Taxi driving is one of the most dangerous professions in the United States. Day and night, these drivers are forced to deal with reckless motorists, deadly passengers, and hazardous road conditions. Plus, because these drivers are motivated by profit, they frequently engage in dangerous driving behaviors just to quickly cycle through customers. Who hasn't clenched the side of a cab because their driver is frantically weaving through traffic?

Pursue Compensation for Your Injuries
When a taxi accident occurs, it's not unusual for passengers to sustain severe and even catastrophic injuries. Recovering from these injuries may necessitate expensive surgeries and ongoing medical treatments. By taking legal action, you can hold multiple parties responsible for the financial and physical repercussions of your injuries.
Liable parties may include:
- The taxi driver
- The taxi company
- The automobile manufacturer
- The third-party driver
Without effective representation, you could encounter many legal difficulties on the path to compensation. For example, it's not unusual for insurance company adjusters to offer inadequate settlement amounts just to quickly close the case and save money. By accepting this offer, you legally waive your right to seek additional compensation in the future. In a worst-case scenario, this settlement won't cover your injury-related debts and you'll be forced to file for bankruptcy.
If your case is successful, you could be awarded the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Professional care costs
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Rehabilitation costs
- Non-economic damages
At Ahmad Law Firm, our resourceful lawyers can investigate the incident, research the taxi company, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. Our priority is to help you secure a beneficial settlement or verdict that truly reflects your financial and legal needs.
