Our Lawyers Overcome Common Defenses Used by Taxi Cab Companies and Maximize our Client’s Damages: call 1-888-603-3636 for a Free Consultation

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.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a taxi cab accident, contact the Houston taxi cab injury attorneys at Zehl & Associates, LLP today for a free consultation.

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.

There are many common causes of taxi cab accidents, including:

  • Driver Negligence
  • Driver Recklessness
  • Intoxication
  • Fatigue, Lack of Rest
  • Failure to Pay Attention
  • Failure to Yield
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Signals
  • Distracted Driving, Use of a Cell Phone or GPS Unit While Driving
  • Lack of Proper Training
  • Speeding to Maximize the Customer Count

Unfortunately, there is no shortage of reasons for taxi cab driver accidents. The Taxi Cab Accident Litigation Team at Zehl & Associates, PC, will thoroughly investigate your accident, the cab company and the taxi driver himself in order to properly determine liability. Remember, if you have been injured in a collision involving a taxi cab, seek medical attention immediately!

Describe your case

All communications are private and confidential.

I hired Zehl when I was severely injured doing a Plug and Abandonment job offshore. I'm glad I did, they were incredible. They walked me through every step of the case, made sure that I got to the best doctors, and were always there for me when I was having trouble paying bills when the case was pending. I always felt that I was in good hands and well taken care of, which relieved a lot of my stress and helped put me at ease. Eric and the team at Zehl and Associates represented my best interests, I highly recommend them.

I was hesitant to file a lawsuit when I was injured at work, because I didn't know what to expect and my company kept telling me that "they were going to take care of me." But the medical bills kept piling up, I wasn't able to work and make money to support my family. Eric Allen and the staff at Zehl put me at ease about the process, kept me to up date about what was going on, and devoted all their resources to making sure that I had the money I needed to pay all my medical expenses and take care of myself and my family. I can honestly say that working with Eric, Ryan and the Zehl team was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Thank you.

After I was injured at a chemical plant, I needed time to recover from my injuries and a lawyer who could stand up for me and my family against my company. Ryan Zehl was recommended to me from a coworker. Ryan worked hard to prepare my case and kept me and my family in the loop through the entire process. At the end they were able to get me a settlement that was much more than we had expected. I’d recommend Ryan and the team at Zehl to anyone who needs an injury lawyer who’s aggressive, honest and dedicated to protecting their clients.

Thanks to the hard work from Ryan and his team, a dangerous product that could have hurt thousands of people is now off the street. Even though I suffered from the lack of safety checks from this product, I am happy to have “taken the bullet”, to keep other people safe. Special thanks to Tommy Servos, who kept me informed through out the whole trial and helped me get a record recovery!

I grew up in Texas and went to work on an oil rig just like my dad did. It was a point of pride to follow in the same career path as my father, but no one warned me about the constant pending danger of being on the rig. My team and I are professionals that follow the rules and keep safety as priority number 1. But there are some factors to this job that can’t be controlled. Just like the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill, my rig suffered an explosion due to the lack of up keep and maintenance from our superiors. Ryan Zehl came to our aid to get the compensation my crew and I needed. Having a Houston personal injury attorney from back home represent us was truly a personal and eye opening experience. He truly cared about us and thanks to him, I can recover with my family and the safety precautions on the rig have never been tighter.

Husband was killed at a refinery to the lack of safety checks performed by the company he worked for. When I found out he was gone I was so devastated and scared for our family I wasn’t sure what the next step would be. At first I thought his company would do the right thing and take care of us. But was I wrong. They tried to say we could only recover worker’s comp and had no claim against the company. I hired Ryan because of their experience with plant and refinery accident cases. I was so impressed at how professional and caring Ryan and his entire team were. They would call to check on me and my kids and always made sure I had money to pay bills and get presents for my kids on there birthdays and at Christmas. I don’t know where we’d be without there help. Because of Ryan and his team, I was able to pay off the house, put a trust together for my kids to make sure they’re able to pay for college, and never have to worry about having enough money to take care of myself and the kids again. We are so grateful for everything they did for us. Thank you.

I came to Zehl Law Firm after I was injured in a car accident. They made me feel comfortable and explained things so I understood what to expect. Along with excellent communication. They were always quick to respond and update me on everything. Kelvin Hayes did a great job with my case and I would be happy to refer him to anyone looking for a auto injury lawyer.

I highly recommend Zehl Law! When I was injured on the job, I reached out to Ryan’s office and was greeted with support. I was well taken and care of and really appreciate how the law firm professionals went above and beyond their call of duty to help me. Now I can recover without having to worry about money until I am well enough to get back on the job. Thanks guys!
