Harborcreek Taxi Accident Injures 2 Erie Injury Lawyer News

October 3, 2011, ERIE, PA — Two Maine men were injured as passengers in an Erie taxicab accident. The Erie County accident happened on Interstate 90 in Harborcreek Township near Mile Marker 30.5 near 2:30 p.m. yesterday.

According to early reports, the taxicab driver was eastbound when he lost control on the wet pavement, slid through the median and crossed into the westbound lanes. The passengers in the Pennsylvania taxi accident were two men from Portland, Maine whose identities were not released. The two men were injured as a result of the Erie car crash and taken to UPMC-Hamot hospital. Their conditions were not available but some reports described their injuries as moderate.

A second vehicle involved in the Pennsylvania Interstate collision appeared to have been westbound but its driver and passengers reported no injuries, fortunately.

The taxi driver was also injured and taken to UPMC-Hamot. He was arrested upon being released from the hospital for charges unrelated to the Interstate accident.

It is our hope that the two Maine men are soon out of the hospital and back with their families.

Taxi Passengers Entitled to Special Legal Status

Passengers in taxis may be entitled to special legal status that lessens the burden of proving liability. Unfortunately, the corporate/lessor structure of many taxi-cab companies and their drivers sometimes makes finding the full insurance coverage a challenge. People injured in Pennsylvania taxi-cab accidents should call an experienced Pennsylvania injury lawyer who knows how to find insurance coverage despite a complicated relationship between taxi-driver and cab company.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
