You’ve been injured in a New Jersey Lyft accident—and you’re likely thinking: Now what?

In Lyft accident cases, the stakes are higher because New Jersey requires Lyft to provide $1.5 million in insurance coverage. Additionally, you might have to deal with multiple insurance companies, including:
Lyft drivers often use multiple ridesharing platforms to ensure a steady stream of business. This alone can create complications when it comes to recovering compensation from the Lyft insurance policy. Our New Jersey injury lawyers have the legal experience necessary to fight back against the tactics used by insurance companies to deny your claim.
At Team Law, our team of accident lawyers understands the evolving laws that now apply in Lyft accident cases. We also know that these new laws are subject to interpretation—meaning that the insurance companies are likely to challenge your right to compensation.

At Team Law, our accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means that you only pay us an attorneys’ fee if we win compensation in your case. You don’t have to pay us upfront.
Under New Jersey law, something known as a “limitation on lawsuit” clause in your car insurance policy can prevent you from suing for pain and suffering. Many New Jersey drivers elect this option in order to get lower car insurance rates. However, Lyft and other ridesharing services are exempt from the limitation on lawsuit provisions. After a Lyft accident, we may be able to obtain compensation for pain and suffering from the insurance company.
