Taxi Cab Accident

Whether you use a taxi cab nearly everyday as your main source of transportation or less frequently, you may not think twice about the potential danger. Unfortunately, taxi cab accidents occur on a daily basis.

Some of the most common types of injuries seen in taxi cab accidents include whiplash injuries, cuts, bruises, broken bones, and trauma to the face or head. If the passengers do not wear seat-belts, these injuries can be greatly increased.

There are two types of taxi cab accidents, one being if a taxi cab hits your car. The other, if you are a passenger inside a taxi cab that hits another vehicle. In both instances, you can make a car accident claim for your injuries.

The Taxi Cab Hits Your Car

If you are involved in an accident with a taxi cab, this is considered a two-car accident case. If you are making a liability claim against the taxi cab, you must be able to prove that the other driver is at fault and show proof of injury. If you can prove that the other driver was negligent, you have a high chance of winning your case.

You Are A Passenger In The Taxi Cab

If you are involved in an accident as the passenger of taxi cab, this is considered a passenger accident case. The driver of the taxi cab, or the driver of the other vehicle involved is liable for this type of accident.
