    Compensation Claim in West Cowes


    Compensation Claim in West Cowes

    Passengers in Cars

    When you enter a car as a passenger, you are effectively relying on the good judgement and skill of the driver. Often, this reliance is rewarded with an incident free journey to your destination. However, car accidents (or Road Traffic Collisions as they are legally known) are sadly very common and as a passenger you may be injured through no fault of your own.

    UK law states that if a person has received injuries as the result of an accident which they did not cause then they have the right to make a compensation claim in West Cowes.

    Such a compensation claim in West Cowes could ensure that your pain and suffering as a passenger are recognised, that any medical or other expenses are refunded to you and that you and your family will not lose out financially should you need to take time away from work as you recuperate.

    When electing to make a compensation claim West Cowes, people just like you have been trusting Accident Advice Helpline to support them through the process for the last 13 years. Our experienced team can ensure that your claim process runs quickly and smoothly and our 30 second test could quickly establish the validity of your claim.

    When an Accident Happens

    As a passenger in a vehicle, it is generally accepted that you have no responsibility for the car. Unless you were to actually cause a distraction to the driver then it is unlikely that an accident could be your fault or linked to your behaviour.

    However, it may also be the case that the driver themselves is also not responsible for the accident in question. For example, were another car to drive or run into the car you were travelling in, it would not be either your fault, nor that of the driver of your car. Therefore, both you and the driver of the car you were travelling in would be able to make a compensation claim against the driver of the second car.

    Similarly, if a pedestrian were to run into the middle of the road forcing the driver of your car to swerve or crash to avoid hitting them but in the process causing injuries to you, then the fault is still not with your driver but with the person who recklessly ran out into the middle of the road.

    Whatever the nature of your injuries and their severity, the law supports people who have been involved in Road Traffic Collisions which they did not cause and allows them to make compensation claim in West Cowes.
