Taxi drivers are professionals who are careful drivers, right? Not always so. In fact, spending their days and nights driving could mean that some taxi drivers are not as careful on the roads as they should be, and they may take risks, such as speeding or using their mobile phone at the wheel, which could lead to a collision.
If you’ve been involved in a car crash with a taxi, who is to blame for your accident? You’d expect the taxi driver to be driving safely, but it may be that they caused the accident by speeding and rushing to get their passenger to their destination as quickly as possible.
After a car crash with a taxi, you may need to spend time in hospital recovering from your injuries. Here are a few examples of the types of injury which could be sustained:
- Head injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bruises
- Facial injuries
- Crush injuries (such as cracked ribs or a punctured lung)
Your injuries could range from minor to severe, but either way, you could be entitled to claim compensation if the other driver was to blame for the accident.
A quick call to Accident Advice Helpline could help to establish who is to blame and get you on the road towards claiming the compensation you deserve.
We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and have been recommended by our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen.
Claiming compensation – next steps
Once you’re starting to feel better, you might want to think about making a personal injury claim and it’s a good idea to gather any receipts for expenses incurred as a result of your accident. This could include receipts for prescription medication or travel costs to attend medical and hospital appointments.
We’ll take these into account when we work out how much your settlement will be. You could find out right now how much compensation you could be entitled to, by taking the 30-second test on our website. It’s important to remember that you need to claim within three years of your accident, as this time limit applies to all personal injury claims.
