Most of us have taken a taxi to get us from A to B at one time or another. You might do this in a black cab or a mini-cab, depending on where you live and which services are available. The majority of taxi drivers provide an excellent service but like any other mode of transport accidents do have the potential to occur, although fortunately they are rare.
We all know road accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Even if the taxi in which you are travelling is involved in an accident, it may not be the fault of the driver. If it is their fault you have to be able to prove it in a court of law. A negligent taxi driver can cause injury to their passengers, so it is vital that you find out more if you have been in this situation. This holds true regardless of whether the injuries you suffer are minor or of a more severe nature. You don’t get into a taxi assuming you’re going to get injured through a negligent taxi driver. You climb in thinking they will get you safely from your starting point to your destination, as we all do.
Who can you ask for advice if you are injured in a taxi?
If you have been hurt it can be difficult at first to know what you should do. Should you seek treatment? Should you call a lawyer? Treatment should always be your first option if required. Getting photographic evidence of your injuries is also important as it may help to support your compensation claim against the negligent taxi driver. To make sure you can proceed along the right lines, get in touch with a professional injury compensation lawyer too. There is a limit of three years on claims such as these, so you can claim for an accident that was not particularly recent.
