Taxi Cab Accident Detailed

Hear this client testimonial from Las Vegas pastry chef Michael Kim about how Benson & Bingham helped him through his taxi accident.

Taxi Cab accidents occur very frequently in the Las Vegas Valley. Tourists who visit are obviously the victims in these horrible accidents. As a fault free passenger, most victims are without seat belt and sitting in the rear of the vehicle. Often times we represent multiple passengers who are sitting in the back and front of the cab when they are rear-ended or “t-boned” in an intersection. These victims have rights. Most of the time, the seat belts are not available, stuck in the seat, or simply not transparent to the passengers. Nevada Law does not mandate seat belt use in a civil case. Nevada does have a seat belt law, but the issue is irrelevant in an accident case. Taxi drivers usually are in a hurry. The more they drive the more they make. Thus, careless drivers abound. It is important to realize that not only are passengers injured in these vehicles, as our firm represents many clients in accidents that occur in valets, around hotels, bus stops, and near the strip.

Besides the usual neck and back injuries, we deal with run over feet, legs, and shin injuries. The most common out of cab accident is the run over foot accident. You just paid the driver and he hurries to the next pick up and in the process runs over your foot—sometimes crushing the foot, the bones, tendons and ligaments. When nerve damage occurs, the foot can be permanently damaged. Tires attack shoes and crush feet. Benson & Bingham work with many specialists to ensure quality medial care to their clients.

You should understand that cabs and taxis are regulated by the Nevada Taxi Cab Authority. The Taxi Authority has responsibility of all cabs:

During discovery, Benson & Bingham often obtain on-board video from taxi cab cameras to prove the tenants of the case. Here is another example of such video:
