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.
