Professional Driver Negligence
Drivers for limo and ride-sharing services are paid to safely transport customers from point A to point B. When an accident occurs involving one of these service vehicles, sometimes it is the result of another driver on the road. In other cases, however, it is due to the negligent actions of the professional driver.
Negligent actions in these cases include:
- Driving while intoxicated (drugs, alcohol, etc.)
- Distracted driving (talking, texting, etc.)
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Failure to obey traffic signs and signals
- Driving recklessly
When these accidents occur due to negligence, it is the ride-sharing or limo service company that can be held accountable. They are expected to provide customers with drivers who are responsible on the road. When that responsibility is not met, then the companies that employ these drivers may be found liable for any resulting injuries or deaths.
