The more fares a taxi driver completes in a day, the more money he or she makes. Unfortunately, this means it is not uncommon for taxi drivers to drive recklessly by speeding, running through yellow and red lights, and abruptly changing lanes without signaling. This irresponsible driving can easily result in an auto accident that causes damage to your health or belongings. If you have been injured in a taxi accident, we may be able to help you pursue the compensation to which you are entitled for your pain, medical expenses, and damaged property.

What Sets Taxi Accidents Apart
Taxis are considered common carriers by California state law because they offer transportation services to the public for a fee. Common carriers are required to provide the utmost duty of care to their passengers.
Most taxi accidents fall into one of the following three scenarios:
- The taxi you are riding in strikes another vehicle or object
- Another car crashes into the taxi of which you are a passenger
- A taxi hits you while you are on foot, on a bicycle, or in your personal vehicle
In each of these situations, a different party could be responsible for providing compensation. At Christopher C. Vader PC, we may be able to help you gather evidence, determine who should be held liable for your pain and suffering, and deal with the insurance companies involved. If a dispute arises over who is responsible or how much compensation should be allotted, we may be able to help build your case and bring a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
