Auto Accident

Our client was a resident of New York City and visiting Washington, DC for a conference. She was riding in a taxicab when the taxi driver ran a red light and struck a vehicle owned and operated by the U.S. Park Police. Our client suffered serious injuries, including several fractures and face and scalp lacerations. The taxicab driver initially offered to settle the case for his automobile insurance policy limits of $20,000.00. The cab company denied liability, claiming that under DC law, it was not responsible for the driver’s negligence because he was an independent contractor. Nevertheless, we filed suit against both the taxi driver and the taxi cab company and were able to obtain a settlement of $100,000.00 without having our client return from New York for a trial, which she wanted to avoid.
