Often times when a passenger is injured in a Taxi, Uber or Lyft crash he/she isn’t clear on what their next steps should be or what their rights are. We have successfully represented victims injured in crashes, including those in livery vehicles. Our client Christopher shared his experience following a taxi crash in NYC:
“I was a passenger in a taxi cab that lost control and was hit by another taxi in Williamsburg, NYC. Since I was a passenger in the car accident I thought I had an open and shut case but I was wrong. The insurance companies refused to treat me fairly and low balled the offer. I am so glad I called Jacoby & Meyers right away because they helped me out with everything. They had to start a lawsuit in Brooklyn. The insurance companies refused to settle so we had a trial and my trial lawyer Sharon Scanlan was great. The dedication that she put into my case was outstanding. I was so prepared and she really helped me tell my story the best way possible. My case manager Judy Gentile was great as well. She kept me up to date on what was happening with my case, it made things so convenient for me. Eventually, after about a week of trial the insurance company almost tripled their offer and we settled for a fair amount. I was very satisfied with the outcome. I definitely recommend the injury lawyers at Jacoby & Meyers for anyone in a car crash in New York City.” -Christopher C.
