Were You Injured by a Licensed Cab?
The type of cab you were in can impact your case. New York City’s Taxi and Limousine Commission is the licensing organization within the city and surrounding boroughs. They require all licensed cabs to carry at least $100,000 in liability insurance per person and $300,000 total per accident. This ensures that funds are in place to pay for your injuries.
Who’s at Fault?
Before filing a personal injury lawsuit, we need to determine who was at fault for the wreck. If you were hit by a cab or injured while riding in one, the likely conclusion would be that the cab driver or taxi company is to blame. Rather than simply assuming this, we need to investigate what happened to determine if any third parties have shared liability:
- Another driver involved in the collision could also be at fault
- The city could be responsible if dangerous roads were to blame
- A cab manufacturer or maintenance company could be negligent if a faulty part caused the wreck
File Your Personal Injury Lawsuit Quickly
You should speak with a Queens taxi accident lawyer as soon as possible and file your claim right away. There is a statute of limitations in New York that requires you to file your lawsuit within three years of an injury. If you exceed this time constraint, you’ll miss the opportunity to file suit and seek compensation.
Who Can Seek Compensation After a Taxicab Wreck
Anyone injured by a taxicab accident can sue the driver or company, as long as these parties were negligent or responsible. This means that you can seek compensation if you were any of the following:
