Taxi drivers carry insurance from ICBC, just like other British Columbians who insure their cars for personal use. A collision that involves a taxi entitles both drivers and passengers to accident benefits, and with legal representation, you can claim appropriate compensation for the losses the taxi accident has caused you.
Michael Golden and the rest of our team at Michael Golden Law Corporation will work on your behalf to get you the benefits you need, whether you were driving a taxi or were a passenger. Over Michael's 20 years representing ICBC claimants and his more than 25 years in practice as a lawyer, he has worked to get accident victims the benefits they need to move forward.
Unique Aspects of a Taxi Accident
A taxi driver's ICBC claim may have a layer of complexity, in particular if the taxi driver is unable to work for a period of time and requires lost income benefits. Since a taxi driver is self-employed, estimating income losses may be difficult. Taxi drivers may be able to claim workers' compensation benefits, but only if they are registered with WCB.
As a passenger, recovering compensation may require the diligent work of a lawyer to establish who was at fault for the taxi accident and who should be liable to pay you compensation for your injuries.
A lawyer can advise you as to the best course of action to take to get the most from your ICBC accident benefits and whether a lawsuit may be in your best interest. From our office in Burnaby, our team helps victims of Vancouver taxi accidents assert their legal rights.
