Georgia Law on Recovering for Lyft Accidents

Georgia law requires Lyft to provide insurance coverage during different periods of a ride:

Period 1: When the Lyft app is on, and the driver is waiting for a ride request, a lower level of coverage is provided.

Period 2: From accepting a ride request to picking up the passenger, Lyft provides increased coverage.

Period 3: While the passenger is in the Lyft vehicle, the highest level of coverage is in effect.

Georgia follows a modified comparative negligence rule, allowing injured parties to recover damages as long as their fault doesn’t exceed 50%. However, their compensation is reduced proportionally to their fault percentage.
