Taxi Drivers & Negligence

We trust that taxi drivers are experienced, knowledgeable, and cautious drivers when we step into a taxi cab—and the truth is that many of them are. However, this is not always the case, and dense, urban areas like New York City provide ample opportunity for reckless or negligent drivers to inflict serious harm on others.

Injuries are caused by taxi drivers who negligently:

  • Fail to yield to crossing pedestrians
  • Driving recklessly and speeding over the limits
  • Are under the influence alcohol and illegal drugs
  • Drive through red lights and stop signs

If you believe that any of these actions contributed to your taxi pedestrian accident, our firm can help you. For more than 50 years, our lawyers have fought beside clients who have been injured and wronged and, over that time, have recovered millions of dollars in relief on their behalf.
