If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, you might be wondering if you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation. Did you know that you could make a claim whether you were a driver, passenger or pedestrian who has been injured on the roads? Passenger accident claims are handled in much the same way as other road traffic accident claims – and you could be compensated for your pain, suffering and any financial losses you have incurred as a result of your accident. Provided it has been three years or less since you were injured, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out more about making a claim.
How common are passenger accident claims?
Passenger accident claims can be made if you were travelling in another vehicle as a passenger and you were injured, for example in a collision. You might have been travelling in a car with the driver, or maybe you were travelling on a bus, train or other form of public transport when there was a collision or accident that caused your injuries. These types of claims are fairly common, and Accident Advice Helpline has helped thousands of people claim compensation after travelling as a passenger in a road traffic accident.
You deserve to be compensated if you have been injured by a negligent driver – and it could be the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in, or the driver of another vehicle who is at fault. Either way, the insurance company of the driver at fault should pay out if your claim is successful. If you’re injured whilst travelling as a passenger on public transport, the firm responsible for the service could be held liable.
How much does it cost to make a claim?
