Even with the rise of ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft, taxis are still a huge part of the transportation industry.
According to the Nevada Taxicab Authority, there were 1,387,115 total trips taken by taxis in Nevada during March 2019. With so many taxis on our roads, it shouldn’t be a surprise that motor vehicle accidents that involve taxis are a fairly common occurrence. How are these accidents different from normal car accidents?
Who is Liable in a Las Vegas Taxi Accident?
If you were injured in a taxi accident, there are many factors involved that are not an issue in a normal car accident case.
For example, a taxi cab driver is an employee of a taxi cab company. This means that taxi cab drivers are covered by the taxi cab’s insurance company. Your personal injury lawyer will have to know Nevada law as it relates to both personal injury and employer responsibility and be experienced dealing with multiple insurance companies.
A law firm that is experienced in working on taxi cab injury cases will also look into:
- What driver was doing at the time of accident?
- Whether the driver had the proper license?
- Whether taxi company had proper insurance coverage?
- Whether vehicle had a defect or was poorly maintained?
