What should I do if I was injured whilst riding in a Taxi?

Taxi drivers are some of the most experienced drivers around, but even so, accidents can and unfortunately do happen. If an accident happens when you are in the taxi, and you are injured as a result, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim If you want to pursue a claim then there are certain actions you can take immediately to help increase your claim, these include:

  • Take a note of all the details pertaining to the taxi, the driver and the taxi company
  • Get contact information from everyone involved in the accident, as well as any independent witnesses
  • Take photographs of the scene of the accident
  • Seek medical attention - if you have sustained injuries then they need to be treated. Some injuries related to road traffic accidents, such as whiplash, can take a while to develop. Also, your subsequent medical report will help form the basis of your compensation claim
  • Submit your claim - we have a full guide on how to make a personal injury claim

Who can I claim compensation from in a taxi claim?

Like all claims for compensation, the claim will be made against the individual or individuals who are found to be negligent. In the case of road traffic accidents, negligence is apportioned to the driver who is deemed to have been at fault for the incident. In some cases, more than one driver is judged to be liable for the incident - for example on a 75/25 basis - so in cases of split liability, your compensation claim will be made against both drivers. There are some instances where the cause of the accident was not a driver, but dangerous or poorly maintained roads. In that case, the local authority that is tasked with maintaining the roads could be held liable and your claim will be made against them.
