How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help With Your Mobile Taxi Accident Case
Cabs are still a convenient way for people to get around the Mobile area.
Even though taxis are generally a safe way to get around, you still run the risk of being involved in a car accident.
Taxi accident victims are often entitled to compensation–whether they were a passenger, a driver of another vehicle, or even simply crossing the street as a pedestrian.
It can be difficult to get the compensation you deserve after a taxi accident–even if it’s clear the accident wasn’t your fault. Taxi accident cases often involve multiple parties. No one will want to shoulder the blame on their own. You’ll have to have proof to get the money you need.
A skilled Mobile personal injury lawyer can help with every aspect of your claim. At Lattof & Lattof, P.C., our lawyers will:
- Investigate the circumstances of the accident
- Identify every potentially responsible party
- Bring in experts who can testify about what really caused the crash
- Demand compensation from each responsible party
- Handle all negotiations with the insurance company, taxi company, and defense lawyers
Our lawyers have been fighting to protect accident victims across Mobile since 1952. Together, we have more than 100 years of experience handling cases like yours. You can trust that we’ll put the full weight of that experience to work for you.
To get started, all you have to do is reach out to our legal team in Mobile, AL. We’re always ready to take your call.
Common Causes of Taxi Accidents in Mobile
Taxi drivers get paid by the ride. Because of that, they’re often in a hurry to get from point A to point B. Some of the most common causes of taxi accidents in Mobile include:
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving
- Road rage
- Unsafe passing
- Failure to yield
- Running a red light or stop sign at an intersection
- Fatigued driving
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
Taxis are considered common carriers under Alabama law. That means they have a heightened duty of care. In other words, they’re expected to be especially cautious when driving passengers for profit. If you were hurt in a taxi accident and want to learn more about your right to compensation, give us a call today.
We’ll do everything we can to get to the bottom of what caused your accident.
Who Might Be Liable For My Taxi Accident Injuries?
Even if the taxi driver caused the accident, others might share legal responsibility. Potentially responsible parties may include:
- The taxi company that owns the cab
- Other at-fault drivers
- Pedestrians and bicycle riders
- Government agencies
- Employers of negligent drivers
- The manufacturer of a defective taxi part
The taxi company that owns the cab has duty to make sure the taxi driver is adequately trained and licensed for the job. The company also has a duty to maintain the cab in a reasonably safe condition.
Management errors often contribute to taxi accidents–and the company itself can be held liable under employment law theories.
