Jackson Taxi Accident Attorney

Who Is at Fault?
Your taxi accident claim will hinge on who caused the accident in the first place.
The Taxi Driver
The taxi driver involved is a professional driver who is held to more stringent safety restrictions and who is covered by the taxi company’s insurance provider. If the taxi driver is at fault, your claim will very likely go through the taxi company’s coverage. Driving is an immense responsibility, but taxi drivers shoulder an even heftier burden that requires them to pull in and out of traffic often, make frequent stops, interact with dispatch, and more. Those taxi drivers who aren’t up to the task can cause dangerous taxi accidents.
The Taxi Company
The taxi company bears additional responsibilities that include:
- Maintaining their fleet of taxis in good working order
- Hiring safe and experienced drivers
- Hiring experienced and well-qualified mechanics and providing them with the quality tools and parts they need to get the job done right
- Not pushing its drivers to put in more hours behind the wheel than it is safe (or legal) to do
