Can a passenger in a car accident claim from the driver?
If you are a passenger in a car and you have been injured due to the driver driving carelessly and having an accident, you may be able to make a compensation claim for your injuries.
We have helped thousands of people get the compensation they deserve following road traffic accidents. Depending on your injury, you may be entitled to claim compensation ranging from several hundred pounds to many thousands.
Any driver who has passengers in their vehicle has a ‘duty of care’ to ensure that the people in their vehicle are transported safely to their destination. This means that should they put their passengers in danger by driving carelessly, they will be responsible for the consequences of their actions.
In this situation we can arrange legal assistance to help you to pursue a compensation claim from the insurer of the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in. The solicitors we work with will explain everything clearly to you and ensure that any paperwork is kept to the minimum.
If the driver of your vehicle was clearly at-fault, it is very unlikely that you will need to go to court to secure your compensation settlement. Your appointed solicitor will keep you informed at every stage of the process and ensure that you are awarded the best possible settlement for your particular injury.
Anyone is entitled to make a personal injury claim against an at-fault driver for up to 3 years after the date of the accident, provided that they have not already made a claim previously.
