We are firmly devoted to ensuring a smooth litigation process by keeping stressful legal issues off your plate.
Limousines Owe Passengers a Heightened Duty of Care
Limousine operators may qualify as “common carriers” under Missouri law. Since common carriers such as buses, taxis, and limousines regularly transport members of the public, they owe passengers a heightened duty of care with regard to ensuring their safety. Thus, some limo operators may be required to comply with strict regulations for vehicle operation, maintenance, and insurance coverage.
Higher safety standards for limo operators may involve strict inspection and maintenance requirements for:
- Fuel systems
- Equipment maintenance
- More comprehensive insurance coverage
Unfortunately, some limo operators might cut corners regarding safety in order to create competitive prices. Thus, if a limo operator’s reckless decision to forego safety measures ultimately causes a devastating accident, they could be held liable for any resulting injuries from that accident. If such a situation leads to a person’s death, the limo operator could find themselves facing charges for criminally negligent homicide.
