Liability in a Taxi Accident

There are many cases where people travel as passengers in a taxi and get involved in a collision. The analysis of fault in a motor vehicle accident is critical to the evaluation of your claim. There are increased responsibilities and obligations that fall on a professional driver who drives for a living, such as a taxi driver.

If you have suffered injuries due to an at-fault driver, whether it is your taxi driver or another party, you as a passenger can claim personal injury compensation and accident benefits, whether or not you, yourself have car insurance.

If you are injured in a taxi, you should:

  • Call the police;
  • Call a personal injury lawyer to ensure your rights are protected;
  • Collect information about the taxi driver, his/her license, personal details;
  • Keep details where the accident happened and take pictures;
  • Obtain the name of witnesses;
  • Collect out-of-pocket expenses.

This list is not exhaustive.
