New York Taxi Insurance Requirements
A good majority of the residents of New York rely on taxis for transportation. There are more than 13,000 yellow taxis in New York City alone. While rideshare companies are becoming more popular, taxis remain the most popular way to get around in New York.
New York taxis are required to carry a minimum insurance coverage that provides:
- $100,00 per person and up to $300,000 per accident for groups
- $200,000 personal injury protection (PIP)
- $10,000 for property damage
What this means is that, as an individual passenger that was injured in a taxi accident, you can claim a maximum of $100,000 for your damages. However, if you were traveling as a group, you would be eligible for up to $300,000.
The above requirement is for yellow taxicabs as well as car services that have been issued licenses to provide services in New York. However, there are other taxi services including unlicensed cabs and private cabs. These cabs are known as gypsy cabs. These cabs do not necessarily abide by the insurance requirements set out above. The drivers may carry minimum liability coverage. This provides only $25,000 coverage for individuals and $50,000 coverage for groups.
Whether you were injured in a yellow cab or a gypsy cab, the insurance coverage may not be adequate to cover your damages. An experienced Long Island taxi accident lawyer from The Harrison Group, P.C. can help you recover even more compensation. We will identify all parties that can be held liable for your accident and pursue compensation on your behalf. Our attorneys will fight for maximum compensation and ensure that you receive the financial support you need during this difficult period in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions about Taxi Accidents in Long Island
Wearing a seatbelt while riding in a taxi is important for your safety in case of an accident. Passengers that fail to wear seatbelts are more likely to suffer more severe injuries than they would have if they had worn a seatbelt. The insurance company may use this argument to deny your claim for compensation. However, New York is a comparative negligence state. This means that you can still receive compensation for your damages. However, your compensation will be reduced based on the proportion in which your actions contributed to causing your injuries.

What is Personal Injury?
If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.
Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.
It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

Types of Personal Injury
Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:
When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.
Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.
When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.
An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.
Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.
A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.
An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.
Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.
When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.
