Taxi Accident Claims
What Is A Taxi Accident Claim?
Insurance companies have a strong interest in offering the smallest possible payments they can to compensate you for injuries you have sustained in a taxi accident that wasn’t your fault. They will often offer amounts far below that which you are entitled to. Working with our team of taxi accident claims specialists gives you the confidence to know that you are getting a fair amount of compensation for your injuries and ensures that you get the money you need to help you recover.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive For My Taxi Accident?
The amount of compensation received for different types of injuries varies hugely and is completely dependent on your specific taxi accident. This makes it incredibly difficult to answer the question of how much compensation you are likely to receive. This is why we recommend that you call us and discuss your case as soon as possible. There are some general principles behind the amount of compensation you receive, however.
Compensation claim amounts for all personal injuries (including taxi accidents) are divided into two main parts. The first part of the claim is based on the amount of pain and suffering you have experienced. Because this is such a subjective assessment, there are guidelines put forward by the national governing body (the Judicial College). These give a range of amounts that are usually paid out following each specific injury. The ranges can be very wide, however. This is because they are designed to ensure that the exact nature of your injury can be taken into account. Unfortunately, this can make it very difficult for anyone without experience to know where in that range their injury is likely to fall. Our highly trained personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience in making taxi accident claims and are able to give you an accurate assessment of where in the range your injury is likely to fall.
The second aspect to be considered when deciding a compensation claim is any costs or financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your taxi accident. The aim of financial compensation following your taxi accident is to get you back as close as possible to where your life would have been had your taxi accident not happened. This could involve compensating you for loss of earnings if you have to take time off work to recover from your taxi accident, or even paying a larger sum for the loss of potential future earnings if you are unable to return to your former career as a result of your injuries. You may also need to pay for additional transportation costs, fees for additional medical treatment not easily available on the NHS or making modifications to your home in severe cases if that is needed to help you to continue to live independently.
It can be difficult to be sure that you are claiming everything that you are entitled to. Our expert taxi accident claims solicitors have years of experience making sure that you are claiming for everything you deserve, giving you the best possible compensation claim to help you get your life back on track following your taxi accident.
How Long Will It Take To Receive My Compensation As A Result Of My Taxi Accident Claim?
Taxi accident compensation claims can differ dramatically in terms of how long they take to resolve. Despite this, we understand that you need your case resolved as quickly as possible. Resolving your case allows you to move on from your taxi accident, with the financial support you need behind you.
For cases that can be resolved quickly, they are likely to take only a few weeks or months. These cases tend to be for more minor injuries and where the other person accepts liability easily. When smaller sums of money are involved, the other party is likely to want to resolve the case simply and quickly, without arguing in great detail over each offer of compensation. It is in their interest to resolve the case as quickly as possible to reduce their costs, as well as your stress.
More complicated cases include those where the other person does not accept that they were liable for what happened to you, or if multiple people were all partially to blame. In these situations, your case may take far longer to be resolved and for you to get the compensation you need. If your case has to go to court, it will also take much longer to be completed.
What If I Am Worried About How To Afford My Taxi Accident Compensation Claim?
We offer our services on a no win no fee basis to almost all of our clients, as we don’t believe that anyone should have to put themselves at financial risk or make large, up-front payments in order to access the legal they need to get the compensation they deserve.
A no win no fee agreement means that we are able to act as your solicitors without you having to pay any fees until you receive compensation. As the name suggests, if we are not able to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t have to pay anything. This takes the risk out of making a taxi accident claim and ensures that justice is available to everyone. With a no win no fee agreement, our fees are set as a percentage of your compensation payment, meaning that you always know exactly how much you will receive before accepting an offer of a compensation settlement, and also ensuring that you will always receive the lion’s share of the payment.
In a few situations, we are unable to work on a no win no fee basis. If you are unlucky enough to fall into this rare category, we will explain this straight away, and we will discuss the range of alternative funding options open to you to make sure that you can still get the legal help you need at a price that you can afford.
If you are thinking of making a taxi accident compensation claim, don’t delay. Call now or claim online today.
Will I Still Have To Pay Costs For My Taxi Accident If I Lose My Claim?
The important thing about making a no win no fee compensation claim for your taxi accident is that it must never put you more at risk. We will never ask you for any money if we are unable to win you the compensation you deserve. This guarantee ensures that you are able to seek justice for your accident or injury without worrying about how you will pay for it if we lose. You will never be left out of pocket as a result of trying to get the compensation you are entitled to.
How Long Do I Have To Make A Taxi Accident Claim?
There is a deadline of two years to make a persona injury compensation claim. This is almost always measured from the date at which your accident or injury took place, but in some exceptional cases it can be from the date at which you realized that you had sustained an injury, if this was later. In general, it is better not to get too close to the deadline, as this leaves reduced time to negotiate. The best plan is to contact our personal injury solicitors as soon as possible.
Sometimes it is worth delaying starting your compensation claim a little while. This is to allow the full extent of your injuries to become clear, as some injuries are not immediately apparent or they may take longer to heal than expected. You should still get expert legal advice from our personal injury specialists as soon as possible, however, as this gives us the maximum time to put together the best possible case for you.
The Process Of Making A Taxi Accident Compensation Claim
Making a taxi accident personal injury compensation claim is simple.
Most people who have suffered an accident or injury will want to take legal advice before starting their personal injury compensation claim, and we believe that this is a very good idea. We are available 24/7 to ensure that you can access the help you need whenever suits you. You can call us or claim online to make sure that you get the support and assistance you need for your taxi accident claim.
As your personal injury claims solicitors, we will send a letter to the person to blame for your taxi accident, explaining that you are making a personal injury compensation claim and that you believe that they were to blame. We will give them a deadline by which they must either accept liability (this means accepting that they were to blame) or tell us why they were not to blame.
If they refuse to accept liability, we will show them evidence to support your claim. This can include any evidence you have gathered, such as the contact details of witnesses or photographs and videos of the location in which your accident occurred, as well as evidence we collect ourselves. It is very difficult for employers to claim that they were not responsible for accidents that took place at work.
Once the other party has accepted that they are liable and that they will need to pay compensation following your accident, we then need to begin negotiations to decide the exact amount of compensation that is fair. Although we conduct the negotiations on your behalf, you are always in control. We will inform you of every single offer that is made, even if we recommend that you reject it. We will give you our honest, unbiased advice, based on our years of experience, as to whether you should accept or reject any specific offer, but we will always support your decision. If you reject an offer, we will explain to the other side why, and the reasons that we believe you deserve a higher amount.
Almost all of our cases are resolved without needing to go to court, as the other person accepts liability and we find a compensation amount that both sides think is fair. In a very few cases, however, it might be necessary to ask a judge to decide, if we are unable to form an agreement.

I Suffered A Taxi Accident. Can I Claim Compensation?
It can be difficult to know whether you are entitled to make a taxi accident compensation claim. There are few conditions that must be met for you to make a compensation claim.
The first and most basic requirement for you to make a taxi accident compensation claim is that you must have suffered a taxi accident. You are not able to make a claim for a near miss, where you narrowly avoided a taxi accident. You are also only able to claim if were in some way damaged or harmed as a result of what happened. If you were very lucky and avoided all injury, you are not able to make a compensation claim. Your injuries can be mental as well as physical, but you can only claim for what you actually experienced.
It is also vital that there is someone who is at fault in your taxi accident. In order to make a taxi accident compensation claim, you must claim against someone, and this person or organisation must have had some form of responsibility towards you. If your accident or injury took place at work, your employer will almost certainly be in this position, as they have a statutory duty of care, meaning that they have a legal requirement to think about your health and safety and to take all appropriate measures to keep you safe.
The person or organisation that you are claiming against must also have been able to predict something along the lines of what happened to you. This does not mean that you have to prove that they did anticipate it, but a reasonable person who was taking their role seriously in terms of health and safety should be able to foresee the danger.
Finally, you should think about whether the person responsible for your safety took any steps to look after your wellbeing. Even if they did put some measures in place, you are still able to make a compensation claim if these were not sufficient for the degree of risk or for the circumstances you found yourself in.
If you have been injured as the result of a taxi accident and there was someone else who could have helped to avoid or minimise your injuries, you are able to make a taxi accident compensation claim. If you are in this position, call us or claim online today.
What Can You Do In The Period Immediately After Your Taxi Accident?
The most important thing in the immediate aftermath of your taxi accident is to ensure that you are safe and that you have the medical attention that you need. This must always be your first priority. Once you have done this, however, you might want to think about taking a few simple steps to help with a taxi accident compensation claim, should you decide to make one.
One of the easiest and most important things that you can do following your taxi accident is to write down exactly what happened. This should include anything relevant in the lead up to your taxi accident, including anything that might have increased the risk of your taxi accident. Any details that you remember should be noted down, whether you think that they are relevant or not. This record means that you will have supporting evidence and helps to prevent you forgetting important details that might later be useful to support your compensation claim.
It can also be helpful to make sure that you have the names and contact details of any witnesses to your taxi accident. You are welcome to ask them to write down everything they remember, but we are also able to do this for you, as long as we know who they are and are able to contact them. Witnesses can provide strong support when you are demonstrating the causes of your taxi accident.
If you have access to photographs or videos of the place that your taxi accident took place, these pieces of visual evidence can also be very helpful. Please do make sure that you don’t put yourself at risk to obtain these though. Anything showing any features of the location or the situation that made your taxi accident more likely, or which increased the severity of your taxi accident, should be documented if you can.
Although these are some things that you can do following your taxi accident, to help support your taxi accident compensation claim, we are still fully able to help you even if you are not able to do any of these things. Our expert team of personal injury claims solicitors are specialists in making these kinds of claims, and we can arrange for the collection of any evidence needed to support your taxi accident claim.
