Been injured in a road accident in St Helens while travelling as a passenger in a vehicle? Then you might be able to sue the individual or organisation that was responsible for said crash with the assistance of a top 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor. That’s right; you don’t have to be the driver of a vehicle that was involved in a crash to take personal injury action.
If you were involved in an accident that was not your fault, you will stand just as good a chance of receiving a compensation pay-out as the person who was driving the vehicle you were in, unless of course the driver of the vehicle you were in was responsible for the accident. If this was the case, you still might be able to pursue a pay-out from the driver’s insurer.
Passengers and a road accident in St Helens
Maybe a vehicle went into the back of your partner’s car while you were in the passenger seat, causing you a very nasty whiplash injury in the process. Perchance you were travelling on a coach when it became involved in an accident that was caused by the negligent behaviour of the driver.
Maybe you sustained an injury in a road accident in St Helens while travelling in a taxi when the driver who was transporting you hit another car at a busy junction. In all of these circumstances, and others like them, there will be a pretty good chance that you might be able to pursue some form of personal injury compensation.
You will however need to be conscious of the fact that any pay-out that you might be entitled to could be cut if it could be proved that your conduct in any way contributed to the severity of the injuries you suffered. If, for example, you were not wearing your seatbelt when you should have been, the size of your compensation pay-out could well be reduced.
Nevertheless, looking into pursuing a personal injury pay-out after being injured in a road accident in St Helens could still be very much worth your while even if your behaviour was partly to blame for what happened to you.
