Navigating through the bustling streets of New York can sometimes be a challenge, especially with the numerous yellow cabs that are synonymous with the city’s hustle and bustle.

Understanding Liability in Taxi Accidents
In New York, the law stipulates that all drivers, including taxi drivers, owe a duty of care to other road users. Any breach of this duty may render the cab driver liable for any ensuing damages. However, liability is not always straightforward; sometimes, it may be shared between the cab driver, the cab company, or even other parties involved in the accident. Here’s how we can help:
- Establishing negligence: We delve into the specifics of the accident to ascertain the negligent party or parties.
- Uncovering ownership: In some instances, the liability may extend to the cab company, especially if there were underlying issues that contributed to the accident, such as insufficient vehicle maintenance.
- Gathering evidence: Our team will meticulously collect all necessary evidence to build a robust case in your favor.
In crafting a solid case, we meticulously analyze all facets of the incident, ensuring that negligence is established, ownership issues are uncovered, and all necessary evidence is compiled to advocate effectively for your rights.
