When people travel to unfamiliar cities without a vehicle, many of them choose to take taxi cabs as a primary form of transportation. Additionally, in bigger cities, local residents may choose to take a cab for a variety of reasons. When you get into a cab, you are putting your safety in the hands of a stranger, and even though most of these drivers act responsibly while driving, there are some taxi cab drivers who break traffic laws and put their passengers in harm’s way.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a taxi-related accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Contact your Iowa injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today at (515) 705-0233 today to schedule a free consultation.
Reckless Cab Driver Actions
Any car accident, large or small, has the potential to result in serious, long-term injuries. As such, it is important for cab drivers to do everything they can to drive safely. You should ask a cab driver to pull over so that you can get out if he or she does any of the following while driving:
- Talks or texts on his or her cell phone
- Veers in and out of traffic without signaling or checking blind spots
- Drives well over the speed limit
- Accelerates and decelerates too quickly
You should report any reckless cab driver to his or her cab company so that he or she is not able to put any other passengers at risk of injury.
