When you get in a taxi cab or limousine in Las Vegas, you trust your safety and your family or guests’ safety to the driver and their company. You trust that driver to be responsible and a safe driver. Unfortunately, this trust can be violated when you are in a taxi cab or limousine accident. If you have been injured through the negligence of a taxicab or limousine driver, you need a Las Vegas accident attorney with expertise in taxi and limousine crashes.
Taxi and limo drivers are only human, and therefore they are susceptible to making the same errors that other drivers would make. Driver distraction and fatigue cause a number of accidents. Other accidents are caused by drivers who don’t follow the rules of the road, speed, ignore stop signs and other signals, drive too close or pass in an unsafe way. Often, quick stops need to be made because Las Vegas has the added risk of pedestrians who are not paying attention, impaired or both.
Taxi or Limo Company Negligence
Taxicabs and limousine companies have a responsibility to maintain their vehicles. Few fleets get as much use or wear and tear as a limo or cab. Vehicles are regularly or constantly in use with lots of short stops and starts. Add the dry and hot climate of Las Vegas to the mix and it is clear that poorly maintained vehicles will break down and can cause an accident.
Taxi or Limousine Accident Injuries
Victims of such accidents experience the same types of injuries as passengers in other vehicles, including back injuries, burns and abrasions, whiplash, broken bones and soft tissue damage. Many of these injuries can result in expensive medical bills as well as loss of income. If you are wondering if your driver or their company was negligent, Hale Injury Law can assess your situation and find out who was at fault.
