It sounds like you may have a case against the taxi driver or even the taxi company. You need to make sure your injuries are documented and that you know the identity of the taxi driver. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area.
If you were injured while in the taxi, then the taxi's insurance company should be legally obligated to pay for your medical bills relating to this accident. If you were injured due to the driver's negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering; however, this is not automatic.
Was this a private taxi company? A medical transport ride? Do you know the company? Do you know the driver's name? How serious are the injuries from this accident? These are all important questions in this case.
Most personal injury attorneys will offer a free consultation. Best advice is to contact one and then it can be determined what their able to do for you.
