Common Causes Of Taxi Accident Claims
A road traffic accident can leave you feeling stressed, anxious and not knowing what to do. Although it’s easier said than done, it is best to try and stay calm.
There is a lot of information you will need to collect regarding the accident and the driver:
- Try to obtain as much information about the driver as possible, insurance details, name, address, contact numbers, registration
- Damage to the vehicles, try to take photos not just of the damage to your own vehicle but to the other driver’s vehicle as well
- Injuries – document any injuries, medical appointments, medication taken etc. (ensure you seek medical advice for your injuries from a GP)
- If the police were involved, ensure all information provided by them is kept, most importantly the reference number they provide you

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Who will pay the compensation?
It is very rare for the employer concerned to actually shoulder the payment of industrial disease compensation. In the vast majority of cases compensation comes from your employer's "Employers Liability Insurance". It is a legal requirement for all UK employers to have a policy of this type.
Furthermore, in the event that you are still employed by the defendant there are a number of legal safeguards in place to protect you from unfair dismissal or discrimination made on the basis of your claim.
Can I claim compensation following work in Scotland, if I now live outside of Scotland?
Yes. Many of our claimants now live abroad in locations such as France, South Africa and Australia. If you worked in Scotland before you moved overseas, you can bring a claim for compensation in the usual way.
If a family member has died as a result of an industrial disease, can we make a claim?
It is possible to claim compensation on behalf of a deceased family member. However, the claim must be brought within three years of the date of death. Similarly, if the claimant dies during the course of the case, the family can continue with the claim on his or her behalf.
However, if your family member has an industrial disease and later dies from an unrelated incident, you would have three years to claim in respect of the work related illness from the date they knew or ought to have known they were suffering from the condition, not from the date of the unrelated death.
What are the time limits for industrial disease claims?
You can make a claim up to three years from the date the you knew or ought to have known that you were suffering from a work-related illness, or three years from the date of last exposure to any substance or process which has caused the condition (whichever is the later date).
Given that many industrial diseases take a long time to develop, it may be that you need to make a claim decades after the firm responsible for your illness has ceased to trade. But, as long as it is within three years of diagnosis of an industrial disease, it may still be possible to claim compensation when retired or no longer work for the former employer responsible for causing your illness.
