Legal assistance for Uber Taxi accident claims


Probably the biggest concern of any independent Uber Taxi driver is losing days or weeks of valuable business due to vehicle repairs or injury after an accident.

If you have had an accident in your Taxi and it wasn’t your fault, it makes sense to ensure you get a suitable replacement plated private hire Taxi as a replacement and/or pursue a compensation claim if you are injured.

Our service allows you to avoid making a costly claim on your insurance and sorting out a solicitor for your compensation.

We only have your best interests in mind, because we operate independently of all insurers and recover the costs involved in resolving your accident, directly from the insurer of the person responsible.

Our service does not cost you anything at all.


Injury compensation and loss of income

Your non-fault accident claim will take into account a range of issues that are likely to be directly or indirectly linked to your injuries or loss of access to your work vehicle.

These include:

  • The degree of discomfort you suffered at the time of the accident and your type of injury

  • How the injury is likely to affect your life

  • Needs for specialist treatment or therapy to aid the recovery process

  • If the injury is likely to lead to a permanent disability

  • Costs of medical aids or equipment you may need

  • Personal care or assistance requirements

  • Any modifications you may need to your home

  • Adapted vehicle or mobility aid requirements

  • Loss of earnings if you are unable to work due to an injury or the loss of use of your work vehicle



I don’t claim on my Taxi insurance at all then?

No, it’s not necessary to make claim on your own insurance.

We will arrange your legal assistance, your Taxi repairs and a replacement plated Taxi for you to use whilst yours is repaired.

Consequently your annual insurance premium should not increase because of your accident and you won’t have to pay your excess and get the money refunded months later.

We also notify your own insurer ‘for information purposes only’ so you comply fully with the terms of your policy.

If you would like to arrange legal assistance after an accident in your Taxi and get your own Taxi repaired, call on 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

Any policyholder can use this service, and it is your legal right to choose who repairs your vehicle. All assistance offered and information given on this page is provided by Car Call and its partners , no association or affiliation to any particular insurer is intended in any way, and your statutory rights are unaffected.


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 like-for-like 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 like-for-like 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.
