Many people do not realize that when they get into a taxi, regardless of the distance they are traveling, they may find themselves in a situation where they need an experienced taxi accident attorney to help them with the aftermath of an accident involving a taxi.
Thousands of people are injured in accidents involving taxis every year. These people include passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and other motorists. Serious injuries and sometimes even death are the result of accidents involving taxis. The laws governing accidents involving taxis are often complicated and differ from state to state. If you are not an educated, trained, and experienced taxi accident attorney, it will likely be a challenge to try to protect yourself or a loved one.
If you have been in the unfortunate situation of being injured in an accident involving a taxi, or if someone close to you has died as a result of this type of accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. If you are concerned about medical bills, loss of earnings and/or a change in mobility and/or ability, you may find it helpful to talk to an experienced taxi accident attorney.
If you are in pain and suffering because of the loss of a loved one to an accident involving a taxi, you should be able to focus on healing and not having to deal with this on your own. While nothing can take away the physical and/or emotional pain that an accident can cause, talking to a taxi accident attorney may help alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that you are feeling.
Taxi Accident Injuries
Injuries that people sustain from an accident involving a taxi are often similar to those sustained in any automobile crash. They can be anywhere from minor to severe, and can even cause death. Any time you are in a car accident, it is a good idea to have a doctor check you out. Some injuries such as concussions or internal bleeding do not always present themselves with symptoms that the injured person is aware of. If you or someone close to you has been in an accident involving a taxi, it may be helpful to contact a taxi accident attorney to help you decide what steps you need to take to protect your and your family’s rights.
Common injuries that taxi cab accidents cause include but are not limited to:
- Internal bleeding
- Broken and fractured bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries (often referred to as Traumatic Brain Injuries, TBI)
- Serious cuts and lacerations
- Torn muscles and/or ligaments
- Emotional trauma
The above are just some of the common injuries people sustain from accidents involving taxi cabs. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident to ensure that injuries are properly diagnosed and treated. It is important to the health of the injured and to the health of your potential case to have an official record that connects you to injuries you sustained during a taxi accident.
