San Bernardino Taxi Cab Accident Attorney
Taxi Cab Accident Claims in San Bernardino
Taxi cab drivers make their living or supplement their income by driving fares from one point to another and earning tips. The more fares they carry and deliver in time, the higher their income. Long hours spent behind the wheel of a taxi rushing to deliver someone to work on time, get a fare to the airport to catch a flight, or to beat the clock and get a fare to a crucial appointment or business meeting on time can be exhausting, especially if the driver has already worked a full day at his or her other job. Between fatigue and being under pressure to hurry, a cab driver can reduce trip time by breaking the law in speeding or ignoring traffic signals but in doing so can also cause accidents. If you have been injured in a taxi cab accident it is important to have the assistance of a San Bernardino personal injury attorney when filing your claim for damages.
