Car Passenger Compensation Claims

When travelling in any vehicle as a passenger, your safety is the responsibility of of the driver of the vehicle you are in or other road users. In the majority of cases, your journey will be smooth and relaxed.

Should an accident occur through the fault of the person driving your vehicle, or the fault of another car driver, our specialist lawyers will cut through the complexities of making a claim, explaining matters in plain and simple language, they will look to establish liability against the responsible party and then negotiate a final settlement for the injuries you have sustained.

Car passenger claim may involve a number of scenarios including (but not limited to):

  1. The car you are travelling in being hit from behind by another vehicle.
  2. The driver of yo vehicle causing the accidents by their negligent driving.
  3. The car you are travelling in being hit by a car emerging from a side road or pulling out when it is unsafe to do so.
  4. A head-on collision caused by either the driver of your vehicle or an oncoming vehicle crossing the centre lines or negligently overtaking another vehicle.
