Generally, we think of taxis as a safe and dependable means of transportation. However, taxis can get into accidents, and when they do, innocent passengers are often harmed as a result. If you have been injured in a taxi accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any damages you have incurred. Please read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about what we can do for you.
How do I know if I qualify for compensation after a taxi accident?
The most important part of winning any personal injury claim is whether you can prove you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Your attorney will help you recover various types of evidence to prove your claim, including surveillance or dashcam footage of the accident, pictures of the accident’s aftermath, police reports of the incident, witness statements, and more.
Additionally, it is always a good idea to seek medical attention in the hours following your accident, even if you do not immediately feel any pain. Certain injuries take some time to set in, and the sooner you see a medical professional, the sooner he or she can proactively treat your injuries. What’s more, a physician will provide you with medical documents that will detail the extent and origin of your injuries, which you may use to further support your claim.
What is the statute of limitations for taxi accidents in Delaware?
Every state has a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims. In Delaware, the statute of limitations is two years. Simply put, this means you have two years from the date of your accident to pursue legal action against another party. Though two years may sound like a long time, the truth is, the sooner you file, the better. Additionally, if you wait more than two years, you will be denied your right to sue, no matter how badly you need the compensation. Reach out to our firm so we can begin the claims process and fight to win you the compensation you deserve.
