Jonesboro Taxicab Accident Attorney
When you need a taxi, they offer an invaluable service. Taxi drivers are professional drivers who know their way around the city and can get you where you need to be without the hassle of having to negotiate a route, having to fight traffic, or having to deal with finding a parking spot. All of this convenience, however, can be quickly sidelined if an accident ensues. If a taxi driver’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, you shouldn’t wait to consult with a well-established Jonesboro taxicab accident lawyer.
Taxi Accidents Lead to Complicated Claims
Taxi drivers are professional drivers who are hired by taxi companies, which means that liability in the event of an accident can extend beyond the driver himself or herself. Taxi drivers are responsible for making frequent drop-offs and pickups, which increases the risk that accidents will happen in the first place. If you are injured in a taxi accident, the following factors are likely to complicate your claim:
- The taxi driver works for a taxi company that likely dictates how many hours he or she stays behind the wheel. Some unscrupulous taxi companies (and taxi drivers who set their own hours) are willing to push the boundaries of safety and to work beyond the carefully regulated hours-of-safety restrictions.
- The taxi company is motivated to turn a profit, which means it is likely invested in doing whatever it can do to help keep your settlement as low as possible.
- The taxi company has robust insurance coverage – along with other legal and financial resources – to help support its denial of fault.
