At Choulos Choulos & Wyle, you will receive direct personal attention from attorneys who have been successfully handling claims against cab companies and other commercial entities for decades.
Taxi Accidents Involve Specific Laws, Duties and Considerations
Cab drivers in San Francisco and surrounding communities are notorious for dangerous driving behaviors like running red lights, making illegal lane changes and failure to yield the right of way to cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. They receive specific training on how to deal with accidents and are notorious for denying fault as well.
