During special times we often hire limousines to carry our loved ones and ourselves to and from memorable events. As we are planning for a prom, a wedding, or an enjoyable night on the town, we are thinking about looking good, getting there on time, and riding in style.
We are being responsible by having a designated driver. We expect that the limousine company will provide safe, well maintained vehicles and professionally trained, safety conscious drivers. We believe that limousines are large sturdy cars and that limousine drivers are specially trained and specially licensed professionals. The government would not let them be on the road if they were not safe, would it?
The Dolan Law Firm has represented a number of people who have been injured in limousine accidents. Recently we successfully represented a young man who was severely injured when a limousine driver parked haphazardly on a busy street and caused our client's hand to become stuck between the limousine door and a passing bus.
Instead of looking out for the safety of his patrons, the driver was sitting in the driver's seat not paying attention to the vehicles around him or to his passengers who were getting back into the limousine.
The limousine driver and his insurance company claimed that our inebriated client was responsible for the accident that mangled his hand. We are proud to have helped a special young man begin the long road to repairing his life.
