Filing a Personal Injury Taxicab Accident Claim or Lawsuit
If you were injured in a taxicab accident, you may be interested in filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit. In order to hold another party responsible for your injuries, you must provide evidence showing that their negligence caused your accident. Even if you partially contributed to or caused the accident, you may still be eligible to receive compensation, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §33.001.
In Texas, a victim can still collect compensation in an accident if they are 50% or less at fault. This is called “comparative negligence.” Your compensatory award will be adjusted to reflect your role in the accident. So, if you were 20% at fault for the accident, and your damages totaled $20,000, you would be eligible to receive $16,000.

Filing a Wrongful Death Taxicab Accident Claim or Lawsuit
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we do not only serve those who have been hurt in accidents. We also fight for justice on behalf of those who have lost loved ones. If you have lost a loved one, you may be entitled to justice and compensation through a wrongful death claim or lawsuit.
A wrongful death action, as discussed in Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §71.002, can be filed on behalf of a person who suffered fatal injuries due to another’s “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default.” This means that if another party’s negligence, recklessness, incompetence, or failure to act reasonably caused your loved one’s passing, they could be liable for your damages.
You may have as little as two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a lawsuit, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003. For that reason, you should consider taking legal action as soon as you can.
If someone is liable for the wrongful death of your loved one, Loncar Lyon Jenkins can fight for justice on your behalf.

Our Law Firm Can Help You Recover Compensation for Your Losses
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, securing compensation for you and your family is our top priority. To resolve your personal injury case, our team will calculate the value of your damages, negotiate a settlement, and litigate on your behalf, if necessary.
We can help you recover the following:
Economic damages are those which compensate a victim for their financial losses stemming from an accident. These damages not only include just medical expenses but also include lost wages, transportation costs, and reduced future earning capacity. Texas does not have a cap on economic damages in personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits.
Non-economic damages compensate victims for their non-financial losses, like pain and suffering. When calculating the value of your non-economic damages, your lawyer will consider the extent of your injuries, the length of your recovery period, and whether you lost a loved one.
Examples of non-economic damages include:
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
You may be able to collect compensation for other losses not included here. To discuss specific damages for your personal injury claim, call (877) 239-4878.
