Taxicab Accidents Are Both Common And Serious
As common carriers, taxicab drivers are held to high standards of care under California law. They must drive responsibly and observe all traffic rules to protect the safety of their passengers.
When taxicab accidents happen, the driver, the cab company and even the cab’s manufacturer may be responsible. Perhaps the driver contributed to the accident by:
- Failing to stop or yield
- Failing to ensure that the cab is in good working order
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Whether you were a passenger in the taxi – or a pedestrian or cyclist who was struck by a cab – you may be grappling with serious injuries, significant medical bills, and countless uncertainties. At The Weinberger Law Firm in Sacramento, our taxicab accident lawyers can help you pursue the compensation you need to put this behind you.

With the rise of smartphones, new rideshare services such as Uber, Sidecar, Lyft, and Wingz have begun to supplant traditional taxicabs.
