When making a car passenger compensation claims, it is important to obtain as many details surrounding the accident as possible. These would include a description of the car accident, the driver details, car registration number, the driver’s insurance details, and a police reference number if they attended the scene of the accident, also any witness details if possible.

As a result of being injured as a passenger in a car accident, in order to make a claim for compensation, the injuries suffered must have been diagnosed by a doctor.
The most common car passenger compensation claims we handle are for neck and shoulder whiplash injuries, lower back pain and soft tissue damage from when the seat belt locks to save a more severe injury, with the passenger going through the windscreen. In addition, torn pulled and stretched tendons, ligaments and muscles, broken bones and dislocations are often injuries which are claimed for.
Although seat belts can cause severe bruising to passengers in a car accident, they save many lives each year and should be worn on each journey, as the law states. In the event of a car passenger not wearing a seat belt and suffering an injury in an accident, a claim for compensation can still be made; however, the compensation will be reduced by 25%.
Some of the most common reasons for passenger injuries from a car accident are from being hit in the rear by another vehicle which has failed to stop in time. These are often referred to as a rear end shunt accident. In many of these cases, the driver of the car behind causing the accident has not been paying full attention to the road as they were using a mobile phone, eating, drinking, chatting or speeding.
In all cases maximum car passenger injury compensation will be fought for by our specialist passenger claims solicitors.
