If you operate a taxi for a company notify them of the accident. If it is your own company put your own carrier on notice of he accident. This is the reason people and companies have insurance. Can't say if you will be sued or not but you could be. If you don't let your insurance carrier know they may try and deny coverage if you do get sued.
I am a Las Vegas personal injury trial attorney. The majority of my cases are referred to me from other attorneys that know I can take care of my clients all the way through a trial. In Vegas we have a jury trials, bench trials which are ones that do not have a jury but only a judge.

Most personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis. Meaning that they do not get paid unless they recover money. You will rarely, if ever, have to come out of pocket for anything. Consult with your local personal injury attorneys.

However, it is widely known that unless you retain a personal injury attorney that is competent in handling cases such as yours the insurance companies will likely not provide you with a settlement as favorable as they otherwise would. I suggest that you immediately contact a personal injury attorney in your city as soon as possible to ensure that you are not taken advantage of by...
Yes. Although personal injury settlements/awards are not taxable unless they contain compensation for lost wages they can be attached for other reasons such as past due child support. Please contact a local attorney if you have not already done so. My firm in Las Vegas handles personal injury claims such as yours and would be happy to speak with you.
You need an attorney. The insurance companies are known to not try and help victims such as you that were injured due to the negligence of their insureds. Even when they offer to settle with you it is almost always well below what you would receive if you had an attorney. It is extremely important that you go to a doctor and follow all his instructions, not miss appointments and not give any statements to anyone other than your doctors or attorneys.
I would really need to see your policy to accurately tell you. Just call your insurance agent and have him explain your coverage. Also, make sure the insurance company is aware of the accident so they can defend you and help you with your claim and any claim that may be made against you.
