Understanding Taxi Cab Accidents in Henderson
Driving a taxi cab is a physically taxing and highly competitive way to make a living. Fatigue, stress, and distractions can be a dangerous cocktail on the road. And when you’re driving for long hours, you’re bound to face these issues frequently.
Here are some common reasons why taxi accidents happen in Henderson:
- Stopping the vehicle abruptly while being hailed on the road
- Poor maintenance
- Aggressive weaving through traffic
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Drowsiness due to long shifts and lack of sleep
- Hitting passengers while picking them up or while they’re exiting the cab

Understanding Liability in Taxi Cab Accidents
Proving liability can be a lot more complex in taxi cab accidents compared to regular car accidents. There could be parties liable for the accident that weren’t even present at the accident scene.
Maybe a taxi cab company hired a poorly trained driver. Maybe a maintenance company that takes care of these vehicles did a sloppy job. Or perhaps there was a manufacturing defect. You’ll have to work extra hard to gather evidence against multiple parties and negotiate with them.
The Key Role of Establishing Liability
Your lawyer will lead a detailed investigation of the accident to get to the bottom of things. They’ll gather your police accident report, medical records, surveillance footage, eyewitness statements, cab company hiring and maintenance records, and anything else to strengthen your claim.
Accurately determining and proving liability is the key to a successful taxi cab accident claim.
Damages and Compensation
Your settlement depends on the severity of your injuries and the coverage of liable parties. We have helped multiple accident victims walk away with six-figure and seven-figure settlements.
Here are the types of damages you can seek compensation for after a taxi cab accident:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Property damage
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
