Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Helping Victims of Taxi Accidents in New York City
One of the most common ways that people get around New York City is by taxi cab. In fact, New Yorkers take over 330,000 trips by taxi every day. There are 13,000 yellow taxis spread across the roads of New York, plus even more green taxi cabs that participate in the Boro Taxi program. Many of the drivers of these taxis are prone to cutting corners on safety to get where they need to go in the shortest possible time. Whether you’re a pedestrian, bicyclist, or even a passenger in a taxi, these shortcuts on safety can threaten your physical well-being
Dangerous taxi cab drivers should be required to compensate victims
Taxis have a duty to drive safely and responsibly, and drivers who prioritize speed over safety should be forced to pay for injuries resulting from dangerous behavior. If you’ve been injured in an accident with a New York taxi, you may have a right to recover compensation for any medical expenses, lost work, or pain and suffering you experience. Retain knowledgeable and aggressive legal help when you seek damages for your injuries after a taxi cab accident. Contact Manhattan taxi accident lawyer Leandros A. Vrionedes to find out if you may have a basis to file a lawsuit after your taxi accident.
Claims against taxi drivers are not always simple
When a taxi driver is responsible for injuring you in an accident, there is not always a clear answer as to which insurance company is responsible for compensating victims of that driver. Each taxi driver is required to carry insurance. However, when you’re seriously injured in an accident with a cab, your medical expenses, lost earnings and rehabilitation costs are likely to exceed the amount of bodily injury liability coverage available under the driver’s policy.
An experienced attorney can help you receive full compensation
New York personal injury lawyer Leandros A. Vrionedes is experienced in exploring other options for compensation of accident victims, such as insurance carried by the taxi cab company that employs the driver, or even that of a second driver involved in the accident. Rather than navigating the complex network of insurance carriers and claim settlement negotiations yourself, get help from a New York car accident attorney with decades of experience. Contact Leandros A. Vrionedes today to find out about your available options for seeking money damages after an accident.
