Advocates for Victims of Unsafe Driving Services—New York Limo Accident Lawyer
When you incur the high cost of a limousine service, you have a right to expect the luxury vehicles to be well-maintained and the drivers to be professional and adequately trained.
However, New York has been the site of serious limousine accidents, including a fatal limousine crash in October 2018 that was the deadliest transportation accident in the country in 10 years. Twenty people died when a limo bus in Schoharie New York ran through an intersection and crashed into a parked vehicle killing 2 more bystanders.
At Oliveri and Schwartz, we have seen countless cases over the years involving limo drivers, buses, cars etc that involved numerous records of safety violations, including repeated use of underage drivers with poor driving records, and poorly maintained vehicles.
Patrons of professional driving services assume that they will receive more than luxury, transportation, and entertainment since limousine services should provide a high degree of vehicle safety.
Unfortunately, inattentive or careless motorists and chauffeurs can cause severe limo collisions when they fail to yield, run red lights and stop signs, compose a text while driving, and engage in other unsafe driving practices.
Because of the large weight and length of a limousine, special driving skills and proper training is essential for safe operation. When limos are involved in a collision, the disparity in weight between a small passenger car and a limousine can have devastating consequences for occupants of the smaller vehicle. However, there have been a number of high profile limousine accidents in recent years in which passengers in the limos suffered serious injury or death.
