Henry County Taxicab Accident Attorney
When you’re away from home and/or out for the night, it’s great to leave the driving to the professionals – the taxicab drivers. When these professional drivers fail to live up to their considerable responsibilities as professional drivers, however, dangerous accidents can result. If a negligent taxicab driver leaves you injured, it’s important to have an experienced taxicab accident lawyer in Henry County in your corner.
Taxi Driver Negligence
Taxi drivers, as mentioned, are professional drivers who are – for obvious reasons related to safety – held to more restrictive guidelines, rules, and regulations, which makes taxi driver negligence that much more problematic. Such negligence can come in many forms, including:
- Impairment – When a taxi driver is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, he or she increases the risk that a life-threatening accident will transpire. The law has no patience with professional drivers who are impaired.
- Distraction – Taxi drivers have an important job to do, which is to ferry their passengers safely to their destinations, and this requires paying careful attention to maneuvering through traffic safely – with no room for outside distractions.
- Exhaustion – Taxi drivers make their living behind the wheel, and it can be tempting to continue driving after it is safe to do so (in relation to the driver’s level of exhaustion). This is why there are exacting hours-of-service restrictions in place for professional drivers like taxi drivers.
