    accident in a taxi

    Just wondered - has anyone had to claim for an accident in a taxi before?

    I was rear ended when a passenger in early Jan, had severe neck pain and had some time off work. I tried chasing the Taxi company straight away and they constantly delayed giving me info. Today I get told I only have 28 days to claim which has just passed and therefore won't be eligible for lost earnings which amount to about $5k

    Pretty pissed with it, have just had a baby so loosing that amount of money wasn't on the agenda..

    Any ideas of how I can approach this?

    Many thanks!

    Doesn't matter, don't ride them anymore anyway.

    I'd imagine that if you have evidence you were trying to get information out of them, then the 28 days wouldn't be an issue as youd been trying to deal with the problem.

    But then again logical things like this are frowned upon in todays society.

    Best of luck.

    You know lawyers are a thing? right?
