Taxi, limo, and other car services provide Bergen County residents with a wide variety of transportation options.

Our top-rated New Jersey taxi accident lawyers have successfully helped countless accident victims in New Jersey get fair compensation for their injuries. We are ready to put our skills to work in your case. To schedule your free case review, you can call us or fill out our online contact form anytime.
Most taxi and limo accident victims are especially frustrated by the fact that they did nothing to cause the accident—as passengers, it was completely out of their control. Fortunately, you do have legal rights. At The Epstein Law Firm, P.A., we fight to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions. With over 120 years of collective experience and a passion for justice, we know how to make the legal system work for our clients.
Taxi and limo drivers might take risks that you would not take with your own personal vehicle. When those risks result in injury to innocent passengers and bystanders, our talented lawyers are here to step in and use the legal process to get justice in the form of financial compensation.
Taxi and limo accidents are often caused by driver error, although any number of factors can come into play. While the common causes of taxi and limo accidents may be similar to typical car accidents, drivers of these vehicles often put in long hours behind the wheel. This only magnifies the likelihood that driver error will play a role in the accident.
Taxi and limo accidents are commonly caused by:
Taxi and limo drivers are subject to special licensing requirements. However, even though they are technically trained as professional drivers, their underlying motivation is different than typical drivers on the road—they are out to make money. They also spend much more time on the roads than a typical driver, meaning they are likely to be tired and distracted. Some may even eat meals behind the wheel.
All of these factors amount to driver negligence. At The Epstein Law Firm, P.A., our skilled accident lawyers know how to get the evidence needed to establish liability. Contact us today to learn more about our practice and how we can help.
While the common causes of taxi and limo accidents are similar to typical car crashes, establishing liability is often much different. The taxi or limo driver may not own the vehicle they are driving. In some cases, the driver will own the vehicle, which might be covered by a commercial insurance policy with terms that are much different than personal car insurance.
In these cases, either the driver or the driver’s employer (as vehicle owner) may be held financially responsible. At The Epstein Law Firm, P.A., our experienced limo accident attorneys in Rochelle Park, NJ will investigate to identify all potentially responsible parties and fight for maximum compensation.
Whether you were injured while riding as a passenger, in another vehicle or even as a pedestrian, our taxi and limo accident lawyers are here to fight for your right to full compensation. When someone else caused your accident and you were seriously injured, you may be entitled to compensation above and beyond what your own car insurance policy provides. In taxi and limo accident cases, passengers might not even own a vehicle.
Our New Jersey taxi accident lawyers will advocate for your right to full compensation for:
In some cases, where the defendant’s actions were intentional or especially shocking (such as a taxi or limo accident caused by a drunk driver), you may also be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are rare and designed only to punish the person or organization that caused the accident and injuries.

Yes. Seatbelts are always advisable, but in some types of limos, they are not even readily available. However, even if wearing a seatbelt might have reduced the severity of your injuries, failing to wear a seatbelt does not completely eliminate your right to compensation. Under New Jersey law, a compensation award may be reduced by the amount of “fault” assigned to the victim. In other words, if the evidence shows that your injuries would have been less serious with a seatbelt, and a seatbelt was readily available to use, your compensation award may be reduced.
Yes. In addition to calling 911 and seeking medical treatment, you should:
– Get the taxi or limo driver’s information, including license information and insurance details
– Take a picture of the vehicle license plate
– Photograph the accident scene in general
– Look around to see if any witnesses stopped and get their contact information
– Seek medical attention
– Call an experienced taxi and limo accident lawyer who can begin investigating your case immediately
