Common Causes of Taxi Cab Accidents
One reason taxi cab accidents are common in Las Vegas is the heavy congestion on the city’s main thoroughfares. Las Vegas’ streets are filled with:
- Other taxis
- Dozens of motor vehicles
- Bicycle riders
Not only are cab drivers challenged by the actions of other drivers, they face the unpredictable actions of the many pedestrians and bicycle riders on the busy streets of Las Vegas.
Las Vegas, as a tourist town, hosts many visitors who need taxi transportation. The huge number of tourists in Las Vegas, many of whom take taxis, contribute to the abundance of taxis on the city’s streets, pushing up the odds of a taxi cab accident.
Taxi companies will naturally try to defend the actions of their drivers to keep their insurance rates down and avoid being held liable for the accident. In their attempts to avoid paying you for the accident or shelling out more to their insurance companies, their version of the accident situation and the cause of your injuries may not be the same as yours.
