Taxi Accident Lawyer Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
South Florida is one of the most prominent tourist spots in the world. People love to visit Florida to enjoy its oceans, theme parks, restaurants, culture, and other notable attractions. Many of these tourists choose to rent taxi cabs to travel around their destination cities. They put their safety in the hands of the taxi drivers.
Unfortunately, taxi accidents can happen. The most common reasons for taxi accidents include:
- Bad weather
- Aggressive driving
Most taxi drivers work as independent contractors. They are required to purchase their own car insurance for their taxi cabs. If you have gotten injured in a taxi accident, then the taxi driver will likely be liable for the damages you’ve incurred. But if they work as employees for a company, their employer would be responsible for the injury damages.

When Do You Need to Hire a Taxi Accident Lawyer?
Did you know that taxi drivers are exempt from the no-fault auto insurance law? This law requires drivers to file an insurance claim after suffering an accident, no matter who is at fault.
Since taxi drivers are exempt, they won’t necessarily contact their insurance company right away or at all. It is even worse if they work for an employer because they won’t want to file a claim either. They will be too afraid their insurance premiums will rise. So, you need to take the initiative and pursue legal action against their insurance company.
The taxi drivers are not always to blame for taxi accidents. Sometimes it could be the fault of another driver instead. But you still have the right to sue for the injury damages you incurred as a passenger in the taxi. However, don’t attempt to file a lawsuit without obtaining the services of a professional taxi accident lawyer.
A tax accident lawyer is experienced at managing taxi accident cases for their clients. They will use the appropriate legal strategies and techniques to ensure the guilty party pays the total amount of compensation owed to you under the law.
In most cases, the insurance company of the taxi driver or another driver will be the entity that pays for damages. You just need to have the right legal representation that knows how to deal with these insurance companies. Otherwise, they will try to avoid paying any compensation at all.

How does the process of a taxi accident lawsuit work?
