Whiplash injury in Ballasalla


If you thought that you needed to have been driving a car after suffering a whiplash injury in Ballasalla in a road traffic accident that was not your fault to make a claim for compensation, think again. The truth is that passengers can retain the services of a top-class no-win, no-fee* personal injury solicitor if they suffered a whiplash injury in an accident that was not their fault. In fact, a passenger who has suffered a whiplash injury might even be able to take some form of personal injury action against the driver of the car they were travelling in if this person was actually responsible for the crash.

It will be worth bearing in mind though that the amount of money you might win could be reduced if you were deemed to have contributed to the severity of your injuries. If you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, for instance, your pay-out could be lower. You might also encounter problems with your claim if you were in some way distracting the driver of the car that you were travelling in, perhaps by larking about.

Passengers and a whiplash injury in Ballasalla

It’s the end of a working week and you’ve blagged a lift home off a work colleague. A whiplash injury in Ballasalla could hardly be further from your mind. You’re having a good chat as you make your way out of town and are looking forward to your weekend. So engrossed in your conversation is your workmate, that she takes her eyes off the road for a moment too long and winds up slamming into the back of a large heavy goods vehicle. You are thrown forward in your seat, with your seatbelt stopping you from banging your head on the dashboard.

Apart from the shock, you don’t feel too bad and neither does the driver. However, a few hours later you start to develop the symptoms of a whiplash injury in Ballasalla. As the driver that was transporting you home was responsible for your suffering, there will be a chance that you might be able to make a claim against her. If you were to win a pay-out, her car insurance cover provider would have to pay you. Although your colleague would only have to pay any excess on her policy, it would be likely that her premium would go up after you made a claim.
