Columbia Taxi Accident Lawyer

Taxis shuttle both visitors and residents around Columbia for a reasonable fee. No one hails a taxi expecting to get into an accident, but taxi cabs are no different than other vehicles on the road, and the risk of an accident is always present. If you were hurt in a taxicab accident, you need an established law firm to represent you in settlement negotiations. Call The Stanley Law Group today to schedule an appointment with a Columbia taxi accident lawyer. Let us review all your legal options, including whether to submit a claim on the taxi’s liability insurance policy.

Liability for a Taxi Accident

Liability is the legal term for responsibility. It is critical to identify who caused your accident so that we know who to sue. The following are the most common liable parties:

  • Taxi driver. Your driver possibly drove negligently. Speeding, illegal passing, following too closely, and distracted driving are some of the reasons cabbies get involved in wrecks. The taxi driver should carry insurance to cover a collision.
  • Taxi company. The company is liable whenever their employees get into a crash while on the job. But the taxi company could have independent liability for negligent hiring or supervision. All taxi companies have liability policies, which can pay a settlement for your injuries.
  • Another motorist. Your taxi driver might not be to blame. Instead, another driver might have crashed into you. This driver might have refused to yield or driven in a distracted manner. In that situation, you’ll need to submit a claim on the driver’s insurance for compensation.
  • Other parties, like the city for constructing a work zone improperly or a mechanic for performing negligent repairs on the taxi, causing it to become unmanageable.

Our clients often reach out to our firm from their hospital bed. They don’t know who is to blame for the accident, but they have questions. We are happy to take your call.

If hired, we can investigate your accident to uncover fault. We might interview witnesses, including your taxi driver, as well as inspect the vehicles involved in the crash. We can also search for video which might have recorded the collision.

Once we identify fault, we are in a strong position to negotiate for compensation. Our clients deserve monetary damages for their medical needs, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Every case is unique, and there’s no “average settlement” which applies to all cases. Let us review the facts and push for the most compensation the law allows.
