Jonesboro Georgia Taxi Accident Attorney
When you hail a taxi, you’re thinking about all that convenience – not about being injured in a taxi accident. If a taxi driver’s negligence, however, does leave you injured in an accident, you’re facing not only considerable losses but also a challenging claims process ahead. Fortunately, however, an experienced Jonesboro taxi accident attorney has the skill and legal insight to help.
Taxi Drivers Are Professional Drivers
It’s important to recognize that taxi drivers are professional drivers, which means they’ve been issued a Georgia commercial driver’s license (CDL) and have the experience and driving skills to back this up. As such, taxi drivers are required to adhere to more stringent safety regulations. These include a zero-tolerance policy in relation to impaired driving and strict hours-of-service guidelines.
The Losses You Suffer
If you’ve been injured by a taxi driver’s negligence, your complete range of losses (or legal damages) should be addressed in your accident claim, including all the following categories:
- Property damage to your vehicle (if you were not a passenger in the taxi)
- Your medical bills, which can stretch to future related medical expenses
- Your lost wages and any decrease in your earning potential into the future
- Your physical and psychic pain and suffering, which – although it is more difficult to quantify – can be very damaging and should not be ignored
