Passenger Accident Compensation Claims

Start your passenger injury claim today

Road traffic accidents don’t just affect the drivers of the cars – any road user can be eligible to make a claim. If you were the passenger in a vehicle when it crashed and the driver of the vehicle you were in was at fault, you could still make a claim.

If you have suffered life-changing injuries due to negligence from another driver, speak to our dedicated team of personal injury solicitors today.

Car Accident Passenger Claim

The driver operating the vehicle has a legal obligation to drive carefully and safely in order to prevent injury to their passengers and minimise the risk of injuring other road users.

Being a passenger you may be able to make a claim against:

  • Uninsured drivers
  • Public transport drivers
  • Drivers you know

There are of course other factors to consider like if the road was in a bad condition causing a crash, if the vehicle has mechanical faults or if a cyclist/ pedestrian acts with negligence and in turn is responsible for causing passenger injuries.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Passenger Car Accident Claim?

Time is of the essence with any personal injury claims, a claim relating to a car accident should generally be started within 3 years of the incident.
