Chicago Car Accident Lawyer

Despite the more recent popularity of ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft, many Chicago visitors and residents alike still rely upon taxicabs to transport them from place to place around the city and suburbs. Taxicabs, however, are not immune from being involved in motor vehicle accidents, and taxicab drivers sometimes operate their vehicles in a reckless or careless manner. In some instances, however, other motor vehicle operators are responsible for the collision.

One recent taxicab accident in Chicago occurred in October of this year, near the 100 block of North Wacker Drive. In that incident, a taxicab that was traveling southbound on North Wacker turned left onto eastbound Washington Street, and in the process, struck a Ford Mustang that was traveling north on North Wacker. The passenger in the taxicab was later pronounced dead.

Making a Claim against the Cab Driver or Cab Company

Cab drivers have a duty to operate their motor vehicles in a safe and prudent manner at all times – most especially when they are transporting passengers from place to place. When a taxi driver negligently causes a motor vehicle collision that results in one or more passenger injuries, then the passenger may be able to file a claim or a lawsuit directly against the negligent cab driver.

Moreover, if an employment relationship exists between the cab driver and the cab company, the cab company might be deemed vicariously liable for the negligence of its employee driver. Consequently, in a cab accident case that was caused by a negligent cab driver, your lawyer may be able to bring a claim or file a lawsuit against both the cab driver and the employer cab company. 

Making a Claim against another Driver

Sometimes, cab drivers are not the cause of the motor vehicle accident, but instead, another driver might have caused the accident. The other driver might have been unlawfully speeding, weaving in and out of highway traffic, or violating some other rule of the road. In that instance, an injured taxi passenger may be able to file suit against the negligent motor vehicle driver. 

As part of your negligence claim, you may be able to pursue monetary compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings (if any), as well as for all of your pain, suffering, and inconvenience stemming from your accident.
