Injury lawyer in Saffron Walden


We all know the risks associated with driving a motor vehicle and usually feel much safer when we sit back as a passenger and take a coach, train or taxi.  That smooth, relaxing ride from Saffron Walden to a cosy little bar provides a welcome break from the responsibility of driving, but even with the safest form of transport, the risk element is still there.  A taxi is, after all, a motor vehicle dependent upon the safe driving of others. Reassuringly, figures from injury lawyers reveal that road traffic collisions involving taxis are seldom caused by the taxi driver and are often the result of someone else driving dangerously.  If the inevitable should happen and the passenger suffers an injury such as hypertension of the neck or whiplash, it is possible to submit a personal injury claim to the taxi driver or the person that caused the accident.

Injury lawyer in Saffron Walden – taking the legal route

If a taxi driver is involved in an accident caused by someone else, a personal injury lawyer will account for injuries, loss of earnings and the cost to repair or replace the taxi.

Injury lawyer in Saffron Walden –  when calling a taxi could lead to calling a personal injury lawyer

In the UK it is a legal requirement for passengers to wear a seat belt even if they are travelling in the back of a taxi.  If an accident should occur and it was evident that a seat belt was not secured, a personal injury lawyer may not be able to claim full compensation. Recompense may be reduced by up to 25% as a result of contributory negligence.  Having said that, taxi drivers in the United Kingdom do not break the law if they abstain from wearing a seat belt.

Injury lawyer in Saffron Walden – Weighing up the facts

If you should suffer a road traffic accident when riding as a passenger in a taxi, acquire as much information about the event as you can (depending on your injuries).  You will need the name of the taxi driver, the company and details of the taxi cab.  It would also help speed up a claim if you could provide your personal injury lawyer with the contact information of the driver responsible for the accident.  If you happen to have a mobile phone equipped with a built in camera, take as many pictures of the incident as possible and take contact details of any witnesses present at the time.

With mobile phone still at hand, you could give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0333 500 0993 to find out how to put wheels in motion for making a claim.
