Taxis are as synonymous with New York City as the Empire State Building or Times Square. Over half a million people take taxicabs across the boroughs every single day. With so many cabs on the road, this means taxi accidents are a relatively common occurrence. Whether you were injured as a passenger of a taxi, were struck by a cab while walking or biking, or were in another vehicle that was involved in an accident with a taxi driver, you need a competent attorney to protect your right to compensation.
With a taxi accident claim, your lawyer will need to determine fault and identify any and all potential sources of compensation – whether this is the insurance policy of the taxi driver, cab company, and/or your own policy. The goal is to maximize your recovery so it covers all of your losses and expenses – now and into the future.
In New York City, all yellow taxicabs and other licensed vehicles are required to carry the following minimum insurance in the event of an accident:
So-called “gypsy cabs” may not carry this insurance, however. These unlicensed taxis may only have minimum liability coverage of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident, if they have insurance at all.
Even in complex cases involving uninsured or underinsured taxis, our New York City taxi accident attorneys at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. can take the rights steps to help you recover a fair settlement or award. We have been helping pedestrians, cyclists, taxi passengers, and others who have been injured in taxicab accidents since 1987.
