If you have been injured as a passenger in a taxi, your taxi should be both licenced and insured specifically to carry fare paying passengers.
This enables you to seek compensation for any injuries you have sustained if the taxi driver caused the accident due to careless driving.
If it turns out that that the driver was not at-fault and another vehicle involved was, then your injury claim would be made from the insurer of the other driver instead.
