If you are injured in a road traffic accident as a passenger in a car or other motor vehicle then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
If you were a passenger and were injured in a road traffic accident it is likely you will be able to make a compensation claim. You can make a claim for passenger compensation if the driver of the car you are in was to blame for the accident or if another driver was to blame.
The circumstances in which a passenger is to blame or has contributed to the accident are extremely rare and as a result a passenger will almost always succeed to receive compensation for personal injury.
Many passenger injury claims are for whiplash although passengers sometimes also claim for a wide range of other injuries including head wounds, broken bones, brain damage and spinal cord injury.
As well as claiming for your injuries, you can also claim for loss of earnings and physiotherapy treatment fees for example along with other recoverable heads of claims.
What will it cost?
A passenger accident compensation claim can be dealt with on a no win, no fee basis known as a Conditional Fee Agreement.
If the passenger’s vehicle was at fault the passenger will be receive compensation from the driver’s insurers. You need not worry about making a compensation claim for injuries if a friend, relative or colleague was the driver. They may lose their no claims bonus after they make a claim to their insurance company but your personal injury claim won’t cost them anything. Any compensation you receive will be paid for by their insurance company.
