If you were a fare paying passenger travelling in a properly licenced and insured taxi cab, you have the same legal rights as anyone travelling as a passenger in any vehicle.
All vehicle drivers have a ‘duty of care’ to ensure that the people in the vehicle are transported safely to their destination. So, if they put their passengers in danger by driving carelessly - they will be responsible for the consequences.
The solicitors we work with will provide you with the specialist help and support you need to pursue a compensation claim from the insurer of the driver responsible for the accident.
If you are a passenger in a car and you have been injured due to the careless actions of the driver, Car Call UK and our partners can arrange legal assistance for you if you wish to claim compensation for your injuries.
Of course, if it is subsequently decided that the driver of another vehicle was responsible, then we will pursue the injury claim from the insurer of this driver instead.
We have help thousands of drivers every year get the compensation they are entitled to following road traffic accidents. Depending on your particular circumstances, you could be entitled to claim compensation ranging from several hundred pounds to many thousands for your injury.
