Have you been injured while riding in a Dallas-area taxi? Were you hit by a Yellow Cab driver?
Taxicabs are becoming a common means of transportation in Dallas. Whether you’re a pedestrian or a passenger, if you’ve been injured in a Dallas-Fort Worth taxicab accident, you need an experienced car accident lawyer.
Taxi cab accidents may happen due to different reasons. Some of these include:
- Inattentiveness on the driver’s part
- Fatigued taxi drivers
- Lack of adequate training
- Drunk taxi drivers
- Rushing to pick up more customers
- General recklessness.
Insurance companies are usually quick to interview victims of taxi cab accidents so they can find evidence which they can use to bring down the amount they’re supposed to pay after an accident. Taxi companies and their insurance providers deal with injury claims on a daily basis. They know what tactics work when it comes to car accident claims. You do not. This is why you need an attorney. Car accident attorneys work on a contingency-fee basis, so there is NO risk and no cost to the victim.
The question taxicab insurance (or self insurance) is a hot topic in Dallas. Yellow Cab recently came under fire for violating Dallas’ insurance requirements for taxi cabs for over 10 years! In Dallas, cab companies are required to carry $500,000 of insurance, and are not allowed to self-insure. Yellow Cab was found to have self-insured $250,000 of that for over a decade. This means that they were allowed to deny claims, instead of a 3rd-party insurer (an obvious conflict of interest). As of late 2013, they are (reportedly) properly insured.
