New York Taxi Accident Lawyers
Taxi cabs can be a convenient way to get around when public transportation isn’t a good option. Taxis may be a convenient option, but they may not always be a safe option. Taxi drivers have a strong incentive to pick up as many fares as possible, which may motivate them to drive too fast and even recklessly. The cab driver might experience a hundred close calls without incident, but it only takes one crash to injure a paying passenger.
If you get hurt in a taxi accident in the Hudson Valley, you may have a right to collect money damages from the driver who caused the crash through careless or dangerous driving. Contact the seasoned and effective Poughkeepsie taxi accident lawyers at Ingber & Provost for immediate assistance after a New York taxi crash.
Liability in a taxi accident isn’t always straightforward
In a car accident involving two private cars where you’re one of the drivers, you may have experience in filing a no-fault claim with your insurer. If you’ve been injured as a taxi passenger, getting compensation can become far more complex. There are at least two other drivers who may be responsible for your injuries, if not more, as well as the added complication of the taxi driver’s employer, a company that is likely very experienced in fighting off accident victims’ claims. Getting the help of an experienced lawyer can be critical to receiving the money you’re owed after a serious taxi accident. The Poughkeepsie taxi crash lawyers at Ingber & Provost can handle a claim for damages on your behalf so that you get the money you need without months of battling with insurance lawyers or taxi companies.
Common injuries in a taxi accident can include:
- Whiplash injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other head or neck injuries
- Sprains, strains, or other soft tissue damage
- Broken or bruised ribs
- Broken arms or wrists
- Wrongful death
