    Compensation for injured drivers and passengers


    Did you know that you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for injuries suffered whilst riding in a car as a passenger? If you’re travelling in a vehicle which is involved in a collision, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation if somebody else is at fault – whether that’s the driver of the vehicle you are travelling in or the driver of another vehicle. Injured drivers and passengers should ensure they contact a personal injury lawyer within three years of their accident, if they want to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    You can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice at any time after your accident, which could help you decide whether making a claim is the right next step for you to take.

    How have you been injured?

    Injured drivers and passengers may have been injured at a roundabout when somebody tailgating has rear-ended their vehicle. Or you could be hit by another vehicle such as a van or HGV on the motorway. You could even be injured when a HGV sheds its load and you are forced to swerve to avoid being hit. Whether you were the driver of the vehicle or a passenger, you could find yourself suffering from any of the following injuries:

    • Whiplash
    • Neck and shoulder injuries
    • Back injuries
    • Head injuries including brain injuries
    • Crush injuries (which could lead to amputation of a limb)
    • Broken bones
    • Cuts and bruises

    If you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame, such as the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in – whether that’s a car or a form of public transport like a coach – you could make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.

    How much compensation will you get?

    It’s impossible to say exactly how much compensation you could receive without knowing the full circumstances of your accident and the severity of your injuries.

    But our experienced personal injury lawyers will assess your claim and consider your injuries as well as any financial losses (such as loss of wages) when working out your settlement.
