Passengers involved in taxi accidents are entitled to claim compensation if they are injured when travelling in any licenced taxi cab.
Whether it was the fault of the driver of your taxi or the driver of another vehicle involved in the accident, Car Call UK and its partners can arrange legal assistance for you to pursue a financial compensation settlement from the insurer of the person at-fault.
Compensation for injury claims can range from hundreds of pounds for a minor injury to many thousands for those that are more serious and life affecting.
We and our partners recover the cost of our assistance directly from the insurer of the at-fault Taxi driver on your behalf.
How do you calculate financial compensation?
This depends on many factors, all of which will be noted by your appointed solicitor when they discuss what has happened to you.
When they have this information, they will assess the value of your claim based on the following factors: -
The degree of discomfort you suffered at the time of the accident and your type of injury
How the injury is likely to impact on your life in the short and long term
If you need specialist treatment or therapies to help with your recovery
If your injury could lead to a permanent disability
Costs of medical aids or equipment you may need
Any assisted living modifications you may need to your home
The cost of adaptions to a car and other mobility aid requirements
The recovery of lost earnings if you are unable to work
Do I have to go to court?
The vast majority of injury compensation claims do not require you to appear in court.
Typically the solicitors we work with will discuss your situation by phone and if necessary send a representative to your home to assist with any documentation required.
The process is made as straightforward as possible for you.
You can be assured that your appointed solicitor will always look to achieve the best possible claim settlement for your particular injury.
