Passenger Accidents

If you’ve been injured as a passenger in a road accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you have a right to claim for personal injury compensation.

It is not only the driver of cars involved in road accidents that are able to claim but passengers too, and in fact drivers have a legal obligation to care for passengers in their care. This duty of care applies whether you’re the passenger in a private vehicle or on public transport.

Provided you were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the car accident and not distracting the driver, or wearing the necessary safety gear if travelling as pillion passenger on a motorcycle, it’s likely you can make a compensation claim for your passenger injuries.

Passenger Injuries Caused By Car Accidents

You can potentially claim for compensation if your personal injuries are the result of a car accident, whether the driver of the vehicle you were in was responsible or not.

While we appreciate that when it is the driver of the car you were travelling in at the time who is responsible for the accident and subsequent injuries, there’s a chance this person is your friend or relative and you may not wish to make a claim because of this. However, always remember that compensation could help your recovery, and it is the driver’s insurance company that would pay any compensation and not the driver.

If the driver responsible is uninsured or left the scene and can’t be traced, you may be able to make a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.

For free advice and guidance on making a claim, our passenger injury claims specialists are here to help. We will support your case, should you decide to make a claim, on a No Win No Fee basis meaning you will get 100% of the compensation if successful and not pay a penny, win or lose.

Passenger Injuries Caused By Public Transport Accidents

Drivers of public transport vehicles like buses and taxis have a duty of care to their passengers. If you’re injured in a crash or as a result of unsafe driving when travelling as a passenger, you may be entitled to compensation.

Our personal injury solicitors are experienced at handling passenger accidents claims and will help you make a claim for the compensation you deserve, on a No Win No Fee basis.
