Taxicab Passenger Injuries

Las Vegas Taxicab Accident Lawyer

Helping Protect the Rights of the Victims of Taxicab Accidents

Taxicabs account for a significant portion of the motor vehicle traffic in and around Las Vegas. In fact, there are approximately 3,000 taxicabs serving the Las Vegas area and, by some estimates, more than 27 million taxicab trips are made annually in Las Vegas. Given the number of taxicabs serving Las Vegas residents and visitors, traffic accidents are bound to happen. Unfortunately, taxicab accidents often result in passenger injuries and even death.

As a dedicated Las Vegas injury attorney, Robert M. Apple is dedicated to helping injured taxicab passengers obtain the financial compensation that they deserve. Contact our office at (702) 646-0085 to schedule a free consultation with our Las Vegas taxicab injury lawyer.

Obligations of Nevada Taxicab Drivers

Like all motorists, taxicab drivers are expected to obey the rules of the road. Additionally, Las Vegas taxicabs are required to implement a driver safety program that includes the installation of mechanical, electronic, or other devices to “protect the driver and passenger from crime” or “aid law enforcement officials in the apprehension of persons who victimize cabdrivers.” These devices can also be used to provide evidence regarding the circumstances of a taxicab accident, as well.

If you were injured in a taxicab accident – either as a passenger in the taxicab or as another motorist on the road – you may be able to recover money damages for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • Property damages
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of normal life

What to Do If You Are In a Las Vegas Taxicab Accident

If you are in a taxi cab accident in Las Vegas or the surrounding area, there are several things you should do, including:

  • Document as much information as possible about the accident, including driver name and telephone phone number, taxi cab registration number, the location of the accident, the name and contact information of other motorists involved in the accident, and the names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident.
  • Take photos at the scene of the accident, if possible.
  • Get medical attention. Even though you may appear uninjured, the symptoms for injuries like whiplash or a back injury can take days or weeks to develop.
  • Contact a knowledgeable Las Vegas accident attorney like Robert M. Apple.
