It is an unfortunate and inescapable fact of motoring life road traffic accidents happen on a daily basis.
Sadly those accidents often result in injury to drivers and their passengers and a claim for compensation can follow.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a claim for compensation after a road traffic accident and can give advice to drivers who may cause a passenger injury claim.
Whenever possible, drivers should look to gather as much information as possible. They should:
- Obtain details of everyone involved in the accident.
- Gather relevant insurance details.
- Ask witnesses for contact information.
- If possible take photographs of cars involved and the road conditions.
These details and information will help when you or your passenger(s) make an injury claim and can help drivers show the accident was not their fault.
Even if you are unable to take photos straight away, return to the scene as soon as possible
It is advisable to seek immediate medical attention for you and your passenger(s), however minor injuries may appear, and it is especially important if someone has banged their head.
Any passenger may be entitled to make a passenger injury claim for compensation, providing the accident was not their fault and as they have little, or no control of events leading up to an accident, they will have a case to claim.
If you you’re the driver then you will make a claim against the driver at fault, and the passenger will also make a claim against that driver but if it was your fault then the claim will be against you.
If you were the driver and the accident was not your fault, you will be entitled to claim compensation and so will your passenger.
The most common cause of injury in a road traffic accident includes, whiplash, chest injuries from the seatbelt, head injuries, hip, pelvis and leg injuries, or worse depending on the severity of the accident.
