Taxi Accident Compensation

Taxi accidents are an unfortunately common occurrence on our busy roads today, particularly in built up areas where the traffic is heaviest.

You may have been involved in an accident where you have been the passenger in a taxi vehicle. Your taxi driver has a duty of care for your safety to travel safely to your chosen location. If your driver has neglected his/her duty of care and the accident is as a result of negligence on his/her part, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.

If an incident has taken place, you must inform the taxi driver immediately. If you have been injured in the accident, make sure an ambulance is requested if required.

Sometimes there can be confusion as the taxi driver may not always report the accident to the taxi office immediately.

  • We would suggest, therefore, that you report the incident to the taxi office ASAP and also record the person's number you speak to on the phone.
  • You should make a note of the vehicle registration number, the taxi driver's name and taxi number.
  • Note the taxi firm's name, address and telephone number.

These bits of information will greatly assist your solicitor when it comes to gathering evidence together for your claim. In order for your case to stand the best possible chance in court, as much information is needed as you can supply, as this should lead to a charge of negligence of duty of care on behalf of the taxi firm.

If you have been involved in a taxi accident and sustained a personal injury, contact us today to see if we can assist you in making a claim. We will offer you help and guidance through every step of your claim and our friendly team is here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Our panel of solicitors will assess your case on its own merits and give you advice, and once the right solicitor is chosen for you, he/she will work hard to gain you the best possible outcome to your personal injury case.
