Road traffic accidents can cause all kinds of injuries, some of the most common of which are whiplash, back injury or spinal damage. Even though the roads are a lot safer in recent years than they’ve ever been, thanks to public safety awareness campaigns and improved road maintenance, accidents still happen on the roads every day.
No matter how careful or courteous a driver you are, you might still find yourself involved in an accident that was someone else’s fault, perhaps another driver speeding, or not concentrating on the roads.
What if you were a passenger involved in a road traffic accident though?
In many ways, you might have an easier claim than if you were a driver involved in a similar accident, or indeed most other personal injury cases. This is because the passenger will not have to prove liability – one of the drivers of the cars involved is going to be at fault.
If it was a one-car accident, like the driver crashing into a bollard or tree, liability will usually fall to the driver, because they will be seen to have been negligent – either by causing the accident to occur, or by failing to take measures to prevent the crash. There are, of course, exceptions to this – very sudden accidents where the driver couldn’t reasonably be expected to have braked or swerved, for instance.
In a two or more car accident, one of the drivers involved is definitely going to be at fault. It would be very rare indeed to find a road traffic accident involving two or more cars where one of the drivers wasn’t to blame in some way.
That said, this brief overview shows you how complex these types of claims can be, so it’s a good idea to get professional advice and representation before you make a claim.
