Denver Taxi Accident Attorney
Taxi cabs are involved in car accidents like any other motor vehicle. Unlike most car accidents, they can be complicated due to the commercial nature of taxi companies. Our Denver taxi accident attorneys help clients get the medical care they need and the compensation they deserve.
Taxi companies provide private transportation in and around Denver, Colorado along with rideshare companies and other private car services. Taxi cab accidents often result in complicated claims, most of all because taxi companies are difficult to work with when it comes to insurance claims. You need a Denver taxi accident attorney on your side who will advocate for your needs and fight to get you maximum compensation for your injuries and losses. We hold negligent drivers accountable for the harm they cause our clients. Contact our Denver car accident attorneys today for a free case review.

Why you need a Denver taxi accident attorney
Taxi car accident claims are often far more complicated than you would expect. There may be multiple claimants involved with multiple insurance companies involved pointing the finger at each other. Taxi companies may refuse to cooperate with investigations or insurance claims. Drivers depend on their commercial driving license and may be inclined to fight a claim or even lie about the facts of the collision. Taxi companies often make it extremely difficult to file and pursue insurance claims. Although taxis in Denver are regulated by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, that does not make taxi companies any more responsible when it comes to car accidents.
You didn’t ask for these problems but these hurdles must be faced and overcome to obtain fair compensation for your case. The insurance companies hope you will get frustrated and give up on your case. Our experienced Denver taxi accident attorney can investigate the accident to determine liability, help you advocate for your medical needs, negotiate your claim and file a personal injury lawsuit if necessary.
Who is liable for my taxi accident injuries and damages?
Taxi accidents can result in injuries and damages to taxi passengers, other motorists and passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and other people on the road. Your role in the auto accident will determine in part who you can pursue for compensation and what you may have to prove to hold other parties liable for your injuries.
Taxi passenger injuries
If you are hurt as a passenger or a taxi, you do not have to worry about proving liability. The drivers of the vehicles involved may fight over liability and blaming each other as a negligent driver. You can pursue claims against each negligent driver for your damages. It will be up to the drivers involved, and their insurance carriers, to sort out liability.
Hit by a taxi
Generally, if you were injured by a taxi striking a car you were in or hitting you as a pedestrian or cyclist, you must prove the taxi driver caused the accident. To prove liability, you must show who was at fault for the accident and the damages you suffered. Damages means the economic and non-economic effects of the injuries caused by the motor vehicle collision. They can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, lost earning potential, pain and suffering, emotional distress and mental anguish.
People injured as passengers in other vehicles struck by a taxi cab, like taxi passengers, are almost always blameless for their injuries. Depending upon the relationship between you and the driver of your vehicle, you may file claims against all drivers involved and leave it to them to sort out liability. In some cases you cannot file a liability claim against a driver of a car you occupied. If this is a concern in your case, your Denver personal injury lawyer can discuss that with you.
