The vast majority of taxi accident victims will be eligible to claim some form of financial compensation, however the amount will vary dependent upon the severity of the injuries involved. Taxi passengers who suffer the most serious injuries, such as broken bones, head injuries and serious spinal injuries, will receive higher amounts of compensation than those who suffer minor whiplash or bruising.
If your injuries were more severe because you were not wearing a seatbelt, you may find the amount of compensation you can claim is reduced, as the defendant’s representatives in your claim may argue that you should have been wearing a seatbelt, and may therefore press for your claim to include an element of contributory negligence; where your contribution to the harm you have suffered means that you receive a reduced percentage of your overall claim amount.
For an accurate idea of the amount of compensation you could be eligible to claim, and to discuss the details of your case with one of our legal advisors, speak to YouClaim today.
