Taxi driver injury compensation

If you have suffered a personal injury whilst driving your Taxi, you may be entitled to claim compensation from the at-fault driver.

A personal injury claim settlement can range from several hundred pounds to many thousands depending on your injuries.

We will arrange for an experienced personal injury solicitor to assess your claim, and they will consider all the factors relating to your injury and how your personal circumstances are likely to be affected.

Factors that will be considered include: -

  • How much stress and discomfort you have suffered

  • Potential income you may lose if you are unable to work

  • Medical expenses and treatments you may need to aid your recovery

  • The cost of specialised appliances, mobility aids or equipment

  • Any special modifications to your home or personal care costs

Your appointed solicitor will sympathetically assess your particular circumstances and discuss your claim settlement options with you. A settlement will then be sought from the at-fault driver’s insurer that is in your best interests.

Our aim is to make the whole injury claim process as easy as possible for you, so you can get on with your daily activities with the minimum of disruption.

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.
