Were you or a loved one injured in an accident as a passenger in a taxicab or as a pedestrian, motorcyclist, or bicyclist who was struck by a taxicab? If a privately owned vehicle was responsible for your accident, you typically know exactly who to pursue for compensation—the driver or his insurance company. When you are involved in a collision with a taxicab, however, determining the right party to pursue can seem far more complicated.
The financial expenses and losses of a taxicab accident should not fall onto your shoulders. An El Paso taxicab accident lawyer may be able to help you determine whether to pursue the taxicab driver, company, or insurance provider for financial recovery. When you are ready to get the financial compensation you deserve, contact the personal injury team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins by calling 800-777-7777.
Taxicab Insurance May Cover the Cost of Your Collision
Like all vehicles registered to drive in the state of Texas, taxicabs are required to meet state-mandated insurance minimums. Riding in a taxicab in El Paso should allow you to move safely from your point of origin to your destination. When an accident interrupts your trip, a lawyer may be able to help you collect compensation for the cost of the accident. To support your case, your lawyer may:
- Identify the taxicab driver and company
- Scrutinize the taxicab’s insurance policy
- Read and review your crash report
- Identify and interview witnesses
- Calculate the total cost of the accident
- Read and calculate your medical bills
- Review and calculate your salary history
When your lawyer carefully reads and reviews the taxicab company’s insurance policy, they can find the minimum and maximum amounts of coverage available. Your lawyer may also be able to ensure the taxicab company and their insurance provider cover the total cost of the collision. Doing so will ensure you are not forced to pay expenses out of your own pocket for an accident that was not your fault.

A Lawyer Can Negotiate a Financial Settlement On Your Behalf
Representing yourself in a personal injury claim can be complicated and time-consuming. Having a lawyer on your side can offer you a wide range of benefits that include having an advocate and supporter when you need it most. As your advocate, our team can help you avoid a lengthy court process by negotiating a favorable financial settlement with the at-fault party.
According to the American Bar Association (ABA), when you accept a settlement for your taxicab accident, you cannot ask for additional financial damages at a later date, which may make working with your lawyer to prove the full value of your case important. A case that overlooks any part of your injury-related expenses could mean you inadvertently accept a settlement offer that is too small to fully cover the costs of the collision.
Our goal is to settle your case in a timely fashion and to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to. We can negotiate on your behalf and will advise you on the merits of any settlement offer you receive. We work hard to make sure your claim has the best possible outcome for you, but the decision of whether or not to accept any settlement offer is always yours to make.
