Arizona Compliance Requirements for Vehicles for Hire, Including Limousines

Arizona requires that limousines carry current and correct insurance documents.

The state’s Department of Transportation specifically requires minimum insurance coverage for limousine vehicles, depending upon their seating capacity, as follows:

  • 2-8 seating capacity: $250,000 minimum
  • 9-15 seating capacity: combined single limit at a minimum of $750,000 and an uninsured motorist rate of $300,000 minimum

Common Injuries from a Limousine Accident

Typically, limousine passengers do not wear seatbelts. This alone can yield severe and permanent injuries beyond what would be expected in a traditional car accident. When you factor in the mass of a limousine, the impact-related injuries are substantially more significant in a limo accident than in a car accident.

To understand the potential for injuries in a limousine accident, consider what a car occupant would experience in a car crash and then add to the mix the lack of seatbelts and the increased force involved in a limousine accident. Some common injuries to consider are:

  • Soft tissue injuries, including whiplash and back sprains
  • Head injuries, including concussions and brain damage
  • Arm and leg sprains and breaks
  • Chest wounds and broken ribs
  • Internal injuries
  • Cuts, scrapes, bruises

Zanes Law will review your medical reports and opinions of other experts to determine the damages you should recover for whatever injuries you sustain in your limousine accident in Phoenix. Call us today at 602-999-9999.

Identifying the At-Fault and Liable Party in a Phoenix Limousine Accident

As we have already established, you, as the party who hired a limousine service to send you a car and driver to take you to your destination, expected a certain “duty” from the limousine service and the driver: that they would take reasonable care to get you to your destination safely.

When the driver breached that duty with his negligent driving, he breached that duty of care. His breach resulted in an accident, and that accident caused your injuries which have cost you in a variety of ways.

Many Parties Can be Liable for Your Limousine Accident

With the above argument, we have fulfilled all the criteria the law requires for establishing fault and liability. However, even though the driver’s actions created the accident, the limousine service you hired is probably going to be held liable for his actions. The company is responsible for driver training, driver performance evaluations, and overall safety.

This rule generally applies unless the limousine company outsourced its driver roles to independent contractors. In this case, you would seek recoverable damages from your limousine driver.

We will consider the limousine service and the driver as potential at-fault and liable parties when reviewing your case. Possibly, we will also look into the limo manufacturing company if the vehicle somehow malfunctioned, causing the accident and your injuries.

The limousine accident lawyers in Phoenix at Zanes Law will take on the task of identifying the at-fault and liable parties in your accident a top priority. We will break our determination down, so you understand it, and we will proceed with legal action to get you compensated.

Types of Recoverable Damages in a Limousine Accident

The types of damages you can recover in your limousine accident resemble those you could recover in any other collision caused by someone else’s negligence.

Types of damages may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Expenses you have incurred for medical treatment
  • Prescription medicines and pain management medication
  • Wages you might have lost due to work missed because of your injuries
  • Negative impact on your future earning potential
  • Transportation to the hospital via ambulance

We will do everything from A to Z to recover the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have sustained. Call Zanes Law at 602-999-9999 so we can get to work.

Speaking of Deadlines, Your Time to Act is Limited by Arizona Law

Arizona law features a statute of limitations that limits the amount of time following an accident that you have to take legal action in a civil court.

By setting your wheels in motion in early, you can avoid missing this important deadline. In addition, your prompt action gives your lawyer that much more time to prepare your case.
