Taxi and Limo Accidents
In over 30 years of combined experience with motor vehicle accidents, our attorneys have handled many cases involving public or private transportation vehicles:
Metro bus, school bus and tour bus accidents
Taxicab, limousine and airport shuttle crashes
RTA rapid transit bus and light rail injuries
RR crossing accidents
We are familiar with many scenarios: public transport passengers injured in collisions with a car; automobile drivers injured in collisions with a bus; pedestrians or bicyclists hit by a bus or taxi; and taxi, bus or train drivers injured in on-duty crashes by the negligence of others.
Our personal injury lawyers are knowledgeable about the typical injuries, such as broken bones, head trauma and whiplash, and injuries to the face, chest or abdomen when vehicle occupants are thrown about at impact. Our goal is full compensation for medical care, lost wages and personal pain and suffering.
We also understand the unique legal and insurance issues in these cases, such as limited immunity of governmental entities or complex layers of ownership and liability on a private coach or taxi. For example, we have investigated product liability crashworthiness claims against the manufacturers of stretch limos, on behalf of teenage passengers injured in a crash on the way to prom.
