Making a passenger in a vehicle claim

Your Legal Friend are specialists when it comes to making car accident compensation claims. We deal with thousands of personal injury compensation claims every year, including many for people injured as passengers in a motor vehicle.

One of the most common misconceptions for passengers in a vehicle that caused an accident is that they are unable to make a claim. This is not correct. As long as you were not the person driving the fault vehicle at the time of the accident, you are entitled to make a claim against the driver of the vehicle as the driver has a duty of care to their passengers.

Many people are understandably apprehensive about making a claim against the driver of the car they were travelling in, particularly when that person is a family member or friend. Your Legal Friend would like to reassure you that, in this situation, any claim against the driver will be covered by their motor insurance policy.

So if you were a passenger in a vehicle and have suffered an injury, we will make it our priority to secure the maximum compensation you deserve. We will help you to claim for the cost of replacing or repairing any items of yours that were damaged as a result of the accident. In addition, if you had any absence from work following the accident, we can help you claim for lost earnings. We can also arrange medical treatment to alleviate some of the most common symptoms that the victims of road traffic accidents complain of, such as whiplash and soft tissue injuries to the neck and back.
