  • Typical Causes of Taxi Accidents
  • Taxi Accidents & Seat Belts
When taxi passengers are injured in road traffic accidents and the taxi driver is to blame, it will be possible to claim compensation from the taxi operator and its insurers. Taxi drivers owe passengers a duty of care to transport them as safely as possible to their destination, and when a passenger is injured due to the negligence of a taxi driver they will be entitled to compensation. While taxi accidents can happen anywhere, they often occur in congested urban areas such as Liverpool, as this is where taxis operate the most, and where traffic tends to be the heaviest.
There are numerous potential causes of taxi accidents. For example, a taxi driver may be distracted while talking to their control office and not paying proper attention to road and traffic conditions, resulting in a collision. Alternatively, they may be driving too fast if they are running behind schedule and be forced to brake late or suddenly to avoid a crash (a possible cause of whiplash injuries). Excessive speed can also lead to skids, especially during periods of heavy rain or snow and ice. A further possibility is that a taxi driver is driving under the influence of drink or drugs, impairing their ability to drive safely.
Taxis may be unsafe due to poor vehicle maintenance or a lack of basic safety. Taxi drivers are responsible for ensuring that passengers aged under 14 wear a seat belt. While passengers aged 14 years and over are responsible for wearing a seat belt in taxis, this does not mean that they cannot claim compensation if they are not wearing one at the time of an accident. In this scenario, compensation may be reduced by up to 25% under the principle of contributory negligence (the passenger’s partial responsibility for exposing themselves to the risk of being injured).
