Injured in a taxi Claim injury compensation today

An injury compensation settlement is not just for the stress and discomfort you suffered at the time.

It is also intended to help you financially with treatment costs and also cover any current or future loss of income that may occur if you are unable to work.

Taxi passengers have the same legal rights as passengers injured in any road traffic accident.

If it is their fault, your taxi driver should adequate insurance cover their passengers in this situation.

If the accident was the fault of another driver, then the solicitors we work with can pursue a personal injury claim from their insurers instead.

Is a personal injury claim worth the effort?

Actually it’s not as difficult as you may think.

We make the whole process as easy possible for you. We manage the paperwork for you and can even visit your home to help you complete any documents that may be required.

The vast majority of personal injury claims are settled ‘out-of-court’ based on the outcomes of previous court decisions and the settlement amounts are agreed upon between yourself, your appointed solicitor and the solicitors of the third party.

How much compensation do I get?

Injury compensation settlements depend on your own particular situation, so this is almost impossible to determine without speaking to one of the solicitors we work with.

The factors they consider when estimating your compensation settlement include: -

  • The type of injury and its severity

  • The stress and discomfort you suffered at the time of the accident

  • How it has affected your income now and in the future

  • Costs of specialist medical care and treatments you may need to aid the recovery process

  • The cost of any appliances, mobility aids or equipment

  • The cost of any modifications to your home or personal medical care costs

You may be entitled to receive anything from several hundred to several thousand pounds in compensation depending on your circumstances.

No need to claim on your insurance

Anyone who has been involved in a road accident has the right to choose who repairs their vehicle. If you were responsible for the accident you were involved in, the company that insures your vehicle would normally deal with your accident claim.

However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.

No excess to pay

Unfortunately even if an accident was not your fault, your insurer will almost certainly require you to pay your excess before any repair is started on your car.

This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.

By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.

Receive a comparable replacement hire vehicle

Not all insurance policies will include a replacement hire-car for you to use if yours is damaged and unroadworthy. In fact it is typically an 'optional extra' on your policy.

Other policies may offer a 'courtesy car' but this is often just a 'basic' saloon or hatchback which may not be suitable for your needs.

Car Call and its partners will provide a comparable replacement vehicle as part of our service. This means we will endeavour to supply a hire-vehicle that similar to your own in terms of its type, make and engine size.

So whether you drive a small hatchback or a prestige sports car, we will look to provide a similar hire-vehicle that suits your needs.
