Our Taxi Cab Accident Lawyers have represented hundreds of passengers who were seriously injured while riding as passengers in cabs, providing us with the experience and resources needed to hold cab companies responsible for the actions of their drivers. Many cab companies try to avoid liability by arguing that their drivers are merely independent contractors, not employees. This argument was successful for years until the taxi cab accident attorneys at Zehl & Associates were able to overcome the argument with a fresh and aggressive approach.

Houston, the fourth-largest city in the United States, is a bustling metropolis 24 hours a day. As a result, cab drivers tend to move quickly in an attempt to maximize their fares and get passengers to their destinations as rapidly as possible. This frenetic activity can and does lead to numerous accidents and injuries every year. Large cab companies, like Yellow Cab and Liberty Cab, have a habit of bullying injured passengers, hoping they will become frustrated and just go away. The personal injury trial attorneys at Zehl & Associates, who have recovered more than millions in verdicts and settlements, will devote whatever time and resources are necessary to ensuring receive the full compensation you deserve for all your injuries and damages.
