When you take a taxi journey, you are placing your safety in the hands of the taxi driver, and if you suffer an injury during this time, you may be entitled to claim compensation*. Furthermore, it is not only passengers who can be injured by taxis, but pedestrians too. No matter the circumstances leading to your accident, we can provide expert advice if you have suffered an injury in a taxi accident.

Taxi Accident Claims* Lawyers, Co. Donegal
How and where taxi accidents happen are subject to change for every case. Taxi accidents are often not the fault of the taxi driver, but in fact, another road user. Additionally, the accident may not have occurred during the journey, e.g. you may have suffered an injury getting into or out of the taxi vehicle.
Who is liable for my injury in a taxi accident?
If you are involved in a taxi accident as a passenger, who is liable for your injury will depend on who was at fault for causing the accident. It may be the driver of the vehicle the taxi collided with that you will bring your claim* against. However, in cases where the taxi driver was at fault, you will bring your claim* against them. It is also possible for blame to be apportioned, and so you may need to bring a claim* against both parties at the same time.
Can I make a claim* for a taxi accident if I was not wearing a seatbelt?
The law in Ireland states that you must wear a seatbelt in a taxi, even if you are in the backseat. However, even if you were not wearing a seatbelt during the accident, you may be able to make a claim for compensation*. You will likely be deemed to have contributed to your injury and, as a result, your compensation* amount may be reduced.
