Our Attorneys Can Take Your NYC Taxi Accident Case at No Upfront Cost

If you’re trying to decide whether you should hire Shulman & Hill to manage your personal injury case, cost should be the farthest thing from your mind. Our car accident attorneys don’t take a dime upfront or hourly.

Instead, we work on contingency, meaning our payment is contingent on the outcome of your case. We only receive payment if we secure compensation for your losses. We finance your entire case from start to finish. You don’t have anything to lose when you work with us.

The Services Our NYC Taxi Accident Attorneys Can Offer You

At Shulman & Hill, every case is personal to us. We understand that two people can be in the same accident and in the same taxi and still suffer different damages. Your lawyer can get to the bottom of what happened, who the responsible party is, and what damages you can recover while you recuperate from your injuries.

In doing so, they may complete the following tasks:

Collect Various Forms of Evidence

Like with any personal injury case, evidence sets the foundation for your claim against the other party. Your attorney may seek and compile evidence, such as:

  • The accident report
  • Your medical bills
  • Relevant photographs
  • Traffic camera footage
  • Maintenance records from the taxi company
  • Statements from eyewitnesses
  • Traffic citations

Make sure you write down everything you remember, too. Your personal testimony of the events leading up to, during, and following the crash is paramount to your case.

Prove Who Bears Responsibility for the Crash

The evidence we collect will help us determine the at-fault party in your case. It could have been the taxi driver, their employer, a government agency, another road user, or even a combination of these. Whoever it may be, we must demonstrate the following elements:

  • The other party was to exercise a legal duty of care and act with your best interests in mind.
  • This party breached their duty of care and was careless in their actions.
  • This carelessness caused the taxi accident, and you suffered injuries.
  • You sustained monetary and non-monetary damages as a result.

Determining fault can be straightforward but establishing liability (the financially responsible party) can be a little trickier. That’s why it’s crucial that you have an attorney who understands all aspects of the law and will always have your best interests in mind.

Speak to Other Parties

It can be overwhelming going back and forth with the taxi company, its legal and insurance representatives, and the New York court system. Our attorneys are no strangers to dealing with these entities, so let us take all calls and emails from them for you. Should they still contact you, direct them to us.

Fight for Compensation

We can request a settlement from the insurance company. If it doesn’t come back with a satisfactory offer, we will enter into negotiations until we reach common ground. An insurance settlement isn’t the only way you may recover compensation. For instance, we can file a lawsuit while going head-to-head with the insurance company.

If necessary, we are ready to represent you in a trial.

Recoverable Damages in an NYC Taxi Accident Case

If you were hurt in a taxi accident, you may pursue compensation from the taxi company’s insurance provider. According to the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS), yellow taxi cab companies must purchase a minimum insurance coverage of $100,000 per person/$300,000 per group.

Your lawyer can explore all avenues of compensation and determine a course of legal action that best suits your situation.

Time Limits on Filing a Lawsuit After a Taxi Accident in New York City

New York State imposes certain timelines for filing lawsuits after traffic accidents. Per CPLR § 214, personal injury claimants typically have three years to sue the liable party. If you lost a loved one, you generally have two years to bring a wrongful death lawsuit, as EPTL § 5-4.1 states.

Certain exceptions can shorten or lengthen this time frame. Whatever your applicable deadline is, it’s best to get started as soon as possible. This way, you can ensure that you file your lawsuit without risking missing the deadline.
