In Ontario, we all happen to drive or ride in a car, along with other means of transportation, everyday. We are often busy in our day-to-day lives commuting from home to work and vice versa, making us unaware how dangerous automobiles can be and how often a serious car accident could occur.
When we travel through Uber or Lyft, we often neglect the fact that these drivers may too get involved in an accident along the way. If you were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle and you were involved in a car accident, you are eligible to seek different Accident Benefits, such as:
- Income replacement benefits
- Medical and rehabilitation benefits
- Non-earner benefits
- Attendant care benefits
If you do not have your own car insurance policy and you were a passenger of a vehicle providing transportation services, you may seek benefits for recovery through the insurance company provided to the driver by Uber or Lyft.
