How can Taxi Accidents arise?
As with any road traffic accident, there are many ways that a taxi accident can arise. It could be that the taxi driver is to blame for the accident, or it may be the fault of another road user. As a passenger in the taxi, you have no insurance of your own to claim against, so your claim will be covered by the insurance of whichever driver is deemed to be at fault for the accident.
If the driver of your taxi was at fault, then your claim will be against them or the company they were driving for. If however another road user was at fault, your claim would be against them. Most claims are against one of the drivers involved in the accident (or their employers). Howver, in very rare circumstances it is sometimes necessary to claim against another party such as a local authority – for example if there was evidence that the poor condition of a road caused the accident.
As with any road traffic accident, proving liability can be difficult. However, as a passenger the accident almost certainly won’t be your fault, so we recommend that you seek legal advice promptly, rather than wait until liability has been agreed.
What type of injuries can I claim for?
We can advise on any injury, ranging from minor ones right through to catastrophic, life-changing injuries. We can also advise on fatal injuries if you have suffered the loss of a loved one or family member due to a taxi accident.
How much compensation might I receive?
The amount of compensation you receive for your injuries very much depends on your specific circumstances. That’s why we recommend that you get in touch with us promptly so that we can discuss the specifics of your accident in more detail.
You may be able to claim for the following if they are a direct result of your injuries:
- Compensation for distress and upheaval
- Loss of earnings and financial losses incurred
- Medical costs, prescription fees, care and rehabilitation costs
- Damage to your property
- Travel expenses incurred as a result of the incident
Do I have a valid claim for compensation?
If you can answer yes to all three of the following questions, we recommend that you contact us to discuss your circumstances further:
- Was the incident within the last three years?
- Was someone else to blame for the incident?
- Were you injured as a result of the incident?
Answering ‘yes’ to all three doesn’t mean that a successful claim is certain. However, these questions are key to the claims process. Answering yes to all three does indicate that you have a greater chance of being entitled to claims. Getting prompt, specialist legal advice could be beneficial.
Because of the three-year time limit, it’s important that you contact us promptly so that we can start the process for you.
