Many of us rely on taxis regularly, to get home from a night out, or even to take us home or to a friend’s house after a busy day or night of shopping, eating and drinking. If you live in a more rural area, you may even take regular taxis to work or on the weekends. The last thing on anybody’s mind when travelling by taxi is being injured in a taxi accident. Taxi drivers are professionals, and so we trust them to take us to our destination safely and speedily – although this doesn’t always happen.
If you have been injured in an accident whilst travelling in a cab, you might find you could claim personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline – it all depends what has happened.
