Sullivan & Brill, LLP: Here Whenever You Need Us
With city streets full of taxicabs 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 can include:
- 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.
