Queens Taxicab Accident Lawyer

Taxicab Accidents

New York City taxicab drivers are required by law to carry liability insurance. They are also required to notify their insurer after injuring someone in a pedestrian knockdown or car crash. Nonetheless, the burden of filing a claim is often on the injured party. This can make it difficult to receive fair compensation, particularly if the driver claims that you are responsible for causing the accident.

At the Law Office of Schachter, P.C., we work with accident investigators to reconstruct what happened. We interview eye witnesses and gather evidence to expose fault on the part of the taxi driver. Whether you've been injured as a passenger in a cab, hit by a cab while driving or struck while crossing the street, personal injury attorney David B. Schachter will protect your interests and assert your rights.

Bus Accidents

The Law Office of Schachter, P.C., can also represent you in an accident case involving either a privately chartered bus or a Metro Transit bus. The latter is more complicated, involving filing a notice of claim within 90 days of the accident and monitoring the investigation done by the Transit Authority.

In either case, we consult with our own accident investigators who measure skid marks, analyze a bus's onboard black box data recorder and evaluate damages. We can request copies of a police report, ask for a driver's driving record and conduct interviews to identify inconsistencies between a driver's claims and eyewitness reports.
