Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit Against Taxicab Company for Injuries Suffered

The vast majority of auto accident cases including taxi accidents are based on a negligence cause of action. There are several elements which need to be presented to the court in order to prove negligent or wrongful acts on the part of the taxi cab driver and operators.

(1) A duty of care exists between the liable party and the injured victim.

(2) The liable party breached its duty of care.

(3) The breach of the duty of care resulted in the accident.

(4) The accident caused significant bodily harm to the victim.

An expert attorney who has experience in taxi cab lawsuits can help you prove these four elements in a court of law

Minimum Insurance Limits for Taxicab Operators in the State of California: Taxi Operators require a commercial insurance policy in order to be able to conduct their operations in the states.
