Taxi passenger claims are simply accidents occurring whilst you may have been a passenger in a taxi or uber
There’s no doubt; taxis are an important source of transportation for many. Especially when you’re running late or avoiding the danger of drink and driving. This can mean, that whilst you are riding a taxi, you can potentially be involved in a road traffic accident at any point in time.
Being in a taxi with an experienced taxi driver, doesn’t mean the risk of being involved in a road traffic accident is any less. A Road Traffic Accident can happen anytime, anywhere. This can result in leaving you as a passenger seriously injured. Injuries sustained as a result of an accident entitle the injured party to make a claim for injury compensation and claim for injuries that resulted from that accident. In order to make a claim for compensation you require a Personal Injury Solicitor to start the claim for you
If you were a passenger in a taxi and were involved in a road traffic accident, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your personal injury.
If you are interested in making an injury compensation claim, our experienced team members will be happy to help and guide you through from start to finish. With the help of our specialist accident lawyers we can assist you with the claims process.
Firstly, you will need to record all the details about the cab driver, the company and the car. It will also help your claim if you are able to obtain information of the others who were involved in the accident including any witnesses who may have witnessed the accident.
Secondly, if possible, take photos of the scene of the accident including pictures of all vehicles involved in the road traffic accident.
If you have been injured as a result of the accident, you should also seek some medical attention. Your injuries may seem mild at first, but with common road traffic accident injuries such as whiplash, they can come on a couple days following the accident.
This mainly depends on the accident itself and how it happened. Ultimately, it comes down to who was at fault for the accident.
If the driver was at fault for the accident, you will be claiming against the taxi driver’s insurance company or the taxi company insurance provider. However, if the accident was caused by another driver, you will be claiming from that person.
So, if you were a taxi passenger and were involved in a car accident, you are the victim and you are entitled to make a compensation claim.
