When you hire a limousine service, you expect the drivers to be adequately trained and the luxury vehicles to be properly well-maintained. However, there have been severe limousine accidents all throughout the United States. A few years ago, twenty people were injured in a severe limo accident in New York. One passenger tragically died, and another passenger sustained a spinal cord injury. The crash occurred when the limousine driver lost control of the limousine and collided with a construction zone concrete divider.
In response to the fatal limo accident, the U.S. Department of Transportation closed down the limousine company, alleging the limo company "posed an imminent threat to public safety." The Department of Transportation pointed to the limo company's documented record of safety violations. The record revealed that the company repeatedly hired underage drivers with bad driving records. The family of the decedent filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the limo company.
There have been several high-profile limousine accidents in recent years in which passengers in the limos sustained severe injury or death. Customers of professional limo companies believe that they will receive a high degree of vehicle safety. However, careless or negligent chauffeurs often cause severe limousine accidents when they speed, fail to yield, run stop signs and red lights, drive distracted, or engage in other dangerous driving practices. The length and large weight of a limousine require special driving experience, and reasonable training is necessary for safe operation. When limousines are involved in an accident, the difference in weight between the limousine and a small passenger car can lead to devastating consequences for passengers in the smaller motor vehicle.
