Were You Injured In A Rideshare, Limousine, Taxi Or Livery Cab?

Drivers of for-hire vehicles are under pressure to transport as many passengers as possible each day in order to make the maximum amount of money. As a result, they may engage in overly aggressive driving, drive while fatigued or display other negligence that puts both passengers and pedestrians in danger.

Navigating Legal Obstacles After A Rideshare Accident

In today’s digital world, rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft are convenient and affordable. However, when accidents happen, it can be tricky to navigate the legal implications. Uber and Lyft provide commercial insurance policies, but there are monetary caps and strict parameters about when that coverage kicks in.

It’s important to have a strong advocate on your side when dealing with hard-hitting insurance companies that may try to reduce, deny or delay your claim. We can level the playing field to ensure that you don’t get stuck with a lowball settlement.

Your Bill Of Rights As A Cab Or Livery Car Passenger

The New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission (NYC TLC) is the local agency that regulates for-hire ride services, including rideshares, taxis and livery cars. The commission has enacted a Bill of Rights for taxicab passengers and a separate Bill of Rights for livery car passengers.

As a rider in a medallion taxi (yellow cab), here are a few of your rights:

  • The right to a safe and courteous driver who obeys all traffic laws
  • The right to working seat belts for all passengers
  • The right to a driver who does not use a cellphone while driving

As a rider in a livery car, you have the following rights, among others:

  • The right to travel in a car that is in good condition and has passed all required inspections
  • The right to working seat belts for all passengers
  • The right to a driver who does not use a cellphone while driving

Our attorney will advise you on your full range of options for recovering compensation after a taxi or livery cab accident in the Bronx. You may be entitled to recover money for your pain and suffering and other damages in addition to no-fault insurance benefits.
