Why should I use Canter Levin & Berg if I've been injured driving a taxi?

Our friendly and knowledgeable team will work closely with you to make sure your accident claim is dealt with quickly and professionally. If you are able to return to work after your accident, we will make sure that you have access to a taxi when you need it, so that you can get on with your work and so that the impact of the accident on your finances is kept to an absolute minimum.

We have solicitors who are members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel. This reflects the expertise of our solicitors and their commitment to providing the highest levels of service when it comes to dealing with injury claims made by taxi drivers. As part of your claim, you will receive a medical examination from a doctor with experience treating people with similar injuries to assess the extent the nature of your injuries. We’ll take the medical report produced by this doctor to help us calculate the amount of compensation you are eligible to claim - you can leave the rest to us.

Our solicitors don’t just deal with your compensation claim either, we provide a full accident management service that can assist with the everyday issues that can seem so difficult to deal with following an accident, such as sorting out a replacement for the vehicle damaged in your accident. We know that as a taxi driver, this is especially important as you rely on access to your taxi to make a living.

As part of the accident management service we provide to you during your taxi driver accident claim, we will see to it that:

  • Your taxi is recovered after the accident, either from the scene or from your drive and taken to a secure location where it can be inspected for damage by a qualified vehicle engineer.

  • In a situation where repairs to your taxi are possible, then we will arrange for your taxi to be taken to a specialist garage or body shop where your taxi will be repaired to its pre-accident condition.

  • Whilst your taxi is off the road for repairs, or if it was written off after the accident and you haven’t yet sorted out a replacement vehicle, we will provide a like-for-like replacement for you to use, including an official taxi licence plate.

  • Any expenses you have incurred attending medical examinations as part of your case are included in the compensation claim made by our solicitors.

  • Your insurance is unaffected by your accident and any no-claims bonus you might have built up is kept intact.

  • The earnings you may have lost out on if you are unable to drive for any length of time after your accident are included as part of the money claimed.

  • Physiotherapy and rehabilitation treatment to aid your recovery can be arranged if you require it.
