How many times have you been in a taxi that was speeding or one which braked suddenly at traffic lights? Even though this has happened to most of us at some point or another, being involved in an accident in a taxi probably hasn’t ever crossed your mind. But did you know that if you’re injured whilst travelling in a taxi you could be eligible to claim taxi accidents compensation? You could be surprised at the amount of compensation you’re entitled to, even if you have suffered minor injuries in a taxi accident.
Accident Advice Helpline can offer you confidential advice that could help you decided whether or not to go ahead with a personal injury claim, provided you call us within three years of your accident happening.
Injured by a dangerous driver
If you feel your accident was caused by the taxi driver, claiming taxi accidents compensation could be on the cards. But what sort of injuries could be sustained in an accident in a taxi? Well, if the driver is speeding and collides with another vehicle, you could suffer whiplash, cuts and bruises, broken bones or a back injury – even a serious head injury, if it’s a high-speed collision. Of course, there’s always the case where another dangerous driver collides with your taxi, in which case the other driver could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you compensation. Even accidents travelling at low speeds or whilst the vehicle is stationary could result in injuries like whiplash, which is painful and can mean taking time off work to recover.
