Frequently Asked Questions About Fort Lauderdale Taxi Accidents

Does Florida’s “no-fault” insurance law apply to taxi cabs?

Florida’s no-fault insurance law does not apply to taxi accidents as taxis are excluded from the statute. Instead, taxi drivers are required to carry the aforementioned bodily injury liability coverage and property damage liability coverage.

What does it mean that a taxi is a “common carrier”?

An individual or business that transports people or goods is considered to be a common carrier. Typically a common carrier offers its services to the general public and is regulated by the government, hence the specific insurance requirements that apply to Florida cab drivers. A common carrier is also typically held to a higher standard of care and might be found negligent even when an ordinary driver might not be found negligent for the same conduct.
