If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a road traffic accident which was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you are a pedestrian, a motor cyclist, a pedal cyclist, a driver, or a passenger your personal injury compensation claim would be against the insurer of the driver responsible for your injuries. Even if the driver was not insured you could still claim compensation for your personal injuries. To find out how we can help you, please complete our free online Enquiry Form.
The most common type of injury resulting from a road accident is whiplash to the neck, back and shoulder. However a wide range of injuries can be suffered from minor soft tissue injuries such as bruising, strains, sprains, stiffness and soreness to more serious injuries such as broken bones, scarring and head injuries.
Often road traffic accidents are caused by the careless or negligent driving of a motorist. Failure to stop or give-way and obey traffic lights and street signage, are just some examples of how a road traffic accident might occur.
Road traffic accidents can involve just about any road user, including cars, motorbikes, cyclists, trucks, buses, taxi drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Generally, as a passenger you are always entitled to make a claim for personal injuries against the driver’s insurer. It does not matter whether the driver is your husband, wife, family relative or friend.
