Taxi Accident Claims
UK taxi drivers and taxi companies have a duty of care to ensure their passengers are transported safely. However an accident on the road can occur at anytime, and despite the safe reputation of taxi drivers, anyone can be on the wrong end of a reckless driver.

Making a Taxi Accident Claim
In order for your case to be successful you will need to prove someone was at fault for the accident as well as recording the personal injuries you suffered as a result.
After the accident your case will be greatly benefited if you can provide useful information. If possible after the incident remember to:
- Make a note of the names and contacts of any witnesses
- Take photos of your injury and the scene of the accident
- Report the matter to the police
- Inform medical staff that your injuries were sustained in a taxi accident
- Report the matter to the taxi firm in writing
- Wearing a Seatbelt
It is required by law for passengers to wear a seatbelt in the back of a taxi. However if you have been injured in a crash and were not selling a seat belt, it is often possible to claim damages. Keep in mind the figure you are awarded may be reduced due to the fact that your own actions contributed to your injuries.
What Is The Compensation For?
An accident on the road can affect people in many ways and in some cases can even be life changing. The compensation offered to victims helps rebuild your life and move on, often covering:
- Medical costs
- Loss of earnings
- Long-term care
- Pain and suffering
