This is Part 18 in our NYC personal injury video series: “What should I do if I’m in an accident involving a taxi?”
If you were in an accident with a cab, if you’re getting out of a cab, getting into a cab, no fault still applies because that involves a motor vehicle. So you’re going to get your medicals paid for and you’re going to also be able to bring a lawsuit under that serious injury threshold that I discussed before if you have a serious injury. Also, you should get the medallion number of the cab because often times, these guys will deny there was an accident. So, it’s important to get whatever information you can, medallion license plate. If they leave the scene of the accident, particularly important to get a license plate number.
