Stockbridge Taxi Accident Attorney
When you need to get where you’re going without the hassle of driving yourself, parking, fighting traffic, and doing all the rest of it, a taxi is the way to go. Sitting back and allowing your professional driver to ferry you to your destination is a true luxury. If, however, you are injured in a taxi accident, the stakes are high, and you need an experienced Stockbridge taxi accident attorney on your side.
The Taxi Driver
Your taxi driver has a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and is a professional driver with the experience and skill this requires. Professional drivers are also held to more stringent safety rules and regulations. While taxi driver negligence is often the cause of taxi accidents, the taxi company itself can also play a role.
The Taxi Company
Taxi companies bear considerable responsibility when it comes to preventing taxi accidents, and these responsibilities extend to all the following:
- Hiring safe, reliable taxi drivers
- Maintaining their fleet of cabs in safe working order
- Implementing regular maintenance and safety checks
- Hiring well-qualified mechanics
- Not pushing their drivers to overperform by putting in more hours than is safe behind the wheel (as guided by state and federal hours-of-service restrictions)
Failure to meet these important standards can cause or contribute to life-threatening taxi accidents.
