Denver and Aurora Car Accident Attorney
Taxi cabs are usually a safe and convenient way to travel around Colorado. Whether you have had one too many drinks or simply wish to avoid the hassle of parking and driving, taking a taxi cab is a preferable way to travel. Unfortunately, taxi cab accidents do occur and when they do, they can leave victims with a variety of injuries and disabilities.
Colorado Taxicab Accidents
Taxi cab drivers are notorious for speeding, running lights, taking sharp turns and taking chances. Aggressive taxi drivers may take unnecessary risks in an effort to maximize their profits and turn over their passengers. In addition, many of these drivers may be overworked and suffering from driver fatigue. When you combine aggressive and fatigued taxi drivers with the unpredictable Colorado weather, you have a recipe for disaster.
If you have been injured in a taxi cab accident there are several things you should do to maximize your chances of receiving financial compensation for your injuries. Immediately following your accident, write down the name and contact number of the taxi cab driver, including the number of the vehicle and company. If there are any witnesses or other passengers, be sure to get their contact information as well. If you have a digital camera or a camera phone, be sure to take pictures of the accident scene and any conditions that may have contributed to your accident. Taxi cab companies often attempt to deny responsibility and deliberately try to dodge liability claims. Therefore, any information or evidence you can provide will only improve your chances of receiving the financial compensation you deserve.
If you or someone you love was injured in a taxi cab accident in Colorado, it is important to contact a Colorado personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will need to aggressively investigate your case to determine who the responsible parties are. If the taxi cab driver or the taxi cab company is to blame, your attorney will be able to discuss all of your legal options with you, so you can choose the legal pathway that is right for you.
