Rockdale County Taxi Accident Attorney

Rockdale County Taxi Accident Attorney

Taxis are the way to go when you’re out of town or simply want to leave the driving to a professional. Taxi accidents, however, are often quite complicated – and quite dangerous. When it comes to taxi accidents, liability does not always lie with the taxi driver alone. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a taxi accident, don’t delay consulting with an experienced Rockdale County taxi accident lawyer today.

Negligence and the Taxi Driver

Taxi drivers are professional drivers, which means they are governed by more restrictive safety rules and regulations. Transporting others is an immense responsibility, and taxi drivers are just as susceptible to all of the forms of negligence that other drivers are, including:

  • Impairment
  • Exhaustion
  • Excess speed and other forms of aggressive driving
  • Distraction

The Taxi Company’s Liability

The taxi company can also be found at fault for dangerous taxi accidents, and if the negligent taxi driver in question is an employee of the taxi company (rather than a contract worker), the taxi company’s insurance coverage will be invoked regardless of whether the driver or the taxi company is at fault. The taxi company is responsible for all of the following important safety factors:

  • Maintaining a safe fleet of cabs
  • Hiring safe, experienced, and reliable cabbies
  • Hiring experienced and appropriately licensed mechanics
  • Not pushing their cab drivers to overperform (beyond the bounds of safe driving or outside the limits of hours-of-service restrictions)
