Don't Suffer the Financial Consequences of Negligence
Many taxi cab passengers have more pronounced personal injuries from an
accident than would passengers of a normal private vehicle. This is because
many occupants do not wear a seatbelt while riding in a cab, or because
the interior of a taxi car contains a partition that the occupants may
strike in an accident. Passengers in cabs can be injured due to negligent
operation of the cab, but other drivers of their personal vehicle can
be injured as well if a cab collides with their vehicle. In addition,
some cab accidents occur while you are entering or exiting the vehicle.
Injuries that are common in taxi accidents include:
The personal injury claim for a taxi cab accident may seem like it would
be the same as any other personal injury claim, but it is not. When you
have been injured due to a cab driver’s negligence, you will not
be dealing with a private person’s auto insurance company. Instead,
you will be up against the cab company and their liability insurance company,
who will try to minimize and delay your settlement.
