When Can I Make A Taxi Cab Accident Compensation Claim?
There are many types of road traffic accidents which can cause personal harm whilst travelling as a passenger in a taxi. These include, but are not limited to, a taxi crashing due to an error by the cab driver, a crash due to an error by another driver, an injury resulting from a sharp turn or skid (for example on ice) or whiplash due to driving erratically. In the eyes of the law the passenger cannot be responsible for any RTA sustained in a taxi. There is usually a three-year time limit after the accident has taken place for you to start a legal compensation claim.
Are Taxi Cab Accident Claims Always Possible?
While collision claims are always possible when you sustain injury through no fault of your own, whether these claims are made against your taxi driver or another driver is dependent on the context of the case. Still, the law asserts that as a taxi passenger, you hold almost no liability for any injury you sustain in a road traffic accident while in a taxi cab, which makes a compensation claim very much advisable in the event of an injury.
How Much Taxi Cab Accident Compensation Will I Receive?
The amount of compensation paid out – not just in taxi cab claims, but in all road traffic accident cases – is different according to the circumstances and evidence of that particular instance. Nevertheless, there are crucial variables which decide the amount of compensation that could be payable, such as the severity of injury you received and whether or not the taxi driver was driving at excessive speed. If passenger injuries are worsened by the failure to wear a seatbelt, the amount of compensation is mitigated, and will probably be split between you and the taxi driver due to contributory negligence (errors you have made which contribute to your injury). Similarly, if the taxi driver is able to prove you were responsible for the crash in any way, deductions may be made. When this happens, a compensation claim may be settled as split liability, leaving each party a percentage of the actual value of their claim.
However, taxi cab compensation claims can be very valuable due to injury and stress caused which is obviously not your fault. Cab accident claims are among the easiest of road traffic accident claims to prove liability.
