New York City Car Crash Attorney Helps Taxi Accident Victims Get Compensated

Taxis are big part of life in every city. Yellow cabs make about half a million trips every day, transporting more than 600,000 people. Livery cabs or car services carry almost 500,000 passengers every day. Given this volume, it is not surprising that there are hundreds of taxi accidents in every major city in the United States each year. When such a crash was the result of negligence, victims may be eligible for compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

Why Are Taxi Accidents Complicated?

Taxi cases are more complicated than those involving other motor vehicles. One reason is those taxi companies are organized into mini-companies to limit the amount that an injured person can collect. Another is that yellow cab companies usually carry the minimum amount of insurance required. So-called gypsy cabs carry even less. All injured parties must share the coverage, whatever it is. This means that an attorney seeking damages for an injured client will need to explore all possible sources of compensation.
