Losses You Could Recover Following a New Jersey Taxi Accident

According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, approximately 200,000 car accidents occur each year. With hundreds of taxis in New Jersey ferrying people to work, airports, tourist attractions, and errands, taxi accidents are inevitable.

If you are injured in a taxi accident, New Jersey law allows you to seek compensation for damages from the responsible party. You can file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit to recover:

  • Past and future medical expenses from your taxi accident injury
  • Lost income if you miss work due to your taxi accident
  • Lost future income if you are unable to return to work temporarily or permanently
  • Pain and suffering due to your taxi accident injuries

Shulman & Hill’s personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and resources to help you pursue justice and fair compensation after a taxi collision.

Our Taxi Accident Attorneys in New Jersey Can Fight for You

At Shulman & Hill, our taxi accident lawyers in New Jersey advocate for the legal rights of accident victims. With decades of collective experience representing clients in New Jersey and New York City, we are familiar with state and local injury laws pertaining to cab drivers in both states.

Our legal team has fought for injury clients to secure more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements. We aim to provide personalized, compassionate legal representation to help you face the challenges associated with your taxi accident injuries.

We fight for all our taxi accident clients on a contingency-fee basis. We do not collect any fees up front, by the hour, or out of pocket. Your attorney will only receive a payment if and when they secure a financial award for you. This payment arrangement allows us to promptly begin your case, as well as limits your financial risk.

Determining Who Is Responsible for Your New Jersey Taxi Collision Injuries

When Shulman & Hill takes a case, we leave no stone unturned during our investigation. We will review all the evidence, including videos and photos of the accident scene, witness statements, and official reports to establish who was at fault. Sometimes, a single driver is responsible, but often there are additional considerations.

These cases can become complicated as insurance companies fight to establish fault. That’s why you may benefit from having a taxi accident attorney on your side who isn’t afraid to protect your legal right to compensation from all the responsible parties. That’s where Shulman & Hill can help.

The Statute of Limitations for Filing Suit After a New Jersey Taxi Accident

In general, New Jersey’s statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years, per NJ Rev. Stat. § 2A;14-2. This time frame could differ depending on the circumstances of what happened. It is, therefore, in your interests to reach out to our firm as soon as possible after your accident occurs.

While you focus on recovering from your injuries, the injury lawyers at Shulman & Hill can begin gathering evidence and investigating your case. Since taxi accident cases can be complicated, with multiple responsible parties, we urge you to begin the legal process right away.

Common Causes of New Jersey Taxi Accidents

Taxi drivers spend long hours on the road every day, subject to many of the factors that cause car accidents in New Jersey, such as:

Distracted Driving

Drivers distracted by things inside and outside the vehicle are less attentive and more likely to crash. Common distractions include:

  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Adjusting internal controls, like mirrors, windows, radio, and navigation
  • Reaching for food or other items inside the vehicle
  • Talking to or looking at passengers inside the vehicle
  • Vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, or obstacles in the roadway
  • Construction or utility work
  • Poor road conditions, such as large potholes and cracks
  • Inclement weather conditions

Distracted driving takes the driver’s attention off the road and has led to thousands of vehicle crashes in New Jersey alone. Drivers who cause taxi accidents while distracted may bear liability for the injuries they cause.

Driving While Intoxicated

Drivers who drive while intoxicated pose a severe risk to others on the road, as alcohol inhibits judgment. Whether the cab operator or a third-party driver causes an accident because they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they can be held liable for the taxi accident.

Fatigued Driving

Taxi drivers make up a small percentage of drivers on New Jersey roads, but they are often on the road longer. If a driver knowingly went without sleep for more than 24 hours prior to causing a taxi accident, they could also bear responsibility for the accident.

Whether you are a cab driver, passenger, or third party in a taxi accident, you should not have to pay for someone else’s careless or reckless behavior. Shulman & Hill can help you pursue compensation from the at-fault party, so you can recover from your injuries without any financial worries.
