Taxicab Accidents

Taxicabs and other common carriers are a great convenience for transit across many cities and towns in Illinois and Wisconsin. Taxis provide an important means of access to airports as well as transportation for people who don’t drive due to disability, age, or other reasons.

Even skilled cab drivers can perform their work negligently and recklessly, especially after long hours behind the wheel. Carelessness, inattentiveness, speeding, and aggressive driving tactics such as cutting off drivers and weaving through traffic all pose safety risks to taxi cab passengers.

As with automobile accidents, taxicab crashes and accidents lead to an array of severe injuries including head injuries, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, burns and many internal injuries. Passengers also suffer injuries while entering and exiting cabs.

ZRFM’s personal injury lawyers and their experts can thoroughly and immediately investigate the taxicab accident that caused your personal injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one. We are familiar with the tactics employed by insurance companies and taxicab businesses to avoid full accountability for the injuries their passengers incur. Once our experienced trial lawyers are fully prepared for court, we can advise you on the reasonableness of any settlement offers.
