Riverside Taxi Accident Lawyer
Getting injured in a taxicab crash entitles you to compensation from those responsible, but it can be difficult to determine who was at fault in these accidents. Get the compensation you deserve by working with a Riverside taxi accident lawyer.
While cab crashes are very similar to “normal” car wrecks, they have a number of factors that make them both different and more difficult to get compensated for. That said, the injuries you suffer in one of these collisions can be every bit as serious as any other accident, and you deserve to receive a full settlement when you weren’t at fault.
A Riverside taxi accident lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can make sense of this confusing and stressful situation. We put our clients’ wellbeing above all else, so while you focus on your recovery, you can rest easy knowing that we’ll be working to resolve your claim in the most successful way possible.
Liability and Taxicab Wrecks
As mentioned, determining fault is a complicated matter in taxicab accidents. This is because unlike passenger cars and motorcycles, taxis have multiple people and entities involved in their maintenance and operation. These might be private individuals, contractors, or large companies, but any number of them could have been responsible for causing your crash.
Your Riverside taxi accident lawyer will investigate the accident and identify the cause, which will then determine who needs to be named in your personal injury lawsuit. These are just a few of the parties that will need to be considered and how they might have played a role in what happened:
- Cab Driver – Speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence, drowsy driving
- Taxi Company – Negligent hiring, failing to maintain cabs to safe standards
- Taxicab or Part Manufacturer – Defective parts, tires, seat belts, or airbags
- Government Agencies – Dangerous road conditions, such as potholes and shoulder drop-offs
Settling Your Cab Crash Claim
Regardless of who the responsible party was, your final payout will probably come from an insurance company. No matter how compassionate or nice the insurance adjuster might seem, these professionals are not on your side. Insurance companies have one goal: maximize profits by paying you as little as possible.
A Riverside taxi accident lawyer from our firm can make certain that the settlement you receive is the largest possible for your case. We do this by building the strongest case possible, in addition to assessing the full value of your claim, which should include all of your current and future financial expenses and non-economic losses.
These damages could include any of the following items that apply to your particular taxicab crash:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and income
- Therapy and transportation costs
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost enjoyment of life
