Who Pays for Injuries Resulting from an Uber Accident?


The yellow taxis have become a symbol of New York City. It turns out, however, that more and more people are turning to rideshare companies to make their way around the boroughs.

Suing New York City for Wrongful Death

Q: What happens in the case of an accident involving a government-owned vehicle?

New York City Car accident attorneys have seen it all due to the nature of the many ways people navigate the city. In addition to accidents involving two cars, accidents may also involve trains, motorcycles, buses, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians.
