Most taxi drivers have to work long hours to make a living. While black cab drivers in London may be able to make a reasonable salary, minicab drivers in cities such as Sunderland are not so well paid. As such, it is not unusual for some to put in hours that would make most people wince. All well and good you may think. What’s wrong with people working hard to pull in a bit of extra cash?
You might not be of the same opinion if you were to be injured in an accident that was not your fault that was caused by an exhausted taxi driver who had been burning the candle at both ends. In fact, you might well be minded to consider whether or not you might be in a position to seek a Sunderland no win no fee* compensation pay-out.
