Taxi Accident Claim results in £4000 for passenger
Taxi Accident Claims
When we travel on public transport we are putting our safety in the hands of, what we hope is an experienced and professional driver. But even so, accidents can happen.
When using a taxi or private hire vehicle, the actions of those responsible for our safety are outside of our control. You can make a claim if you were a passenger in a taxi, and either the taxi driver or another road user was to blame.
About taxi passenger injury claims
If you were the victim of a taxi accident, you will be eligible to claim compensation. However, as there are many, varied sets of circumstances that can cause taxi passenger injury, the amount of compensation received will also vary, and depends on the level of injuries sustained, and the impact on the victim’s life. Taxi passengers who suffer the most serious injuries, such as broken bones, head injuries and spinal injuries, will therefore receive higher amounts of compensation than those who suffer minor injuries, such as whiplash or soft tissue injuries.
For an accurate estimate of the amount of compensation you may be likely to receive, and to discuss the details of your case with an expert, speak to one of our team today.
At Treadstone Law we were contacted by ‘Miss M’ who was travelling as a passenger in the back of a taxi, which was involved in a side on collision with another vehicle.
As a result of the accident ‘Miss M’ suffered a serious neck injury which has been ongoing and giving her pain for the past 14 months.
We took on her case, as a result of the accident, and are please to report that we have been able to effect an award for damages of £4,000 as compensation for her injury.
