Accidents on any road do not just happen to those individuals who happen to be driving. Passengers who are in the car may get hurt too and if that happens, they may have the grounds to make an accident claim in Holland Park.
Passengers are often given the raw end of the deal when it comes to making an accident claim because people do not think about what happens to them. Often, drivers of a vehicle are the only ones given consideration, but at Accident Advice Helpline, this is not the case at all. By calling us, anyone who was injured as a passenger in a vehicle can make their accident claim in Holland Park too, and they may even be compensated for being injured.
Passenger accident claim in Holland Park
If you have been in the unfortunate situation of being a passenger in a car when an accident occurred, you may have been injured in any of the following ways:
- Leg trauma – when a car crashes, the dashboard may collapse trapping a passenger’s legs in the car. While this could be a temporary situation, in some cases it may occur that the passenger’s legs are crushed or that there is muscle or nerve damage in which case they can certainly make an accident claim in Holland Park.
- Head trauma – whiplash is probably the most common ailment that passengers experience when they are involved in a car crash. This can cause severe neck and head pain and, for some unlucky individuals, can cause permanent and chronic headaches that never go away.
- Body trauma – whether a small or a large accident, trauma to the body is a given with those who are passengers. You see, even the action of the seatbelt restraining them when there is a car crash can cause trauma such as broken ribs or damage to the chest cavity. They should still wear seatbelts even with this knowledge because an accident experienced without one can be ten times worse.
Being the passenger in a car that was involved in an accident can be very traumatic, especially since there is no way to exert any control over the person driving. If you have experienced such an accident, it may serve you to know that Dame Esther Rantzen recommends speaking to Accident Advice Helpline.
