recover under Lyft’s insurance policy for one accident.
UM coverage only applies if someone other than the Lyft driver was at fault for causing the crash.
The new UM limit is now just $20,000. Thus, Lyft’s current insurance policy is much worse than the prior one that it had.
Because the prior Lyft policy had $250,000 in UM/UIM coverage. Lyft has now lowered its UM coverage by $230,000!
That’s a huge drop in UM coverage.
What stayed the same in Lyft’s new auto insurance policy?
Lyft kept the same insurance company: Greenwich Insurance Company.
Once again, UM/UIM coverage is uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist insurance coverage. There is still a $1 million CSL limit for liability coverage when the Lyft driver is “engaged in a ride”.
Lyft’s liability coverage pays if the Lyft driver’s negligence caused injuries to someone else.
Travelers Insurance Handles All Lyft Auto Insurance Claims (in the US)
Starting Feb 1, 2019, The Travelers Companies, Inc. is handling all U.S. auto insurance claim services for Lyft. I’ve settled over $450,000 in personal injury claims with Travelers. Thus, I know a thing or two about how Travelers handles accident claims.
For Lyft, I think that Travelers is just acting as a third party administrator. I don’t believe that Travelers actually insures Lyft vehicles.
I’ll explain this in detail in a bit.
That’s not it…
I’ll share must-know tips on dealing with York Risk Services, and Steadfast Insurance company. You’ll also hear about settlements and claims with Lyft’s insurance company, Greenwich Insurance Company.
