Being involved in a traffic accident can be a very frightening experience. Often, it’s the drivers who are the first to be considered after a road traffic accident but passengers can also suffer the same, and sometimes more severe injuries.
The types of injuries passengers can sustain range from minor whiplash and broken bones to severe head injuries that may require a long period of recovery. When injured you may also suffer financially, due to time off work, or because you become reliant on others to help with simple daily activities.
An injured passenger will have had no liability for the accident and it’s likely that you’ll be able to make a successful personal injury claim against the driver who was at fault.
When estimating the value of personal injury claims, there are usually many factors that need to be considered. You can start with the Compensation Calculator. The main factors to be considered will be the extent and severity of your injuries, and how long it will take you to recover including whether or not you might suffer from ongoing symptoms or chronic pain.
When you are injured the first thing you should do is seek expert medical care so a doctor can determine the extent of your injuries, provide treatment and hopefully ensure a speedy recovery.
You should then contact a personal injury solicitor, selecting a firm that has a professional team of experienced personal injury lawyers.
