Can I Recover Compensation for a Taxi Accident Injury?

Taxi accidents can be devastating for all those involved. Please continue reading and reach out to a seasoned New York City personal injury lawyer from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about taxi accident liability and how our legal team can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one.

Who is responsible for a taxi accident?

When dealing with a taxi accident, it can be difficult to determine liability. Usually, it depends on the structure of the taxi company and how the accident happened. Different taxi companies are modeled in different ways. Sometimes, taxi drivers own or rent their vehicles. In other cases, the taxi company owns the vehicle and the driver is employed by the company.

Passengers usually will not know the driver’s relationship with their company until after an investigation into the accident begins. If the taxi driver caused the accident, their liability is usually determined by their relationship with the taxi company. If a taxi driver owns their vehicle, they are usually responsible for any damages incurred. If the driver rents the vehicle from a taxi company, there is a chance both the driver and the company can be held liable. Sometimes, a taxi company may qualify for sole liability if the company owns the vehicle and employs the driver.

If you have been injured due to another party’s negligence, you may wish to hold that party responsible. This can be done by filing a personal injury claim to pursue a lawsuit. A claim for a taxi accident proceeds just like any other car accident claim. If you are a driver who was hit by a taxi, you can file a third-party insurance claim with the taxi’s insurance company. As a passenger, you can file claims with the driver’s insurance unless the driver was not the negligent party.

What compensation am I entitled to?

There are different ways an injured party can recover compensation after being involved in a taxi accident. Through a personal injury lawsuit, the negligent party may owe the individual compensation for damages incurred due to the accident. This can include the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Punitive damages
