Experts in pursuing claims for personal injury since the year 2000, read on for advice and information about whether you can claim road traffic accident compensation in Pontrhydyfen.
Passengers in road traffic accidents
While lots of people talk about the dangers of being a driver – and, for that matter – a cyclist or a pedestrian – there seems to be less talk of the dangers of being a passenger, whether in a family car, a private coach, or a public bus.
But of course passengers face the same risks as drivers on the roads, and therefore are also entitled to seek compensation when they suffer an injury in an accident that wasn’t their fault.
It’s also worth remembering that you are in a vulnerable position as a passenger: you are trusting your safety to the driver. This can affect how any accident and injury affects you. Sometimes it is very hard for passengers who have been injured to feel safe about using the roads again. Sometimes there are emotional as well as physical scars.

Entitlement to claim road traffic accident compensation in Pontrhydyfen
Basically, to be entitled to claim compensation for an injury, there are three criteria:
- The accident needs to have occurred in the last three years (with some exceptions)
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault
- The injury needs to be evidenced by a medical professional, such as your GP
What if you know the driver?
Often, passengers who are injured don’t know the driver – if for example it’s a bus driver or a driver in a hired coach. However, just as often, passengers are injured in an accident caused by someone they know.
If you were injured in an accident caused by your husband or wife, or by a friend, you are still entitled to compensation. And don’t worry; insurance companies are used to handling this situation, and we at Accident Advice Helpline are here to support you.
