Taxi Accident Attorneys
For the taxi cab driver, time is money. The more fares he or she gets in a shift, the better the payday. For that reason, many cabbies cut corners on safety. They often drive too fast or carelessly. Combine this with the fact that much of their driving is done in crowded streets of cities like Perth Amboy, Jersey City, Newark, Elizabeth, New Brunswick and East Orange, it is not surprising that there are many serious taxi accidents every year.

What To Do After Being Injured In A Taxi Accident
You can help your lawyer build a strong case for compensation after a taxi accident. Things you can do to help include:
- Get names and contact information from all drivers, witnesses and the injured whenever possible
- Use your phone to take photographs of the accident scene
- Obtain medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident. Even if you are not hospitalized, it is important to be checked out by a doctor who knows where to look.
By obtaining as much information as possible about the accident, you will strengthen your lawyer’s efforts to obtain maximum compensation after a taxi, limo or car service accident.
Insurance Issues In Taxi Accident Cases
Very often taxis have limited insured coverage. They also do not typically carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage for payment of your medical bills. Whatever level of coverage they carry, taxi operators and the victims of accidents involving taxis are both at risk. This is because insurance adjusters are not in the business of helping policyholders or those injured by their policyholders. Rather, their goal is to deny, delay and decline claims, helping the insurance company improve its bottom line. Insurance companies and their employees are not on your side. Their goal is to save the insurance company money by giving you as little as possible. That is why you will need the team of experienced lawyers at CourtLaw. Our attorneys are not afraid of insurance companies and are always willing to take on the big insurers and their many lawyers on behalf of clients.
