Taxi Accident Lawyers in California

The taxicab industry is still booming despite its recent decreases from the popularity of ridesharing apps like Uber and Lyft. Hundreds of thousands of taxis roam the roadways of California, posing accident risks on and off the clock. There are two types of taxi accidents you might find yourself in: one in which you’re a passenger of the taxi or one in which a taxi driver strikes your vehicle. Either way, learn your rights and options according to our firm’s specialists.

Understanding Taxicab Accident Liability

The taxi industry is complex, with many variations of the standard business model. Some taxi companies own the cabs and employ drivers that rent the vehicles. Others hire drivers that own their own cabs. Understanding who is liable for a crash can be tricky. It may be the driver, the company, both, or a third party. Say, for example, that your accident occurred due to a distracted taxi driver. The driver may have caused the crash, but the taxi company may be liable if the driver was acting within the scope of his or her job at the time of the collision. In this case, you may be able to sue the driver and the company.

Some taxicab accident injuries do not stem from the fault of the driver or the taxi company, but a third party. This may be another driver that slams into your taxi, the manufacturer of a defective seatbelt, or the company responsible for maintaining the cab. In a third-party lawsuit, you may still be able to hold the taxi driver or company partially responsible.

Making a claim for a taxi accident can be difficult, as you may not know who to contact or hold liable for your damages. No matter who is at fault, you may be eligible to recover for your accident-related injuries.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law. What made my experience excellent was (i.e. head attorney being accessible to talk to and he answered all my questions and concerns, sensitive and thorough personel who completed in home intake & follow up process, being connected immediately to quality Physicians who addressed my injuries and recovery process, clear contract-read throughly to ensure its something you can commit to). Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra

What to Do After a Taxi Accident

After a taxi accident, gather as much information as possible. Get the name of the taxi company and the driver, as well as that of any other drivers or bystanders involved in the collision. Take photos of the taxi, the street, your injuries, and your vehicle if applicable. Get the names and contact information of any eyewitnesses. Their testimony can be of significant help in the future during fault investigations. Seek medical attention right away to diagnose and treat any injuries. In a collision while you were in another car, file a claim with the taxi company’s insurer.

If you get into an accident in which a taxi runs into your vehicle, you may have to face allegations from the taxi company or its insurer that you were at least partially responsible for the crash. The taxi company may claim that you were negligent, and that you caused the collision. If that is the case, you need a team of experienced attorneys to help you prove otherwise. California is a pure comparative negligence state. This means that a party can still recover even if it was partially responsible for an accident. In the event that you were partially at fault, do not assume this means you are ineligible for compensation. Talk to an attorney.

An attorney can help you negotiate a settlement with an insurance company or take your case to trial if necessary. Arash Khorsandi and his attorneys will listen to your individual goals for a claim and do what we can at Arash Law to make them happen. Whether that’s a quick settlement with an insurer or a trial in front of a judge, we can help. You may simply need help speaking with a taxi company’s major insurance company. These conversations can be daunting and result in you saying something that hurts your chances of receiving a settlement. Our lawyers can take over communication with insurers on your behalf.

Thank You, We’ll contact you shortly.
