Taxi Accidents Are a Serious Problem in NYC; Let Manhattan Attorney Richard C. Bell Represent You
Taxi cabs are nearly synonymous with New York City, and you can’t walk down a block without seeing at least a few of them weaving in and out of traffic, tailgating other cars and almost grazing pedestrians and bicyclists at every corner. Taxis are not a new development in New York’s history; they have been a part of the city since 1897 and are now so ubiquitous that, by some estimates, they make up about 25% of the transportation in New York City. But the reckless driving of city taxi drivers is almost as famed as the taxis themselves and accidents involving these vehicles can cause serious injury to passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. If you have been injured in a taxi accident, you need the services of an experienced and tough New York City personal injury attorney.

Taxi Accidents Can Cause Severe Injuries
Recent local news here in New York City has been filled with tragic accidents involving out of control taxis jumping curbs and seriously injuring pedestrians and passengers. Those involved in a taxi accident are more likely to suffer a serious injury than regular automobile passengers, partly attributed to the fact that taxi riders often do not wear seatbelts, partly because of the proximity of passengers to partitions put in place to protect drivers from passengers and partly due to the congested streets that allow taxis to come in close range of pedestrians and bicyclists at almost every corner. Other causes of taxi accidents include:
- Driver negligence or recklessness
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Improper training for taxi drivers
No matter the cause of your accident, you may have been left with severe injuries such as amputations, broken bones and permanent head trauma, among others. If you have sustained serious injuries in a taxi accident, you are likely entitled to financial compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Richard C. Bell will work tirelessly to get you the maximum compensation that you may deserve.*
