Having a car accident can completely change the way you live your life. The emotional fallout from being involved in such an accident can leave you terrified of travelling on the roads and the physical injuries you sustain can lead to a significant period of time off work and an inability to live the same active life you lived prior to the crash.
Tragically, the number of car accidents seen on Britain’s roads is increasing rather than falling. The failure of some careless drivers to focus on the road places the drivers and passengers of other vehicles at enormous risk. If you are injured as a passenger, you cannot be blamed for any crash you are involved in. Even if the crash was fairly small and your injuries are fairly treatable, you could still claim accident compensation.
Generally speaking, passengers have greater protection during accidents than driver. Where the accident was caused by the driver of the other car involved, their insurer will usually settle the insurance and if the driver of the car you were travelling in was to blame it will be their insurer who compensates you.
Whatever injury you have sustained, from whiplash through to severe head trauma, it is crucial that you start the accident compensation claims process at the earliest opportunity. Not only does this ensure that you don’t miss the claims deadline but is means that you will receive compensation earlier allowing you to focus on recuperating.
