Find Out Who Caused Your Accident
To obtain compensation after a taxicab or private car service accident, an injured person (or his or her family) must first determine who was at fault. Any of the following parties may be responsible for your accident:
- The cab or private car service driver: If your cabbie's or private car service driver's reckless driving caused your accident, then he or she is to blame for your injuries. Additionally, if the cab driver or private car service driver was fatigued or under the influence of alcohol, we can help you file a lawsuit.
- Another driver: Did another driver rear-end your cab? If so, they may be responsible for your injury.
- The cab and private car service company: Taxicab companies and private car service companies have a responsibility to hire only drivers who are of age and have a license. In addition, companies must administer routine drug tests.
More than one party may have caused your accident. In some cases, both the driver and the cab or cab company or private car service company are to blame. Our firm has the experience, skill and knowledge to assist you in gathering evidence and identifying the responsible party or parties who caused your accident.
