What Defines a Passenger?

Atlanta is a bustling city with many tourist attractions and key destinations. Every day, countless taxi cabs go about picking up passengers and taking them to watch a Braves game at Turner Field, catch a flight at the bustling Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, or attend a work conference at the Georgia International Convention Center, among other activities. While most cab rides go off without a hitch, some lead to crashes that cause considerable damages to faultless passengers.

When it comes to taxi service, the definition of a "passenger" is not just limited to someone sitting in the taxi cab while it is in motion. A person becomes a passenger the moment a cab stops for him/her, and s/he remains a passenger until s/he has gotten out of the taxicab and reached a place of safety away from the taxicab.

Who Is at Fault for My Accident?

In some cases, identifying the liable party may be a simple task whereas in others, it may require a thorough investigation of the facts. The following parties may be held liable in a taxi cab accident case:

  • The Taxi Driver: The taxi cab business model rewards efficiency and speed. This encourages less scrupulous drivers to engage in dangerous driving behaviors, such as speeding, tailgating, and weaving through traffic, for the sake of more pay at the end of the day.
  • The Cab Company: Cab companies are responsible for properly screening prospective employees in the hiring process, providing them with adequate training, and supervising them on their progress. They are also responsible for keeping taxi cabs in safe operating condition.
  • The City Government: The City of Atlanta is responsible for regulating the taxi industry and conducting inspections of taxi cabs to ensure they are in working order.

Each party described above has the duty to uphold their own particular standard of care. Failure to do so can constitute negligence if it results in an accident.
