Calling a taxi is supposed to be a safe, easy way to get from one place to another. However, accidents happen in taxi cabs, the same as any other vehicle. A taxi accident can be more complicated than a standard car crash. If you have been injured in a taxi accident, call the auto accident lawyers at The Fang Law Firm in Denver for the dedicated legal assistance you need.
If there are multiple injured passengers in a taxi accident, the total value of the claim may exceed the availability of insurance coverage. This means that each injured person will have to settle for less than the value of his or her claim or hold the at-fault driver personally responsible outside of insurance coverage.
Taxi drivers dependent on driving a cab for their livelihood may be more inclined to fight back against a claim for damages. In two-vehicle accidents where both drivers may be at fault, insurers will dispute the extent of both drivers’ liability. They often play hardball, hoping you will give up and accept a less-than-favorable settlement. Our experienced Denver taxi accident attorney can investigate the accident to determine liability, negotiate skillfully with insurance companies on your behalf, and fight for your rights in court if necessary.
It is not uncommon for a taxi cab to be involved in an accident, particularly in larger cities. You may be riding as a passenger in a cab when it is involved in a collision or driving your own vehicle when a taxi hits you.
If you are hurt as a passenger of a taxi that is involved in a two-vehicle accident, you do not have to worry about proving liability. Either the taxi driver or the other driver will likely be deemed negligent. You can file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit against either or both drivers. It will be up to the drivers involved in the accident to sort out liability
If you are driving a vehicle that is hit by a taxi, you must prove liability to win your case. You are likely to win if you can show that the taxi driver was negligent. Proving liability involves showing:
If you sustained serious injuries, your damages may include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, loss of earning potential, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
