Did a taxi driver cause your accident in Kingston upon Hull?
When you can’t travel by public transport and you aren’t able to drive yourself, using a taxi can provide the ideal alternative. Although using a taxi can be more costly than using public transport, there are a number of advantages.
Rather than having to wait for scheduled public transport services, you can simply call a taxi at a time that’s convenient for you. In addition to this, many people feel safer using a taxi service, particularly if they are planning to travel late at night. As many taxis are legally allowed to drive in bus lanes, you can also benefit from avoiding the traffic which can make your journey far quicker and easier.
Of course, taxis aren’t immune from all hazards on the road and it’s possible that you could be involved in a road traffic accident whilst travelling in a hired vehicle. If you’re hurt whilst travelling by taxi or you suffer an accident in Kingston upon Hull and your driver was at fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim against them.
Claiming personal injury compensation
If they are shown to be at fault, there’s a good chance that you could obtain compensation from them or their company. Of course, it is possible that you could be hurt or suffer an accident in Kingston upon Hull because of a taxi driver whilst in your own vehicle as well. If you’re involved in a collision caused by a taxi driver, you could still make a claim against them, as you would with any other driver.
Whilst many people do admit responsibility when they cause an accident in Kingston upon Hull, if the driver responsible doesn’t admit their liability straightaway, you may want to obtain as much evidence as possible. If, for example, you’re able to take a photograph of the aftermath of the incident, it could help to highlight who caused the accident. Similarly, if there are witnesses present who are willing to give their details, this could be helpful when it comes to making your claim.
