Nearly every other car you see these days is either operating as a taxicab or one of the many ride sharing companies, like Uber or Lyft. More cars on the road generally mean more accidents. You could be driving your car and be struck by a taxicab or other professional driver, or you could be a passenger in the taxi itself. Cases dealing with professional drivers come with their own unique set of complications, this is where hiring an attorney knowledgeable in this field will level the playing field.
Thankfully, in most accidents people are not seriously injured; however, even non life threatening injuries can result in thousands of dollars of medical bills. Medical bills that would not have been incurred were it not for the driver that caused the accident.

This is where attorneys experienced in taxicab and ride sharing accident litigation will help to get you back on your feet.
