Millions of people take taxi rides in New York City every year. While most rides are uneventful, accidents do occur and can lead to severe injury. At the Law Offices of Barry M. Goldstein, I provide skilled representation for both tourists and residents of New York alike who have suffered an injury in a taxi accident. With more than 35 years of experience as a personal injury lawyer, I will protect your interests and fight for the compensation you deserve.
If you have been injured in an accident involving a taxi cab, contact me, a Queens taxi accident attorney, online or call 718.544.7100 to schedule a free initial consultation. You will not owe me any fees unless I recover damages for your injuries.
Taxi Cabs and Insurance Coverage
There are two basic types of licensed taxi cabs that operate in New York: medallion (or yellow cabs) and livery (or black cabs). These cabs are required by law to carry insurance coverage ranging from $100,000 to $300,000. This means that the most an insurance company will pay out is $300,000, although it may be possible to recover more from the owner of a medallion cab. As a skilled Queens personal injury lawyer, I can help you explore your options and let you know what other forms of compensation may be available to you.
There are also a number of so-called "gypsy" cabs in operation in New York. These cabs are unlicensed and may not carry any insurance at all. Whether you have been involved in an accident with a licensed or unlicensed cab, it is important to talk with a lawyer before you speak with an insurance company. I can help ensure that your right to full and fair compensation is protected. During your consultation with my Kew Gardens law firm, I can let you know what your options are. I provide representation for passengers and other people injured in taxi accidents.
