We will put together the information necessary to hold the driver or even the cab company accountable.
Cab Accident Attorney in Clark County, Nevada
Las Vegas taxis are in roughly 2,500 car accidents every year. These incidents are responsible for countless injuries to pedestrians, bicyclists and passengers. To pursue your claim, we will need to collect several pieces of information, such as the following:
- What was the driver doing at the time of the incident?
- Did the vehicle have a defect?
- Was the vehicle poorly maintained?
- Did the driver have the proper license?
Each of these will illustrate liability and negligence, which are key to securing damages in your personal injury claim. You may be entitled to significant compensation, as these incidents can lead to tens of thousands of dollars in treatment and rehabilitation. We also recognize that you may have had to take time off of work, missing out on a paycheck while battling the emotional struggles associated with recovery.
Nevada is a tort law state, which means that if you have been involved in an accident that involves distracted driving, trucks, uninsured/underinsured drivers or taxi cabs, you must file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Cabs and car services must have a set minimum of liability insurance coverage. However, it is probable that your accident exceeds these minimums, and the insurance company may try to shortchange you. Providers also may try to do everything within their power to place liability on you instead of the responsible driver. Our attorneys are adept at anticipating this kind of behavior and do not back down from even the largest insurance companies.
