When individuals are in unfamiliar cities, they may call cabs to take them from place to place. We all expect cab drivers to get us around safely. Unfortunately, some cabs rides turn dangerous the moment you close the door. Reckless cabbies may be prone to accidents, and innocent passengers are the ones who pay the price.
A taxicab accident may cause you serious injury. If you or someone you love was injured in a taxicab accident, contact the Milwaukee car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn more about holding the taxi company accountable for your injuries.
Signs of a Reckless Cab Driver
Getting in a taxicab requires a great deal of trust, which we are often willing to give our cab drivers. That trust may quickly fade if the cab driver’s driving habits make us feel unsafe. Some habits that may put the driver at a greater chance for an accident include:
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Changing lanes without checking mirrors or blind spots
- Talking or texting on a cell phone
If you feel unsafe at any time, you should tell the driver that you want to stop. After you pay your fare, you should contact the taxi company to inform them of the driver’s unsafe habits.
Unfortunately, you may get in an accident before you have a chance to ask the cabbie to stop. If this happens, the taxi company may be liable for any injuries you suffer.
