Most taxi drivers are experienced and skilled motorists, but a combination of long shifts and infrequent breaks between fares puts them – and their passengers – at risk of injuries in an accident. This can happen in either a booked cab from a taxi company or a black cab that you have flagged down.
The last thing passengers expect when they’re sitting back, unconcerned with the toils of driving, is that they will end up sustaining serious injuries, but it is a real risk.

If you are involved in a crash while travelling as a passenger in a taxi you should, if you are able:
If you contributed to the severity of your injuries by not wearing your seatbelt then you may find the amount of compensation you can claim is reduced – but you can still claim, so get in touch.
