Taxi Cab Accidents
Atlanta Taxi Cab Accident Lawyer
Many individuals choose taxis as a mode of transportation when going to the airport or after a party when they don't want to risk the danger of drinking and driving. Many of the elderly are no longer comfortable driving and choose taxis even to get to and from the grocery store. Taxi drivers are so intent upon their business and often drive extremely fast as they are paid by the mile. The more "fares" they get, the more money they will take home. This can create a danger for the passenger, when the driver is driving without regard for other drivers and takes risks in their hurry. When a taxicab accident is the result, the taxi cab passenger or the driver and passengers in the other cars involved may have an insurance problem to solve. These injury accidents require the assistance of an Atlanta car accident lawyer to sort out the complex insurance claim and settlement.
Taxi Cab Accident Attorney in Atlanta
As taxi cabs are commercial vehicles, the situation with the insurance claim will not be as it is when dealing with a private driver. The taxi company will have several types of insurances, and like all other commercial enterprises, claims can raise their insurance premiums. This can result in a problem in which there could be attempts by the attorneys representing the taxi company to reduce the claim amount. This is often emotional and upsetting, as when one is dealing with an injury, the last thing you want to do is fight about why you should be paid in the case. This situation can be handled by a personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Neil Flit.
The legal team at the firm is aware of how commercial driver accident claims move through the system and how to fight for the maximum compensation in the case. There is almost always a settlement that comes at the end of negotiations, and you can be assured that the attorney that represents you will be fighting for a settlement that is commensurate with the damages you have suffered. This varies widely, depending upon the degree of injury and other damages.
