One of the most common questions we receive from taxi crash victims is, “Who will pay for my damages?” The legal term for this is “liability.” Missouri is an at-fault state, meaning you must determine fault and then seek damage recovery through the at-fault party’s insurer. The person liable, or legally responsible, for your taxi accident damages, is the same party that caused the accident. Taxicab claims are different from standard auto accident suits, however, because they involve companies and their employees. Potential parties that might owe you for your injuries include:
Most taxi accidents in St. Louis will come down to company liability. It is a taxi company’s legal obligation to ensure the safety of its passengers. This includes conducting driver background checks and taking care of vehicles to prevent accidents. Failure to fulfill required duties of care as a taxi company, resulting in a preventable accident, could give victims the right to file claims against the company itself.
If you’re not sure who you should hold liable for your taxi collision, speak to one of our taxi accident lawyers today. We will analyze your case and tell you who is at fault for your injuries.
As the plaintiff in a taxi personal injury claim, you will have to prove that the defendant was negligent in some way that caused your accident. You will need proof that the cab driver or company owed you a duty of care, breached this duty, caused the accident and caused your injuries. You may also need to defend yourself against a claim that you shared fault for the incident.
To prove the other party’s fault and the value of your damages, you will need to gather the proper evidence.
