The original concept of rideshare services like LYFT is almost revolutionary in its simplicity. LYFT allows people to make a little bit of extra money by using their car to provides transportation services at a lower cost than traditional taxicabs or livery services. In a perfect world, LYFT represents the ideal between providing service and value. That’s probably why LYFT is so popular in Bessemer.
Unfortunately, there is rarely if ever such thing as a perfect world. Although most LYFT trips are made successfully without a hitch, some of those rides are bound to result in car accidents. When LYFT accidents happen, the fact that one of the drivers was working for a third party can complicate matters. That’s why your next, and best move, after a Bessemer LYFT accident might be calling an attorney to protect your rights.
Call Cory Watson Attorneys After Your LYFT Accident
If you’ve been injured in an accident with a LYFT driver in Bessemer, you need to consider your next steps very carefully. It’s a sad reality that the at fault driver’s insurance company won’t be looking out for you.

How Much Is My Bessemer LYFT Accident Case Worth?
First, you must understand that just like you are an individual, unlike any other person, the facts in your case are unique. That means before we can determine the potential value of your case, we need to sit down and consult with you about the facts in your case.
What factors impact the potential value of your case? Injury accident victims typically incur expenses along their road to recovery from the accident. If your LYFT accident was caused by driver negligence, the expenses you incur post-accident are known as recoverable damages. Examples of recoverable damages after a LYFT accident include, but are not limited to the following:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Cost of on-going care (e.g., physical therapy)
- Property damage (if your car or other property was damaged in the accident)
The potential value of your case goes up at a rate directly proportional to the amount of your losses.
How does LYFT Driver Insurance Work?
Although LYFT drivers are considered private contractors, they are still required to carry insurance that covers them when they drive for the company.
Usually, LYFT insurance has the following coverage limits:
- $50,000 max per person for bodily injuries
- $100,000 maximum per accident for bodily injuries
- $25,000 per accident for property damage
This may sound like a lot, however if there were multiple parties involved in your accident or severe damage, these coverage limits may not be sufficient compensation in your case. Cory Watson Attorneys will pursue the liable parties for the full extent of your damages, even if they exceed the minimum coverage limits.

How Much does Cory Watson Attorneys Charge to Represent Clients?
No one expects to be injured in a car accident, which means most people don’t have money laying around to pay for medical and legal bills after being hurt in an accident. Cory Watson Attorneys understands this, and more importantly, we believe our clients should be focused on recovering from their accident, not how they’re going to pay us.
That’s why our firm takes LYFT accidents on a contingency basis. When we take your LYFT case on a contingency basis, it means we don’t bill you for our legal services until after we collect recoverable damages in your case. If Cory Watson Attorneys is unable to reach a settlement, win a verdict or collect damages in your case, you won’t receive a bill from our firm.
Don’t delay on taking legal action! There are time limits to pursue legal action. For personal injuries, it is two years from the time of the accident that you can pursue legal action per AL Code § 6-2-38.
