Being injured in a taxi wreck is a scary situation. But you can be compensated for your suffering when you work with a San Diego taxi crash attorney from our firm.
When you decide to take a ride in a taxi, you probably expect the driver to operate with extreme caution while you’re in the vehicle. That’s because it’s the taxi driver’s duty to transport you safely to your destination. Sometimes, though, taxi drivers don’t drive with care, and you could be injured as a result of their carelessness.
If you were injured in a taxi-involved accident and you believe it was due to negligence on the part of the driver, contact a San Diego taxi accident lawyer with our office right away. We advocate for the victims of taxi accidents, and we will fight to see that you are fully compensated for your injuries.
Taxis are vehicles just like passenger cars and trucks. Human beings drive them, which means accidents will happen. Even so, taxi drivers are held to an even higher standard of care than the average person. That’s because they are providing a service and are expected to get you safely from point A to point B.
If even a small amount of carelessness is found on the part of your taxi driver, the driver and the taxi company could be held financially accountable for your injuries. Recklessness on the part of the driver or the taxi company can cause serious wrecks in San Diego in several ways. A few examples are detailed below:
No matter what kind of accident you’re involved in, your life is likely to be impacted by the situation, at least for a while. The best way to move past the incident is to get the compensation you need. That way, your finances won’t be hurt by these less-than-ideal circumstances.
With most accidents, you will exchange insurance information with the other party, fault will be determined, and either your insurer or the other driver’s insurance company will pay out on a claim. With taxis, it’s a little different. The driver’s company will likely have a large insurer that will do everything it can to avoid a payout.
Taxi insurers may try to contact you and record your statement, attempting to get you to say something that will lower the value of your claim. Hire a San Diego taxicab crash attorney who can help fight the taxi company’s insurer. We can also speak with all parties on your behalf so they won’t be able to trick you into saying the wrong thing.
If a taxi was involved in the accident that injured you, you probably have questions about how to recover compensation. Whether you were a passenger in the taxi or the driver in the other car, we can help.
