Taxi Cab Accidents

When an individual must arrive at a given destination but does not have use of a vehicle of his or her own, he or she may opt to take a taxi cab. Although cabs are a popular and convenient mode of transportation, there are certain risks that a rider should be aware of before hopping in. Taxi cab drivers must engage in responsible driving practices at all times and provide a safe environment for all patrons. When this is not done and an accident occurs, the cab driver may be held liable for any injuries you sustain as a result.

Though most cab companies are covered by insurance, they may still owe additional compensation to you if negligent behavior was at play, such as reckless driving or a DWI. These cases are often difficult to prove and will likely require the help of an experienced attorney.

If a Taxi Accident Occurs

If you are in a taxi cab accident, it is important to take the following steps immediately after the crash:

  • Document as much information about the cab and cab driver as you can. This should include the name of the driver, his or her telephone number, the cab registration number and the name and number of the cab company he or she works for.
  • Document the name and contact information of anyone else who was involved in the accident.
  • Document the name and contact information of any witnesses.
  • Take photos of the accident (a camera-phone will suffice).

As with any lawsuit, the individual circumstances must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. By consulting with an experienced attorney, you can help determine if you have grounds for a legal action.
