When we use a taxi or limo service, we trust that the professionals driving us will respect us paying customers and as fellow individuals. However, every year, we see reports of limo and taxi passengers who have been preyed upon, brutally attacked, and harmed the actions of these drivers. In these cases, victims may be eligible to seek damages not only from the driver who hurt them but from the company that was employing that driver, as well.
At Okabe & Haushalter, our experienced, nationally-recognized team of legal counselors not only handles victim representation before our criminal justice system but also in civil matters, as well. That means our Los Angeles crime victim attorneys are uniquely qualified to ensure that our clients who have suffered a limo or taxi attack receive the attention and advocacy they deserve.

THE "SAFER CHOICE"
In the age of ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft, taxis, limos, and car services have been lauded as the “safer” choice for passengers. This narrative, however, has proven to be somewhat of a myth. In 2015, The Atlantic found that there is not significant data to support the fact that taxis and limos are safer than ride-sharing services. In fact, assaults and other crimes perpetrated against taxi and limo passengers continue to grab headlines all over the country.
Passengers of limos and taxis have reported:
- Sexual assault and harassment
