Taxi Accident Claims

Taxis are a popular mode of transport throughout the UK. Every day thousands of people use a range of taxis and private hire vehicles (PHV) to commute. However, taxis often transport multiple passengers which can result in several passengers sustaining a range of minor to severe injuries.

If you were injured in an accident as a passenger in a taxi, you may have the right to make an accident claim.

How Much Compensation For Taxi Accident Claims

Compensation will be calculated on an individual basis by assessing the severity of your injuries, the pain and suffering they have caused you, as well as the impact that they have had upon your life. To see how much compensation you might be owed for your injuries, visit our**compensation calculator.**

The amount of compensation that you are awarded will be determined by two categories: general damages and special damages.

General Damages

General damages refer to the physical and emotional damage caused by your injuries. In the simplest terms, it refers to compensation for pain and suffering. This type of compensation also covers any losses of amenity. Compensation will be awarded based upon the severity of these factors, understanding that the higher the severity of your complications, the worse the pain/suffering is.

Special Damages

Special damages compensation refers to compensation that covers the financial losses and expenses incurred as a result of an accident. Special damages could help to reclaim a loss of income if you have been unable to work due to your injuries. Similarly, if you have had to pay to go a medical appointment or if you had to pay to travel to a medical appointment, you could be able to claim these medical costs back.
