Taxis are a great means of transport for getting around big cities and also are vital means of transport for a night out when you don’t want to drink and drive. However, as with all methods of transport, there is the potential for a road traffic accident which can leave you seriously injured.
At EAD we have nearly 40 years of experience dealing with personal injury claims and our expert solicitors fully understand what is involved in road traffic accident claims and the long term social, physical and financial impacts a serious car accident injury can have on yourself and your family.
There are things you can do at the scene of a taxi accident, and shortly after, to help your claim for injury compensation have a better chance of success:-
Record the name, address, registration details and company contact details of your taxi driver and taxi.
Record the contact details of anybody else involved in the accident.
Record the contact details of anyone who witnessed the accident.
Take photos of the scene of the accident, a witness can do this if you are too injured to do so. If you dont have a camera then draw a rough sketch.
Report the accident to the police if somebody is injured – This is a legal requirement but also means that there is an official record of the accident.
Seek medical attention – regardless of the extent of your injury you should get a thorough medical check up as things like whiplash can take a few days to develop. Again, this means that there is a record to support your case.
Contact a specialist injury solicitor with experience in claiming compensation for road traffic accidents (RTAs).
Every year taxi accidents can cost lives and cause the serious injuries of thousands. If you have been injured whilst riding in a taxi, we can help you gain the compensation you are entitled to. For more information on making claim call us on 0151 735 1000.
Extremely happy with the outcome of my Personal Injury Claim and can only thank Paul McCarthy and his team at EAD Solicitors and also Tim Trotman my barrister arranged by EAD, for all their work and efforts on my behalf. As such I would highly recommend EAD to anyone in need of their service. Once again thanks to all involved.
