    Dangers of electronic doors on taxis


    Taxis can be very convenient, allowing us to get around without having to deal with the stress and strain associated with public transport and enabling us to get right to where we need to go right from our front doors. However, taxis are not without their hazards, and if you have been in an accident involving a taxi that wasn’t your fault, we may well be able to assist you and help you get compensation. Many people have had their fingers caught in electronic doors on taxis. If the doors don’t open when they need to and there has been an accident such as a collision, you may not be able to escape to safety.

    Have you been hurt by electronic doors on taxis?

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help if you have been hurt by electronic doors on taxis. If you have had an accident and believe it was the fault of the firm or driver in question, we can help you get compensation. Anything paid out to you will normally come from insurance, so you won’t be putting the driver or the company out of business by claiming. We work on a no-win, no-fee basis and you don’t need to give us any money to start a claim with us.

    Injuries you might sustain because of electronic doors, other parts of the vehicle or collisions in taxis can include broken bones, whiplash, head injuries, spinal, internal and neck injuries, bruising, strains and sprains, electric shocks and more. Taxi-related accidents can put you out of action for some time and you could lose a considerable amount of money after being forced to take time away from work recuperating. We have vast experience in dealing with traffic-based claims and have helped people from all walks of life to get compensation after being in accidents that were not their fault.

    Can you claim?

    Most claimants never have to attend court or undergo more than one additional medical assessment. We will work with you to gather together as much evidence related to your claim as we need. This evidence can include medical reports, CCTV footage, photographs of your injuries and more. The incident must have occurred in the last three years, though you will have until you’re 21 if you were a child at the time. Call 0800 689 0500 (landline) or 0333 500 0993 (mobile) to learn more.
