Despite the surge in popularity of rideshare services over the last decade, taxis, limos, and shuttles remain popular modes of transportation. In fact, these services have even incorporated many of the favored user interfaces, including apps, to make it easier for passengers to book services.
However, accidents involving taxis, shuttles, and limos can result in severe injuries for victims. It is not uncommon for the personal injury attorneys at Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers to help Cleveland victims who have sustained the following injuries in these cases:
Ultimately, determining liability is critical in the aftermath of a crash involving a Cleveland taxi, shuttle, or limo. Only after liability is determined will a victim be able to recover the compensation they deserve. It is not uncommon for drivers and their respective companies to immediately deny any wrongdoing after a collision, and they may even try to blame the victim for the incident.
Liability in these cases can become muddied, particularly depending on whether or not the drivers who cause an accident are employees or independent contractors. If drivers who cause an accident are employees of a company, the responsibility for covering injury costs will typically fall to the company itself. However, if a company argues that the driver was an independent contractor, liability could fall onto the driver. This could play a significant role in an injury case when it comes to the amount of insurance coverage available as well as the assets the liable party has to cover the total costs.
