More details to this question:
Accident happened on March 7, 2017 in front of 558 19st Brooklyn, NY 11218. Mercedes (Geico Driver) hit directly and totaled my car. Filed claim to Geico. Adjuster declared a total loss but my claim rejected with reason it was not their driver's fault. Then filed claim to Green Taxi driver (Hereford Ins) and they are not listening. Almost 3 months are passed. As per police report, Green taxi driver caused accident and Mercedes driver lost control and hit my car as well as other 3 cars.

Sue both Geico and Hereford and let them sort it out in court. If the damage is $5000 or less it's small claims court, otherwise sue them in civil court (if it's in NYC) or the local district court where you are located.

Insurance
Insurance enables people and companies to reduce the risk of suffering a catastrophic financial loss. Insurance attorneys offer a variety of services to both individuals and small businesses. For example, paying a small health insurance premium protects you in the event you are in an accident or diagnosed with a health condition that requires expensive treatment. Individual consumers may commonly purchase health insurance, automobile insurance, homeowner's insurance and/or renter's insurance. Businesses need a variety of policies to protect both their property and the company in the event of a lawsuit. Your insurance lawyer can review your existing policies and advise you on additional policies or coverage that may be necessary to protect you or your company from potential risks. Insurance law firms can also help you challenge insurance claims that have been denied in "bad faith," or in violation of the terms and conditions of the policy. And insurance lawyers can represent you if you are sued for something that is covered by an existing insurance policy.
