What rights do I have as a passenger injured in a taxi cab accident?
Passengers who are injured in the back seat of a taxi cab have rights to make a financial recovery for their damages and losses. Typically, passengers have the right to collect money for their injuries, hospital bills, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, lost income, future lost wages, future medical care, and other expenses associated with their crash-related injuries.
It is important that you get an accident attorney involved because you will be dealing with a large cab company who will want to limit the amount of money they pay you. Additionally, cab companies may instruct their drivers to destroy evidence or anything that would point the finger at them following a cab accident in Florida. For this reason, having an attorney on your side who can collect evidence and stay on top of the case will be beneficial to your case’s outcome.
