Were You a Passenger in a Car Accident?


Are you making a claim as a passenger in a car accident?

If you’ve been hurt while travelling and you weren’t driving or responsible for the vehicle at that time, you may need to make a claim as a passenger in a car accident in order to obtain compensation. Although it may seem obvious that you weren’t responsible for the incident if you’re making a claim as a passenger in a car accident, you will still need to show this in order to make a successful claim and obtain the compensation you deserve.

Although many incidents which give rise to claims as a passenger in a car accident occur when people are travelling privately, such as in a friend’s vehicle, they can occur in other ways as well. For example, you could suffer an injury while travelling by taxi or minicab, or as a passenger on the back of a motorcycle which is involved in an accident.

Although we often associate a road traffic accident claim with an incident occurring on UK soil, significant numbers of people also experience accidents and injuries while they’re abroad. Often, the difference in driving regulations and restrictions can result in unwanted accidents occurring, as even experienced drivers can find it hard to adapt.

If you’re hurt while travelling abroad, you could still make a claim as a passenger in a car accident and obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered. When you make a successful claim as a passenger in a car accident, you will be awarded compensation that reflects the type of injuries you sustained and the severity of those injuries.

Although a compensation award can often be hard to predict, we’ve launched our 30-second test so it’s easy for potential claimants to find out just how much compensation they could obtain if their claim as a passenger in a car accident is successful. If you’d like to take our 30-second test today, simply visit Accident Advice Helpline online!

Don’t forget — when you make a claim as a passenger in a car accident, you can also make a claim for any income you’ve lost as a result of your injury. So, if you’ve had to take time off work or have given up work completely because of your injuries, then your compensation award could be higher than you think.
