Taxis are a necessary part of urban living. Taxi services have been a part of American life for over 100 years. Taxi cab services as we know them have been challenged in recent years with the influx of rideshare services. However, taxi cab services still exist and they are still a part of our lives. If you are injured in a taxi accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. A taxi accident attorney can help you figure out if you have a case, and who is responsible for your injuries.

Driver’s Negligence in Colorado
One way to get compensation for your injuries is to make a claim under Negligence. Negligence is a legal theory that allows persons injured by the careless or reckless actions of another person to get compensation for their injuries from them.
To prove a claim of negligence, an injured person must prove all four elements of negligence. They must prove that:
- The defendant owed them a duty of care.
- The defendant breached their duty of care.
- The breach of duty was the proximate or legal cause of the victim’s injury.
- The victim suffered actual losses.
Colorado has reckless driving and careless driving laws, which may allow for the injured victim to make claims based on the theory of negligence per se.
With negligence per se, the injured victim does not have to prove the first two elements of negligence. The violation of a law enacted to protect a class of persons, including the injured victim, proves that there was a duty owed and the duty was breached.
Taxi cab drivers are often employees of a taxi service company. Vicarious liability is another legal theory through which a taxi accident victim could get compensation for their injuries. Taxi cab companies can be held responsible for the actions of their drivers, if their drivers cause injury or death to others in the course of their normal duties to the taxi company.
