In June 2007, a woman took a bus from her native Boston to New York City so she could attend a business seminar. She hailed a cab in front of the Port Authority, loaded her luggage and climbed into the cab. Before she could sit down, the cab driver lurched the car away from the curb, then came to a shuddering halt, throwing the woman into the Plexiglas divider. The wild and erratic driving left the woman with two broken teeth and neck and back pain. The woman asked me to represent her and last week we settled the case with the taxi driver for $30,000.
There are certain aspects of this case which might interest you.
