Ontario Rideshare Accident Lawyer
Lyft and Uber services in Ontario are a convenient and popular way to get around town and a faster option than other forms of public transportation. Regardless of whether you’re a passenger, third-party driver, or a rideshare driver, a motor vehicle wreck that involves a rideshare company can result in catastrophic or life-altering injuries and significant damages. While Ontario rideshare drivers provide valuable services, negligent drivers can cause serious accidents that can be life-changing.
Should I Hire an Ontario Rideshare Accident Lawyer?
In California, rideshare drivers are considered independent contractors. If a rideshare driver causes a collision, the rideshare company isn’t vicariously liable for the actions of the driver since the driver isn’t considered an employee. However, this doesn't protect rideshare companies from liability entirely. Rideshare companies carry a one million dollar insurance policy to cover damages if an accident occurs when the driver is transporting passengers and the passengers are injured.
If a rideshare driver is off duty and uses their vehicle for personal purposes and causes an accident, the driver’s personal insurance policy will be used to cover the cost of damages. If a rideshare driver was working for a rideshare company at the time of the accident, the company’s insurance provider will cover the cost of damages.
As you can see, the rules surrounding liability in a rideshare accident can be complex and confusing. An Ontario personal injury lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys can help you prove liability and file a claim against the negligent rideshare driver. We understand the complex liability laws surrounding rideshare accidents and know how to thoroughly investigate a collision to determine who was liable and gather and analyze evidence that will allow us to build a strong case against them. Our accident injury lawyers will work tirelessly to help you recover the compensation you’re owed and hold the negligent party responsible for your losses.
Over the years, our personal injury attorneys have handled many rideshare accident claims that involve devastating injuries, such as:
- Lesiones cerebrales traumáticas (TBI)
- Latigazo cervical
- Conmociones cerebrales
- Daños en los tejidos blandos
- Lesiones en la espalda
- Lesiones en el cuello
- Huesos rotos
- Hemorragia interna
- Lesiones de cadera
- Soft tissue injuries
- Daños en la médula espinal
- Arm, leg, and wrist injuries
If a Lyft or Uber passenger or driver sustained a rideshare injury, they must seek legal counsel during this time to ensure their claim and rights are protected.
Who is Financially Responsible after a Lyft or Uber accident?
If another driver was negligent and caused an accident with a rideshare driver, that driver’s insurance will cover the cost of damages.
If the Lyft or Uber driver was logged into the rideshare app at the time of the accident, the rideshare company will cover the cost of damages not covered by the driver’s personal insurance.
If you were a rideshare driver and were responsible for a major accident as you were transporting a rideshare passenger, and that passenger was injured, your insurance policy will be used first to cover damages. Rideshare insurance policies will cover the remaining damages if you do not have enough insurance coverage.
If you were involved in a motor vehicle crash, you may be entitled to financial damages.

The aftermath of a motor vehicle collision can be devastating. An accident victim can sustain lasting injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, crush injury, spinal cord damage, internal injuries, burns, and more. An accident that results in severe injuries can also have emotional ramifications such as loss of quality of life, mental anguish, anxiety, and PTSD. A successful personal injury claim can reimburse you for these damages.
Wrongful Death Compensation Claims
If you lost a loved one in an Uber or Lyft accident due to a dangerous driver, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, funeral and burial costs, mental pain and suffering, loss of income, loss of care, love, guidance, and affection, and more.
