You Could Claim Damages After a Taxi Accident in Brooklyn, New York

When you suffer injuries in a taxi accident, you have the right to seek compensatory damages from the responsible party and their insurance company. Damages you could request in a Brooklyn taxi accident claim include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future lost income
  • Past and future pain and suffering

The taxi accident lawyers at Shulman & Hill understand how even seemingly minor injuries can affect every aspect of your life. You should not have to pay because someone else was careless or reckless. Our legal team can tell you more about how you can recover financial damages for your losses.

Who Is At Fault in a Brooklyn Taxi Accident?

According to the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT), taxis represent around 40% of the vehicles in Brooklyn. With so many cabs on the road, taxi accidents are almost inevitable.

The legal team at Shulman & Hill can investigate your taxi accident to identify who was fundamentally responsible. It could include:

  • The taxi driver
  • The taxi company
  • A third-party driver
  • The entity responsible for road repairs and maintenance
  • A vehicle manufacturer or distributor

A cab accident in Brooklyn could occur as a direct result of someone’s reckless or careless actions, such as running a red light. Sometimes, however, the cause is less clear. For instance, if the taxi’s brakes failed due to a faulty part, you could file a claim against the defective part manufacturer.

Shulman & Hill reviews the related to your taxi accident and establishes fault, so we can hold the right parties accountable for your injuries.
