Skilled and Compassionate Taxi Cab Accident Attorneys in Illinois

As a major tourist attraction and financial center, Chicago has thousands of taxi cabs on the road each day. When a passenger enters a taxi, they have the expectation and the right to receive a safe ride to their destination. Unfortunately, far too many cab drivers are overly aggressive and ignore the rules of the road. This puts their passengers and those they share the roads with at a much higher risk of injury. If you or someone you know has been injured in a taxi accident, it is important to speak with an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney, so you understand your rights and options.

Who is Responsible for Taxicab Accidents?

Responsibility for a taxi accident can be placed on the driver, the cab company, mechanic, auto parts manufacturer, or a combination of parties. While this means there are potentially several parties from which to draw from, it can also make it harder to collect.

Often, cab companies will try to place the blame entirely on the driver, who has his/her own insurer that is separate from the company. Another complicating factor is that many cab drivers are independent owner/operators, making them separate entities from the company they represent. Even if this is the case, cab companies may still share liability if they put undue pressure on the driver to complete his/her route.
