Taxi Accident Lawyer in New York
Sullivan & Brill, LLP: Here Whenever You Need Us
With city streets full of taxi cabs rushing between rides and passengers,
the potential for an accident and injury is great. It is an issue that
needs to be taken care of, and liable parties need to be held accountable
for their actions. This is where we come in.
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we are committed to advocating on behalf
of individuals who have been injured by a reckless or negligent taxi driver,
both in and out of the cab. Taxi profits are built on the ability to carry
as many passengers as possible on a shift. It is not uncommon for taxi
drivers to drive recklessly or at excessive speeds, working to move passengers
as quickly as possible and get the next ride. These are prime conditions
for an accident.
Maintenance and care of the taxi cab can also contribute to an accident.
We will investigate the general condition of the car or vehicle to determine
if it was kept up to a standard of safety, including the condition of
the brakes and other critical components.
New York City Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting on Your Behalf
Injured individuals are not always just the passengers. Injury victims
- Bike riders
- Other drivers
Individuals are injured each year by the reckless driving of taxi drivers.
If you have been hurt by a taxi driver as a non-passenger, whether on
the street or in your own vehicle, you most likely have a claim against
that taxi company. We can help you pursue a case against the negligent
driver. If you do not have documentation of the driver or the cab company,
we will investigate to find the responsible driver and help hold him or
her accountable. This includes reviewing all evidence such as surveillance
cameras, witness accounts, and other records pointing to the driver.
Just as with car accidents, there is a three-year statute of limitations
for taxi accidents. It is important that you speak with a qualified lawyer
and begin your case as soon as possible.
