Sorting out fault after a taxicab wreck can be complicated. Simplify the process by working with a Phoenix taxi accident lawyer.
While the average car crash can be difficult enough to get compensated for, taxi wrecks add an additional layer of complexity thanks to the number of different entities involved with running these vehicles. Each of these companies or individuals will need to be considered for fault, and none of them are going to be interested in accepting financial liability.
You can remove the uncertainty from this equation by working with Milton Wagner, a skilled and knowledgeable Phoenix taxi accident lawyer. Regardless of how much the other side and their insurance company is resisting, he can go to work and get you the compensation you deserve.
Potential Responsible Parties in Cab Crashes
Your personal injury claim starts with determining who was at fault for the taxicab collision. This is simpler in accidents that only involve privately owned cars and motorcycles because there are fewer entities involved—and therefore fewer variables.
Our Phoenix taxi accident lawyer will identify each cause that led to the wreck and then trace the fault back to the responsible party. This can be a difficult process that often involves factors such as distracted driving, negligent hiring, intoxication, and poor maintenance, which is why it’s important to begin work on your claim immediately. Arizona also only allows two years in which to file a personal injury claim; just one more reason to get started right away.
Listed below are a few of the parties that will need to be considered for negligence:
Third-party maintenance company
Taxi or parts manufacturer
Government agency if dangerous roads were involved
Negotiating Compensation for a Taxicab Wreck
Even if the at-fault party or their insurance company make you a settlement offer immediately after the accident, you shouldn’t accept it until a Phoenix taxi accident lawyer has reviewed it and advised you accordingly. The primary concern of the other side will be limiting their expense, and that means getting you to settle for as little as possible.
Attorney Wagner can collect all the available evidence, records, and witness testimony that can be used to prove your case and build a negotiating position of strength. While this will obviously involve evidence taken from the scene of the cab crash, it will also include an investigation into the history of both the cabbie and the taxi company’s hiring practices. If either has a history of violations, it can add to the strength of your case.
Most cases can be settled out of court in this way. Even if your case does need to go to trial, you’ll have high-caliber legal representation on your side, giving you the strongest possible chance for a favorable judgment.
