If you’ve been injured in a road accident that was not your fault, there is every chance you will be able to make a claim for compensation for any injuries you have received.
Remember, if you are injured in a taxi, you have just as much right to claim for compensation in the eyes of the law.
Accidents happen on the roads every day, regardless of the vehicle you are in and who is driving. It’s no different if you are injured in a taxi. As a passenger, the taxi company is responsible for your well-being while you are in that vehicle and you will also be covered by their insurance policy.
How do I make a claim if I’ve been injured in a taxi?
If you have been injured in a road accident you are entitled to make a claim and taxis are no exception. Firstly, in order to strengthen any case that you may have, it’s advisable to piece together any information you can from the accident. This can then be used by the solicitor representing you to highlight the fact that the accident occurred through no fault of your own.
Try and note down the following details:
- The time of the accident
- Where it happened
- The registration number of the taxi
- The make of the car
- The model
- Include any pictures you may have taken of the scene and the surrounding roads
