In and around the Boston metro area, taxi cab drivers are infamously considered some of the worst drivers on the road. Many cab drivers disregard the ban on texting and cell phone use, drive recklessly and dangerously, ignore traffic signals, and put other motorists, taxi passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists in danger of serious injuries or fatalities because of their negligent driving. There are around 5,500 tax cab drivers in Boston alone, logging around 100,000 miles on the road each year. This high volume and constant presence increases the risks created by their often careless and dangerous driving habits.

Cabs in Boston are regulated by the "Hackney Carriage Unit" of the Boston Police Department. Their competency and commitment to safe driving should be held in the highest regard and closely monitored. Unfortunately, most cab drivers are more concerned with reaching their destinations in as short of a time span as possible, to maximize their profits. As a result, they often employ negligent driving tactics such speeding, switching lanes erratically, failing to yield the right of way, and running red lights. Our attorneys will hold any taxi cab driving liable for his negligent driving that results in injuries or wrongful death.We Have Decades Of Success Dealing With Taxi Companies And Their Insurance
As you have likely observed, there are many different taxi cab companies in and around Boston. When filing a claim, dealing with these various managing companies and their insurance can be complex. Often, the negligent cab driver, the owner of the offending vehicle, and their insurance companies will attempt to avoid liability by denying any wrongdoing. Our Boston car accident lawyers launch a thorough investigation, immediately, to hold at-fault drivers and their parent companies liable for your damages.We Pursue Claims Against All Negligent Parties
Taxi cab car accidents are distinctive, because there are various potentially liable parties involved. We understand that each case is unique and will explore bringing a claim against any at-fault party. Most often, the driver was negligent, but the parent company is liable as well on a "respondeat superior" basis. Taxi cabs are also often in poor mechanical condition. If they are not properly maintained and a mechanical flaw is the cause of an accident, there are additional grounds for suit. In short, we do not stop until every rock is overturned to maximize your compensation.
