Have you been hurt whilst in a taxi?
Although many people do drive their own vehicles in order to get around, sometimes relying on a taxi or minicab can seem easier. If you live or work in a heavily populated area, such as Central London, relying on taxis for short journeys can be easier than using your own vehicle. One of the main advantages of using taxis in a city environment is that you don’t have to find somewhere to park your car or pay costly car parking charges.
Another reason many people use cabs or taxis is when they go out for the evening. If they plan to drink alcohol, even one or two glasses can prevent them from driving safely. Many people prefer to use taxis or cabs after a night out so that they can return home safely.
However, accidents and injuries can occur on the roads and being in a taxi won’t necessarily prevent you from being injured. If you are hurt whilst travelling in a taxi it is likely to be either the fault of the taxi driver or the fault of another driver.
If your taxi driver was responsible for the incident that caused your injuries, they could be liable and they may have to pay compensation if you make a claim with an experienced solicitor in Ilkeston or a personal injury law firm.
Alternatively, if another driver caused the incident, you may be able to make a claim against them with help from a solicitor in Ilkeston.
