People injured in accidents involving taxis may believe that they have no recourse; taxis, after all, seldom carry significant liability insurance. What injured individuals may not know, however, is that they may be covered under the PIP coverage in their own auto policies. It is important to speak with a lawyer well-versed in the intricacies of Massachusetts auto insurance to learn about eligibility for compensation after injuries caused by a taxi cab.
The Cambridge trial lawyers at Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry help people determine their eligibility for claims after a taxi accident. We evaluate all the insurance coverage involved- – the policies of the taxi company, the victim's policy and, when appropriate, the property owner's coverage. We investigate the matter thoroughly, often calling upon our well-regarded network of experts and specialists in fields such as medicine, auto mechanics, safety and other areas to help determine liability and build strong cases.Causes of Taxi Accidents
Taxi accidents are like other auto accidents, caused by:
- Illegal use of cell phones by driver
- Speeding and violation of traffic laws
- Failure to properly maintain cabs
Negligent actions such as these result in injuries to pedestrians, passengers and other drivers. Our attorneys work closely with clients to master the details of the mass transit accident and learn about our clients' needs and goals.
