Were You Injured In A New York City Taxi Cab Accident?
According to Schaller Consulting, on average New York sees approximately 4,000 accidents involving taxi cabs each year. As taxi’s account for 25% of Manhattan’s traffic population, a large portion of these accidents take place within the city. In comparison to accidents involving other vehicles, cab passengers are at a higher risk of sustaining injuries for two primary reasons. First, passengers traveling in a taxi often neglect to wear their seat belts. Second, it seems that the partition separating the front and back seat increases the likelihood of sustained injury, even for those wearing their seat belts, given the hard stop upon impact.
The personal injury lawyers at Banville Law are dedicated to representing the rights of accident victims throughout NYC’s five boroughs. We leverage an extensive knowledge of New York’s regulations, a wide range of resources, and proven trial experience in each case. Whenever possible, we seek the maximum compensation for our clients, reimbursement that covers medical expenses and lost wages, but also extends to “non-economic damages,” like emotional hardship, suffering, and loss in enjoyment of life.

Why Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
The insurance system is a business, and auto insurance companies have only one mission: to maximize profit, while minimizing expenses. And while most accident victims seek the funds they need through traditional insurance companies, it’s not always the best option.
In many cases, insurance adjusters will actively downplay the appearance of a victim’s injuries, hoping to make quick, low settlement offers, rather than providing victims the support they truly require.
