Taxicab Accidents in San Diego, CA
Were You Injured in a San Diego Taxi Accident?
Taxicab accidents, unlike other car crashes, involve several extra parties, including the taxicab company, multiple insurance companies, other drivers and passengers, and the taxi driver. Any of these parties may have directly or indirectly caused the taxicab accident, which is why it is important to work with a lawyer who is experienced at investigating complex accidents when you have been injured in a San Diego taxicab collision.
California Taxicab Collisions Cause Serious Injuries
While California doesn't require a special license for taxi drivers, some local municipalities might impose their own driving requirements. Our taxicab accident lawyers will investigate a driver's history to evaluate whether the company engaged in negligent hiring of a potentially dangerous driver. Negligent hiring may form the basis of a personal injury lawsuit against the driver and the company following a serious taxicab collision.
Other causes of taxicab accidents with injuries include the following:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Intoxicated driving
- Negligent road or highway design
- Defective auto parts such as seat belts
