Allstate and Liberty Mutual provide Lyft driver insurance in several states

The insurers are offering coverage to the rideshare company’s drivers in states including California. Lyft driver insurance is now available in a handful of different states through Allstate and Liberty mutual, including in California and Texas. Effective as of the start of this month, Allstate has started selling this commercial auto coverage. October 1 brought Allstate’s Lyft driver insurance to California Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio and West Virginia. The policies are issued by an Allstate subsidiary called North Light Specialty Insurance Co and are managed by Allstate Business Insurance. This commercial auto coverage is provided specifically throughout the Lyft trip’s entire cycle. It begins when a driver turns on the app, continues through until they pick up their customer, and runs until the completion of the trip. Allstate automatically protects riders at no additional cost when they are in a Lyft driver’s vehicle. The extent of the coverage varies from one state to the next and from one period of engagement to the next. This may extend to property damage and bodily injury liability, uninsured/underinsured motorist liability, collision, and comprehensive coverage. It is subject to deductibles, policy terms and conditions. Until now, Lyft driver insurance has essentially meant a reliance on a personal auto policy. That coverage is still applicable when the driver is offline or has not turned on the app. Some Allstate customers who drive for transportation network companies (TNC) also add additional ridesharing coverage, for instance the Ride for Hire coverage through Allstate. That protects them above and beyond what their personal auto policy would provide and what TNC commercial coverage protects. Drivers in Arizona, Michigan, New Mexico, Texas and Utah can now purchase their rideshare coverage through Liberty Mutual Insurance. That insurer’s program provides coverage specific to the needs of Lyft drivers within those states from the moment the app turns on to the moment it turns off. Lyft vice president of risk, Curtis Scott, explained that the new Allstate and Liberty Mutual Lyft driver insurance policies are a reflection of the rideshare company’s efforts to widen their coverage partnerships and form an auto carrier panel that will make it possible for the company to make sure there is claims handling specifically for this unique type of operation.
