Have you been injured in a taxi cab accident? No matter where in the UK you were at the time of your accident, did you know that you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim? Every time you take a cab, you’re trusting the driver to take you from A to B safely – and for the most part taxi drivers are professionals who take their work (and the safety of their passengers) very seriously. So when things go wrong and you are injured in an accident in a taxi, what can you do? You can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, to see if you could make a 100% no win, no fee* claim for personal injury compensation.
Injuries sustained in a taxi accident
A taxi cab accident has the potential to cause serious injuries, depending on how fast the cab is driving and the circumstances of your accident. But don’t jump to conclusions – it may be the taxi driver themselves who is at fault or it could be another driver who has caused your accident, if your vehicle is involved in a collision. You could escape with minor injuries such as whiplash, cuts and bruises, or sustain more serious injuries such as a brain injury, if you hit your head in the collision.
This type of injury can change your whole life, affecting your motor skills, mood and behaviour. Your accident will have an impact on your family too – you might be unable to return to work to earn a living and you may even need specialist care if you are unable to look after yourself.
