If you have been hurt in a road traffic accident (RTA) as a passenger in a vehicle of any description, you may be aware that you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the driver at fault for the accident.
In the large majority of RTA compensation claim cases, the driver’s insurance company would be responsible for paying for any compensation claim that you made against the guilty party, unless the driver was uninsured. That said, even if the driver was not insured, there is still a chance that you can claim personal injury compensation, but the process may be more lengthy and complicated.
No win, no fee lawyers in North East Lincolnshire and road traffic accidents
To make a personal injury compensation claim, the road traffic accident you were involved in does not have to be a multiple car incident, or a high-speed crash. It doesn’t have to have made the newspapers, either.
In fact, it will not really matter how fast the vehicle you were in was travelling: if you were injured and the accident was not your fault, you may well be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you know the driver, then you should not worry about damaging your relationship with that person, either — if you have been hurt, and it was their fault, you have the right to be compensated, regardless of who was driving the vehicle and your relationship to that person. It should be kept in mind, too, that the person against who you are claiming is not likely to be the one paying out — it is the insurance company.
