Can I Sue if I Was in an Accident with a Taxi Driver?

What to Do When Involved in a Taxi Accident

In Brooklyn, taxis are everywhere, and their prevalence increases the likelihood of being in an accident with one. If you are driving and collide with a taxi, are involved in an accident while riding in a taxi, or are hit by a taxi while on a motorcycle, crossing the street, or riding a bike, you may be unsure of the appropriate next steps.

Regardless of whether you, the taxi driver, or another driver was at fault, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention and tend to any injuries you sustained during the accident. If seeking medical attention requires you to leave the scene, be sure to take pictures of the damage and talk to any witnesses before leaving, if possible. Without pictures of the accident, it may be very difficult for an accident reconstruction expert to assess the crash and establish fault, therefore making it more challenging to establish liability for your injuries. Also be sure to obtain the police report regarding your accident.

Make a point to gather the taxi driver’s company and personal auto insurance information as well, along with the insurance information of any other parties involved. This will be key to ensuring you are appropriately compensated for medical bills and other damages associated with your injury. If the total amount of damages exceeds the amount covered by a taxi driver or other driver’s auto insurance (which can happen in accidents involving multiple vehicles), you may have to sue the driver in order to recover the amount you need to cover the cost of your injuries.
