If you were injured in a taxicab accident, you are likely in pain, worried about medical expenses, and wondering how you will get your life back. But you might be entitled to compensation to help you get back on your feet. A Tyler taxicab accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins wants to help you get it.
A settlement or award could cover your medical expenses, reimburse you for missed work and lost pay, and compensate you for the pain and suffering you have unfairly endured. Compensation can make a significant difference in your quality of life and recovery after an accident. That is why we recommend calling in the Strong Arm today. Let us start working on your case right away.
Compensation You Can Recover After a Taxicab Accident
Your damage award will cover two types of losses: economic and non-economic. Economic losses are those which are financial, while non-economic losses reimburse victims for their intangible losses.
Economic damages may include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Travel and lodging expenses for medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Property damages
Non-economic damage awards compensate victims for losses, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of relationships
- Extent of injury and recovery
- Loss in quality of life

Our Team Helps All Types of Taxi Accident Victims in Tyler
Regardless of whether you were a taxicab passenger, a driver or a passenger in another vehicle, a pedestrian, or a cyclist, you may be eligible for compensation. While your case will look different depending on the circumstances, the bottom line is the same: you deserve justice and fair compensation and the Strong Arm can help you get it.
All drivers must exercise reasonable care while driving. Failure to do so could make a driver liable for damages that result from their negligence.
You Could Recover Damages Even If You Contributed to the Accident
In Texas, you can recover damages in a personal injury action in any case for which you share fault, as long as you are not more than 50% responsible (Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 33.001).
Therefore, if you partially caused the accident, you are not barred from recovering damages. You must only prove that the other driver is at least half at fault for the accident and that the accident caused your injuries.

What to Expect in Your Taxicab Accident Case
All cases start and proceed in the same way, regardless of whether they settle or go to trial. There is no way to know how any case will progress from the start. However, the vast majority of personal injury lawsuits settle before ever making it to trial. Personal injury cases generally begin and progress as follows:
- An attorney from our firm investigates the potential case.
- The attorney will file the claim with the court and send it to the opposing party.
- “Discovery” between the plaintiff and defendant begins, which includes taking depositions, and exchanging information, documents, and questions between parties.
- At this point, the judge may order a settlement conference requiring parties to meet to encourage an agreement or settlement outside of court.
- If both parties do not reach a settlement outside of court, the parties can go to trial.
How Long Your Case May Last
How long a case takes to complete varies substantially. Cases that settle may finish before cases that proceed to trial because there are fewer steps involved. However, this is not a rule. In fact, complicated cases can take longer to settle than very simple cases may take to finish at trial.
In addition to the overall complexity of a case, other factors can significantly influence the pacing of a case. These include:
- The severity of the injury and amount of compensation at stake
- The amount and quality of evidence proving defendant’s fault and the extent of the plaintiff’s injury
- How willing the defendant is to admit their fault and settle fairly
- The caseload of the court
When you are represented by the Strong Arm, you can be sure that we will take the necessary time and fight to get you all that you deserve.
How Long You Have to File
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Texas is two years, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. This does not mean that your case has to be finished within two years. It means that you must file your case within two years of your accident.
If your case is not filed before the statute of limitations expires, you will permanently lose the opportunity to file it. This is why, if you plan on filing your case, we recommend doing so right away. Do not wait. Unexpected hiccups or delays may slow the filing process and it is best not to risk losing your right to justice.
