    Taxi driver accident claims

    Driving your taxi is what provides for you, your family and your loved ones. It is your job, and when your taxi is involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it can be devastating for you all.

    You may be worried about loss of earnings as a result of being in the accident, or you may be suffering from injuries. Whatever your reasons, we are here to help you.

    We can arrange for a suitably equipped vehicle of a similar size to your own to be delivered to you for the duration of the repairs. Whether you drive a saloon, people carrier or a black cab, we can usually find the type of vehicle you need. That means that you can continue working while your vehicle is being repaired. Why should you be inconvenienced as a result of another person’s negligence?

    You may have also been injured as a result of your accident. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be entitled to redress for loss of earnings and medical expenses. This is where we come in.

    At Watermans, we employ a team of expert road traffic collision experts, who are here to offer you straightforward legal advice.

    Making a claim

    How do I make a taxi driver accident claim?

    If you are a taxi driver and have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. You don’t always have to go through your insurance company.

    Using our alternative claims assistance allows you to get your vehicle repaired while you drive a suitable replacement, and legal assistance is provided all without potentially losing your no-claims bonus and increasing the future cost of your car insurance. Your insurer will be notified as required by law but it will not be registered as a claim on your policy.

    At Watermans, we and our partners can organise repairs to your taxi at one of our approved accident repair centres. Unlike your insurer, we can arrange for your taxi to be repaired at a garage of your choice if you prefer.

    We take the hassle out of the legal stuff, so that you can concentrate on recovering from your accident, and getting back on the roads again for work. We provide a fast, friendly and efficient taxi accident claims service and can usually place you in a like-for-like replacement taxi within 24 hours.

    Speak to our dedicated team today. It should be that simple.

    How much compensation?

    How much compensation for a taxi driver accident?

    The amount of compensation that you can claim for a taxi accident is dependent on the severity of the accident, and the damage caused to your vehicle. It will also depend on whether or not you have sustained physical injuries from the accident, which you are also entitled to claim for.
