TAXI ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Experienced Taxi Accident
Attorney in Las Vegas

Take a walk down the Las Vegas Strip, and you’ll lose count of how many taxicabs you see. In a city that is centered on nightlife, entertainment, and parties, the taxi business thrives, as well as other modes of transportation, in an effort to limit the amount of intoxicated driving. The convenience of being able to hail a cab, whenever and wherever you are certainly has an appeal. 

Unfortunately, with the number of vehicles and people on the roads, taxi drivers, passengers, and others on the road, are not immune from the potential risk of motor vehicle accidents. If you have been involved in a taxi-related accident, regardless of if you were a passenger, or another driver on the road, you may be wondering what your next steps are. It can be challenging to figure out who is responsible and where to go from here. Let the Accident Attorneys at Eric Blank Injury Attorneys help you navigate these sometimes troubling waters. 

What Now? 

It is important to know that Nevada operates as an at-fault state. This means that whoever is at fault, or who caused the accident, is the responsible party. When responsibility and cause can be proven, this individual at fault is in charge of covering all expenses for the others involved. The difficulty comes in determining who was at fault and finding enough evidence to prove such.  

What Does This Mean for a Passenger? 

If you happen to be riding in a taxi at the time of an accident, and it was your driver’s fault for causing the collision, your injuries and damages should be covered by the taxi company’s insurance policy. Most taxi companies hold high standards for providing safe rides for their passengers, which means that they also provide coverage if this safety is somehow compromised. If you are the passenger of a taxi at the time of the accident, but it is another driver at fault, you should be covered by the responsible party’s insurance. 

What Does This Mean for Other Drivers? 

If you are driving, and happen to be involved in an accident with a taxi, and you are not at fault, it is the responsibility of the taxi driver, and should be covered either under the taxi company’s insurance policy, or the driver’s, depending on whether there was a passenger riding or not. In this scenario, pursuing a case often proceeds similar to any other motor vehicle collision.

Your Next Steps

Regardless of if you were a passenger, or another driver, if you have been involved in a taxi-related accident, it is essential to file a police report, receive the appropriate medical care, and takes notes and pictures of the entire scene. Be sure to take down the taxi driver’s information, and any other driver’s involved as well. Ask for verification of insurance, and take note of this information as well. Snap pictures of the cars involved, and of the license plates. It may also be advisable to contact the taxi company directly as well. The more information you gather, the easier it is to build a case.
