Assertive Representation For Passengers And Pedestrians Injured In Taxi Accidents
Taxicab drivers operate under tremendous stress. They are quick to step on the gas, daring in maneuvering around traffic, make frequent stops and starts, drive in all kinds of weather, and deal with traffic jams, long shifts and aching backs. Drivers are rewarded for hustle and risk-taking. For this reason, they experience more than their share of accidents.
Some common accidents involving taxicabs include:
- The cab turns into traffic and another car collides with it.
- The cab drops you off on a busy street and you are struck walking away.
- The taxi runs over your foot.
- The cab is hit from behind causing a serious neck injury.
- A door handle breaks off, the jagged metal cutting your hand.
- You bump your head stepping out and suffer a concussion.
Reliable Representation In Taxicab Injury Cases
At Mayer & Associates, P.C., our Kansas City taxi accident attorney represents passengers who are injured in cabs, pedestrians who are struck by cabs and taxi drivers who are injured in the course of duty.
Taxicab injury cases have unique challenges, especially identifying the negligent party. Cab companies often have complicated ownership structures involving out-of-state parties. You need an attorney who is experienced in this kind of detective work and who can bring negligent parties to the table.

Some taxi companies have teams of highly paid attorneys who do nothing but fend off injury claims. Mayer & Associates, P.C., is comfortable going up against these heavy hitters, not afraid to go after the powerful and hold them accountable for negligent acts.
