Grabbing a taxi is an excellent way to get around. If you’ve been injured by a taxi driver’s negligence, however, you’re in a challenging situation. While you focus on regaining your health and well-being, turn to an experienced Macon taxi accident attorney to fight for your legal rights and your rightful compensation.

Taxi Drivers

Taxi drivers are commercial drivers, which means that – in addition to the usual duty of care that every motorist owes everyone else on the road – they shoulder additional responsibilities. This includes having a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL) and adhering to more restrictive rules of the road, such as:

  • Hours-of service restrictions
  • Zero-tolerance in relation to alcohol and drugs
  • Heightened penalties for driving infractions

Taxi accidents are often the result of negligence on the part of the taxi driver, but the taxi company also bears considerable responsibility, including:

  • Hiring licensed taxi drivers who have the necessary experience and skill
  • Hiring licensed mechanics to work on their fleet of cabs
  • Maintaining their fleet of vehicles in safe working order

Your Losses

If you’ve been injured in a taxi accident, the losses (or legal damages) you face can be overwhelming, including:

  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Medical expenses (both current and those related to ongoing medical needs)
  • Lost earnings related to hours lost on the job
  • The physical and emotional pain and suffering you endure
