A school bus and taxi cab were involved in a serious car accident on the Grand Central Parkway in Astoria, Queens early this morning. Injuries have been reported and the police are investigating.
Many car accidents in New York City involve taxi cabs. This is due to the fact there are many taxis on the streets of New York coupled with the ongoing issue of taxi drivers driving at excessive speeds.
When you are involved in a car accident with a New York City taxi, the insurance companies for the taxis are usually one of three or four companies. These companies do everything in their power to fight lawsuits involving their drivers. These companies also make it very difficult for passengers in taxis to receive adequate medical benefits called No-Fault benefits.
Many law firms in New York will not represent people injured by taxis. However, the attorneys at Morgan Levine do not turn their backs on people injured in taxi accidents.
