    South Hams No Win No Fee* Accident


    Passengers can be severely injured in road traffic accidents, and it does not matter in what type of vehicle they are a passenger in. They could be in a car, a commercial vehicle, on a bus or on the back of a motorbike. All passengers are just as likely to be injured in accidents that were not their fault as the drivers, and they have the same rights to make a South Hams, no win no fee* accident claim for compensation.

    Passenger in the at fault vehicle? You can still make a South Hams, no win no fee* accident claim

    If you were a passenger in a vehicle that causes an accident, the accident would be the fault of the driver, and not yours. So if you have sustained injuries that needed medical attention in this way, some time in the last three years, you are entitled to make a South Hams, no win no fee* accident claim.

    If you were a passenger on a bus that crashed, it would not matter if your bus driver was at fault or not. The accident still would not be your fault, and you would still be able to make a South Hams, no win no fee* accident claim.

    If you were the pillion on the back of a motorbike, the same thing applies, just as it would for any injuries you sustained while the passenger in or on any other type of vehicle.

    The injuries passengers can sustain

    The injuries passengers sustain are just the same ones that drivers suffer from, and can include:

    • Back and spine injuries
    • Eye injuries
    • Facial injuries
    • Damage to joints

    • Internal injuries
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Fatal injuries

    On average, 5 people a day lose their lives on UK roads, and not all of these are drivers, this figure includes passengers and pedestrians.

    Who you should be claiming your compensation from

    This depends on who caused the accident, but if it was the driver of the car you were in, and this happens to be a friend or relative, do not let that sop you making a claim, and in fact they should encourage you to do so. The compensation does not come out of their pockets, but is settled by their motor insurance, and they pay for this as part of the premiums we all pay every year.

    And do not feel sorry for the insurance companies, just think how many policies they sell every year that no claims are made against. This is why their profits are in the millions.
