More About Our Expertise As Premier Los Angeles Limousine Accident Lawyers Near You!
Many so-called limousine accident attorneys in the state of California are not specialists in limousine law. These limousine accident lawyers have no clue about the vast number of legal issues with transportation carrier laws. Hence, these injury lawyers don’t have the experience necessary to take on a commercial transportation enterprise. And getting the victims paid the most accident compensation requires an expert like Ehline Law Firm. The choice is clear, hire a dupe who leaves a lot of money on the table for your accident, or hire us to win big.
Ehline Law Firm is different; we are better. Our head livery accident attorney, Michael Ehline, had owned a limo business before becoming an attorney in Los Angeles, California, after passing the State Bar Exam in 2005. So Michael not only knows the law codes and precedents, but he understands the transportation, accidents, and the carriage business inside and out. Of particular interest, Michael was the personal driver for comedian Rodney Dangerfield.
So he had to know all the regulations to comply with state and federal livery laws – a tremendous advantage for any client-facing such a catastrophic, depressing personal injury accident compensation claim. Now you can hire Michael and our law offices as your local Los Angeles car accident attorneys.

Although limo laws are similar to cab regulations, they are not the same. Limousines, limo buses, and charter party carriers usually get treated the same under regulatory law. One difference is the body style of the cars. Limousines are generally stretched into longer-than-stock vehicles and are far more luxurious than an Uber or taxi ride-sharing vehicle.
Limousine drivers also require exceptional driving credentials to operate these large motorized conveyances. Limousines also have many blind spots and need a greater stopping distance to avoid an accident. Furthermore, renting large blocks of time is not something for which most taxi companies are known. Mostly, taxis are for trips to and from an airport or local drinking bar.
And unlike taxis, limousines are legally allowed to provide alcohol to adult passengers while the vehicle rolls in traffic. Often, charter limos have full wet bars in the back of their transports. But this can be a severe problem when hiring a limousine for a high school prom or Quinceanera. Again, this is another reason why different rules for limousines do not apply to passengers’ smaller-sized vehicle carriers.
Because of this, minors could have access to that booze. So the limo operator needs to stow the alcohol in the trunk to keep it from the children. Recently, an intoxicated woman jumped out of a moving limo on the freeway.
In another terrible case, several women were burned to death in a highly publicized rear passenger compartment fire accident in another case. The news media interviewed Michael Ehline in that case accident here.
NBC News interviewed Los Angeles limousine attorney and former chauffeur Michael Ehline immediately as to his opinion, writing:
Another possibility comes from Michael Ehline, an attorney specializing in limousine law and related accident claims.
‘He wonders if the air bladders keeping the tires from scraping against the wheel wells in the 14-year-old limousine might have deflated.
“What will happen is those rear tires can scrape against the rear wheel wells and remember tires are made out of petroleum products. Once it gets to flashpoint the tire will literally ignite and that heat build-up next to that gas tank can actually ignite that gas tank,” Ehline said.’
So it’s not just severe personal injuries that can arise from limo crashes. Sometimes these accident cases include expensive, high-profile wrongful death actions that must be filed quickly in a court near you.
In other words, not all Los Angeles limousine personal injuries will be just against one defendant. If a city bus hits you, you need to sue them as the liable party.
