Taxi Accidents In And Around NYC

Everyone who lives in or visits New York knows about New York taxi drivers. They're aggressive. They're fast. They're not always careful.

If you are a pedestrian hit by a taxicab, a passenger in a taxi that collided with another vehicle, or the driver or a passenger in another car that was struck by a taxi, you may be legally entitled to financial compensation. You may also be entitled to compensation if you were injured in an accident involving a driver from Uber or Lyft. However, regardless of the specific circumstances in your case, you could be facing serious challenges in getting the money you deserve.
