Taxicab drivers operate under tremendous stress: they’ve got to be quick to step on the gas, daring in maneuvering around traffic, make frequent stops and starts, drive in all kinds of weather and deal with traffic jams, long shifts, and aching backs. Drivers are rewarded for hustle and risk-taking. For this reason, they experience more than their share of accidents.
Some common accidents involving taxicabs include:
At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., our Kansas City taxi accident attorneys represent passengers who are injured in cabs, pedestrians who are knocked down by cabs and taxi drivers who are injured in the course of duty.
Taxicab injury cases have special challenges, especially identifying the negligent party. Cab companies often have complicated ownership structures, often involving out-of-state parties. You need an attorney who is experienced in this kind of detective work, who can bring negligent parties to the table.
Some taxi companies have teams of highly paid attorneys who do nothing but fend off injury claims. Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. is comfortable going up against these heavy hitters, not afraid to go after the powerful and hold them accountable for negligent acts.
Our firm also wants to hear from cab drivers who have been the victims of crashes and collisions or suffer from backaches and other injuries incurred during long stretches at the wheel. We file personal injury lawsuits, workers’ compensation claims and third-party suits on their behalf.
