    Compensation for hospitalised car passengers


    It’s likely that at some point or another, you’ve been a passenger in another vehicle, whether you regularly hitch a lift to work, occasionally ride in a car with friends to go shopping or even take a taxi to your destination.

    As a car passenger, your safety is probably the last thing on your mind, but if you’re in a car with a dangerous driver, you’re at risk of being injured, should they crash.

    Hospitalised car passengers could have been seriously injured in a car crash – here are a few examples of the types of injury which could be sustained:

    • Broken bones
    • Lacerations, minor cuts and bruises
    • Head injuries
    • Whiplash
    • Shock
    • Spinal injuries
    • Crush injuries
    • Burns (if the vehicle catches on fire)
    • Facial injuries

    Some of these injuries could be life-threatening, and you may be left dealing with ongoing symptoms or issues after your accident. Hospitalised car passengers may make a full recovery, or could need further treatment and physiotherapy to rehabilitate them after an accident.

    Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of people claim personal injury compensation, and we could help you. Find out right now how much you could claim by taking the 30-second test on our website.
