Passengers Ability to Make a Claim for Compensation Following a Road Traffic Accident

The most common form of personal injury compensation claims derive from road traffic accidents and many road traffic accidents involve passengers in the vehicle.

Passengers who are injured as a result of a road traffic accident in almost all cases will have a successful claim for personal injury compensation. Many individuals who are unfortunately involved in road traffic accidents as a passenger believe that in circumstances where the driver of their vehicle is found to be at fault, they are unable to recover compensation for the injuries suffered. This is not the case, even if the driver of the vehicle you were a passenger in is at fault you are still entitled to pursue a claim for the injuries you have suffered from the driver’s insurer.

If you are unsure about pursing a claim against the driver of your vehicle, bear in mind that if they are responsible for the accident, the other party involved will make a claim against them, therefore it would have no further impact on their insurance premiums should you pursue a claim for the injuries you sustained.

As well as pursuing a claim for the injuries sustained you are entitled to pursue the costs of any specialist treatment you receive, such as private physiotherapy. You are also entitled to recover any lost earnings you have incurred and costs of care and assistance provided to you by family and friends as a result of being involved in a non-fault accident.
