Injured In A Taxi Crash? Get Legal Advice Without Delay.
Driver fatigue, traffic congestion and time pressure are factors that contribute to many taxi accidents in New York City and statewide. Every year, about 8,000 to 10,000 collisions involving taxis in the metro area result in injuries or deaths. If you were injured in one of this year’s taxi crashes, you will need prompt, quality medical care, as well as reliable legal advice.

We recommend that you seek an attorney’s counsel right away to maximize your options for recovering the compensation that you need to cover:
- Medical bills
- Related expenses
- Lost wage replacement
- Pain and suffering
A detailed investigation should ideally begin right away, while eyewitness testimonies are credible and the effects of your injuries are clearly apparent.
Who Is Liable To Compensate You?
The average person has a very difficult time determining how to pursue compensation for injuries occurring in taxi crashes. The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission requires licensed taxis and car services to carry a $100,000/$300,000 liability policies. Unlicensed taxis must carry $25,000/$50,000 policies. These dollar amounts are often insufficient to cover the true costs of a serious injury.
Other sources of compensation may be available, such as the taxi driver’s personal auto insurance or the injured person’s underinsured motorist policy. However, most people do not know how to discover or get access to all insurance benefits that they are eligible for after a taxi accident. As with any car accident, time is of the essence after a taxi accident. The sooner a skilled car accident lawyer is on your side, the more options there may for you to get the financial recovery that you need.
