Orange County Taxi Accident Lawyer
Taxi accidents are complicated, but an Orange County taxicab crash lawyer can untangle your case and win you the compensation you deserve.
Getting in a car with another driver means you’re putting your trust in that person and your safety in his or her hands. When a driver betrays that trust, you could end up with serious injuries.
A cab can be a convenient way to get around, but traffic conditions and the driver’s own actions could endanger you. When you’re injured in a taxicab, you may need some legal help as you recover from the accident.
After your crash, an Orange County taxi accident lawyer can get you back on your feet with the compensation you need. Fighting for compensation after your taxi accident can be difficult on your own, but with our team behind you, you can rest assured that you’ve got a solid shot at full compensation.
Fault in Orange County Taxi Accidents
After a taxi accident in Orange County, you’ll need to move fast to prove liability in order to ensure that you receive the damages you are entitled to. But who is responsible for your damages?
The obvious answer would be the taxi driver, who might have caused the accident through his or her own negligence. Unfortunately, most cab crashes are not so simple.
Chances are you’ll be going beyond the driver when you sue. Rather, you may be suing the taxi company for the negligence of the employee. Most companies are held under the concept of “vicarious liability,” which means that, if their employees injure someone within the scope of their employment, the company is liable.
For example, if you’re in an accident with a taxi driver who is off duty, he or she will act as an individual. If the cab driver was on the clock when he or she struck your car or crashed with you in the cab, however, the company could be liable for your resulting injuries and damages.
Recovering Your Compensation
Determining fault for your accident is one step in the process of getting full compensation. Before filing your claim, you should also total the costs of your accident. A taxicab crash can be a strain on your bank account, your body, and your mind—don’t forget to consider each of these areas before you file. While some of these damages may be difficult to put a monetary value on, an attorney can help.
The following is just a sample of the damages you could receive compensation for in the aftermath of your Orange County cab accident:
- Medical expenses
- Emotional trauma
- Household services for loss of mobility or independence
- Lost wages
- Future surgeries or therapy for your injuries
