Taxi Accidents in New York
An experienced lawyer can handle your case
Taxi drivers in and around New York are expected to drive responsibly, especially when the safety of passengers is in their hands. That’s why taxi drivers are required to possess a clean driving record with no convictions for vehicular manslaughter, drugs, or alcohol. But that doesn’t guarantee that a taxi driver will always drive responsibly. Reckless driving, distracted driving, and drowsy driving are often the causes of most accidents involving taxis.
An experienced auto accident attorney at Giampa Law can fight to hold taxi companies – and their drivers – accountable for negligence. With decades of experience, we know how to handle cases involving taxi companies. Contact us today.
We’ll fight for justice
Here’s how taxi accidents happen:
- A taxi hits your vehicle
- A taxi hits a pedestrian or bicyclist
- You’re the passenger in a taxi that is involved in an accident
If you were a passenger in a taxi that was involved in a crash, either the cab driver or the other motorist is at fault. If the accident was caused by another motorist’s negligence, neither you nor the cab driver are at fault. You and the cab driver can legally sue the at-fault driver or medical expenses, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
The other driver’s insurance company may try to pin the blame on the cab driver, leaving you caught in the middle as two insurance companies argue over liability. But a highly skilled New York auto accident attorney will investigate and build a strong case for the compensation you deserve. With a vast knowledge of New York’s legal system, Giampa Law will aggressively pursue your case.
The compensation you deserve
If you have been injured in a taxi accident because of the cab driver’s negligence, you need Giampa Law on your side. Taxi companies are required to carry commercial insurance that covers vehicle damage and injuries sustained in an accident. Their insurance companies may be quick to offer a settlement. However, that doesn’t guarantee that all medical expenses and loss of wages will be covered. The insurance companies only have one interest in mind: lowering their own costs.
But as you’re unable to work and collect a paycheck, the medical bills continue to pile up. That’s not justice. Our auto accident attorneys at Giampa Law know how to negotiate with taxi insurance companies. If all they have to offer is a small settlement, we’ll take them to trial and ensure that you’re compensated to the fullest extent of your losses. Contact us today for a free consultation. You have nothing to lose.
