    As a rule of thumb, taxi drivers are usually pretty good behind the wheel, and so they should be; what with spending every working day driving passengers about the place. If the old adage that practice makes perfect is true, a taxi driver who has spent a good few years on the road must surely be the master of his trade. It doesn’t matter where you drive, if you’re making your way through the same streets day in-day out, you should have a pretty good idea of what you’re doing after you’ve been in the job for a while.

    Unfortunately, as with all professions, you will find the odd bad apple who likes to cut corners or perhaps not turn up to work in a fit state to drive in the world of cab drivers. There are also firms who like to keep their drivers out on the road for an unsafe number of hours and not keep their vehicles in a roadworthy condition.

    Although there are laws to prevent this sort of thing, there will also be a few shabby outfits that slip through the net. If you’re hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault while travelling in a taxi, you may be able to sue the negligent cab driver or firm for compensation with the assistance of injury lawyers in Southport.

    As with all road users, taxi drivers can be prone to making silly mistakes, especially if they’re over-tired, under the influence of drugs or alcohol or driving a vehicle that is not roadworthy. If you get injured as the result of a cab you’re being chauffeured around in due to these or any other reason, you might be able to use the services of injury lawyers in Southport to win compensation.

    Your cab driver might have been engaging you in conversation, in the way that some cab drivers do and failed to see the driver in front apply her brakes to make an emergency stop, resulting in your taxi ploughing into the back of the braking vehicle. If you were to suffer any cuts or bruises, or perhaps even whiplash, you could have a case for compensation.

    Any payout you might receive could be reduced if you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of your accident. It is your responsibility to make sure you’re strapped in while travelling in a taxi, not the cab driver’s.
