What are No Win No Fee agreements?

The vast majority of Accident Advice Helpline’s road traffic accident claims involving passengers are dealt with under the terms of a No Win No Fee agreement. What this means is, if you were to lose your case, you would not have to pay anything so there is absolutely no financial risk to you. For more information about No Win No Fee agreements, click here.

What type of injuries can passengers sustain in a road traffic accident?

There are many types of injuries which passengers can suffer as a result of a road traffic accident, from mild whiplash injuries to quite serious injuries. Our expert solicitors have a vast amount of experience in representing all types of injuries and can provide you with the legal advice and assistance necessary to get the best possible outcome to your case.

Whatever your injury, if someone else is at fault, you may have the right to compensation. For more information, contact us online or call us on 0800 083 5045.

What if the road traffic accident happened abroad?

If you have been injured as a passenger in an accident which happened abroad, you may still be able to seek compensation. It is not always straightforward to seek compensation for accidents abroad which is why if your accident happened overseas, you should choose solicitors who have expertise in travel litigation.

How much compensation do you get if you are injured as a passenger in an accident?

It is impossible to say how much compensation you are entitled to if you have been injured as a passenger in a road traffic accident. It would very much depend on the level of your injuries and the losses you have incurred.

For example, the compensation awarded to someone who had injured their shoulder resulting in them having six weeks off work, would be very different to someone who had suffered a spinal cord injury and was unable to return to work. Read our FAQs for more information on what you can claim for or contact our experts today who will provide you with guidance once they have taken full details of your case.
