Taxicabs are a popular form of transportation for a variety of reasons. For example, an individual may be a visitor in a new city and therefore does not have his or her own means of transportation. Or, a person might make the responsible decision not to drive after a night out on the town, instead putting their own safety in the hands of a cab driver. While taxicab drivers do operate vehicles for a living, they are under pressure to deliver fares to their destination quickly and may feel tempted to drive recklessly. Acting in this manner poses a threat to passengers as well as other on or near the roadway.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury in a taxicab accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

If you are riding in a taxicab, you should be aware of the driver’s actions. You do not have to continue riding with someone who is acting recklessly. Request that the driver stop and allow you to exit if your driver does any of the following:
- Swerves in and out of traffic or violates speed limits
- Exhibits signs of road rage
- Speeds through intersections to avoid stopping at red lights
- Talks or texts on his or her cell phone while driving
- Follows other vehicles too closely
