Taxi Accidents

While on vacation, business trips, or simply to get around town, people often depend on taxis to get them to different destinations safely. Taxis can be a convenient mode of transportation, especially when visiting a new place with which you may be unfamiliar. Unfortunately, taxis are just as likely to be involved in serious accidents as any other vehicle, and you may suffer injury if a collision occurs.

Taxi drivers often spend long hours in the car and may have little time to rest and take breaks during their shifts. If they are driving on little rest, are drowsy, or are simply reckless behind the wheel, your chances of being involved in an accident greatly increase. If you have been injured due to the negligent actions of a taxi driver, contact the Lake Geneva personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 1-800-242-2874.
