How Our Taxi Accident Lawyers Handle Each Case

Shulman & Hill never backs down from a car accident case just because it is complicated. If you hire a taxi accident lawyer from our team, you would not have to worry about any aspect of your lawsuit. We are proud to be able to handle everything for our clients, including but not limited to:

  • Addressing all of your questions and concerns
  • Advising you on which legal decisions you should make and when you should make them
  • Investigating the accident to determine how the crash occurred and who is responsible
  • Gathering evidence from as many different sources as possible
  • Confronting the at-fault party by sending them a demand letter that asks their insurance company to pay for your damages
  • Filling out and submitting all necessary paperwork
  • Speaking with all other parties on your behalf so you do not have to risk saying something that the insurer could use against you
  • Negotiating for an appropriate settlement
  • Representing you in the courtroom if your case goes to trial
  • Disproving any allegations the insurer makes against you, such as accusing you of causing the crash or exaggerating your injuries

Many people in and around New York City depend on taxis to get around. This does not, however, mean that a reckless taxi driver or taxi company should be allowed to get away with their careless or illegal actions. Let us hold the at-fault party accountable, no matter who they are or how much power they wield.

What Your Taxi Accident Damages Could Cover

Our firm always fights hard for the damages each client needs to rebuild their lives after a devastating accident. You could be eligible for some or all of the following types of damages:

Medical Care

Each survivor will require different types of treatment. As long as you can prove (via evidence such as medical records and statements from relatives) that your medical bills are related to your accident injuries, the at-fault party’s insurer should pay for your treatment.

Loss of Income

The more serious your injury, the bigger its effect on your job and career trajectory.

For example, if you do physical labor, a broken wrist could force you to stay home with no income for weeks at a time. Alternatively, if you lost a hand, you could be pushed out of your chosen career altogether. You might have to retire early, go on government disability benefits, or expend a lot of time and money to try to qualify for a new career.

Whether your injuries are temporary or permanent, they have reduced your paycheck. You deserve compensation for the loss of the income your family relies on.

Pain and Suffering

A taxi accident can be a traumatic event. When you suffer a serious injury on top of experiencing an accident, you could be left with a series of physical and psychological injuries that continue to affect your life for years to come.

Past and Future Losses

All of the losses outlined above have already robbed you of health, happiness, career opportunities, and funds that should have been yours. What if your injuries are not fully healed at the time of your lawsuit? What if you have permanently lost the ability to work full-time or if your injury causes chronic pain?

For these and other reasons, we can seek compensation for the things you have already lost, as well as any anticipated losses. This money can help your family stay financially stable for years to come.

What to Do After a Taxi Accident

Taxi accidents are chaotic events. In a short time, crucial evidence could be misplaced or destroyed, and people’s memories of the event could become less reliable.

To strengthen your case and protect your rights, you should take the following actions promptly:

  • Get emergency medical treatment and/or see your regular doctor.
  • Get the other driver’s name, phone number, and insurance information.
  • Wait at the scene (unless you require emergency care).
  • Take as many photos of the scene as you can.
  • Provide the responding police officer with brief, factual answers to their questions.
  • Report the accident to your insurance company.

What If I Forgot to Take These Actions?

No one can reasonably expect an accident survivor to behave “perfectly” after a collision. Even if you did not complete some (or any) of the above tasks, you could still recover compensation by doing the following:

  • If you have not seen a doctor, do so as soon as possible.
  • Tell us everything you remember about the accident, including where it occurred, who was there, and what actions you took before, during, and after the crash.
  • Ask our advice on how to report the accident to your insurer and how the insurer may respond to your report.
  • Give us permission to request important personal documents, particularly medical records, that can form the foundation of your case file.

Waiting too long to file a personal injury case could jeopardize your right to damages. As CPLR § 214 explains, accident survivors generally have just three years in which to start a legal action against an at-fault party.

The team at Shulman & Hill encourages you to act promptly to protect your right to fair compensation after a preventable taxicab accident.
