Houston Taxi Accident Lawyers Who Put Your Best Interests First
Our car accident attorneys go above and beyond for injury victims and their families
Car accidents involving taxis in Texas happen more than many people might realize. When they do, the injuries can often be serious. Whether you’re in another car or you’re a passenger in a taxi, you can suddenly sustain an injury to your head, neck or another part of your body that leaves you unable to work, walk or do many of the things you might take for granted.
Fortunately, you’re not alone. Our experienced car accident lawyers at Smith & Hassler can help you every step of the way. Our attorneys have years of experience dealing with many different types of car accidents. As a result, we know the law and understand how the legal system works in Houston and throughout Texas.
What are common causes of taxi accidents?
Accidents caused by taxi drivers happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes we often deal with at our law firm include taxi drivers:
- Texting while driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Strict rules and regulations apply to taxi drivers. The same is true for rideshare drivers who work for Lyft or Uber or another ridesharing company. That’s why it’s important that you talk to a lawyer who knows the law and knows what to do. That’s why we want to meet with you.
"On the first night of a vacation in Texas, the taxi and which myself and a friend (both from the United Kingdom) were travelling were struck by a drunk driver, and both of us had to spend some time in hospital with various injuries, some fairly serious. Before leaving the country, we went to Smith & Hassler, and our individual cases were handled by Daragh Carter. Our meeting with him convinced us of his abilities, and he was with us every step of the way over e-mail, letting us know about every development in the process of claiming compensation from the drunk driver's insurance company. When we were eventually offered sums of money, Daragh successfully claimed more for us. We couldn't be happier with the services we received, and recommend Smith & Hassler thoroughly." — Elidir
What makes taxi accidents in Texas so complicated?
You might think you don’t even need a lawyer if a taxi driver clearly caused your collision, pedestrian accident, or bicycle accident. The same is true if you were a passenger in a taxi involved in crash. Unfortunately, accidents caused by taxi drivers often turn out to be complex legal cases for many different reasons, including:
- The taxi driver denies doing anything wrong.
- The taxi driver blames you for causing the collision.
- The taxi company a driver works for refuses to provide evidence related to your crash.
- The taxi driver’s insurance company denies your accident claim.
Our legal team investigates your crash to get the facts. We gather evidence, including records owned by the taxi company. We carefully review accident reports and medical records and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts. Our lawyers build the strongest case possible.
Some law firms avoid complex legal cases, but we thrive on them. That’s because we believe taxi drivers and the companies that they work for should be held accountable for their actions. That’s why we want to meet with you. You didn’t do anything wrong and you deserve to be compensated for your crash.
You have rights. Our law firm can fight for them. Contact us today.
The stakes are high in many Texas taxi accidents. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the length of your recovery, your taxi accident-related expenses could be worth thousands or even millions of dollars.
It’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible following your crash. Over time, evidence can be lost or destroyed and the memories of witnesses can fade. If you hire our firm, you owe us nothing unless we recover compensation for you. There are no upfront fees or other charges. We don’t get paid until we win for you.
