Causes of Taxi Accidents

Taxi accidents in Illinois can happen for many reasons. Common causes include aggressive driving, often due to tight schedules or the pressure to pick up more passengers. Distracted driving is another significant factor, as taxi drivers may use mobile devices or deal with fare transactions while driving. Inadequate vehicle maintenance can lead to malfunctions, increasing the risk of accidents.

Weather conditions, especially during Illinois's harsh winters, contribute to slippery roads and reduced visibility. Speeding in adverse weather can easily lead taxi drivers to crash.

Fatigue is also a concern, as taxi drivers may work long hours, impacting their alertness. The dense urban traffic in cities like Chicago can lead to congestion and frequent stops, increasing the likelihood of collisions.

When a taxi driver or another party causes your accident, seeking legal counsel from an Illinois taxi accident lawyer can help determine liability and pursue rightful compensation for your injuries and damages through the proper channels.

Liability for Taxi Accidents

Attorney Matthew Dolman with his team

Determining liability in taxi accidents involves assessing various factors, including driver negligence, vehicle maintenance, and adherence to traffic laws. Our experienced lawyers investigate and unravel the complexities of these cases.

If the taxi driver is at fault due to reckless driving, distraction, or fatigue, we meticulously gather evidence to establish negligence. Sometimes, liability may extend to the taxi company if we identify inadequate maintenance or negligent hiring practices.

Our legal team comprehensively investigates each case to pinpoint responsible parties and build a strong claim. We advocate for clients, negotiating with the proper insurance companies or pursuing litigation to ensure fair compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and other damages.

Trust our dedicated team to guide you through the legal process, providing support, resources, and tenacious representation to pursue justice after a taxi accident.
