Wrongful Death Award in Cab Case

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
A North Carolina jury awarded $1.5 million in a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of a pedestrian hit by a cab.  Before his death, the man suffered brain damage that ultimately killed him eight months after the accident.   The pedestrian victim was blind - thankfully, there were witnesses to the accident which helped avoid a miscarriage of justice. 

One big problem with cab accident lawsuits in Maryland is the taxi cabs are typically insured for only $20,000 in coverage, an amount below the minimum limits.  How do cab companies get away with having less than the minimum insurance?  They use MAIF which is a Maryland state government operated insurance company that slipped by the legislature when they increased the minimum limits.  Hopefully, this gets fixed in the next legislative session.
