In the majority of accidents a passenger is an innocent party in the accident so is in a strong legal position to make a compensation claim. As a passenger the driver of your vehicle has a duty of care to ensure your safety by driving responsibly, in the exact same way that all other road users have a duty of care.
Limitations for Passenger Claim - 3 Years Claiming period for most Personal Injury Claims
In order to pursue a passenger accident claim you must make it within a time period of 3 years. Any claims exceeding this time limit will have to be discussed with a solicitor before they can actually pursue it. Compare Compensation Claims provides free assessments so that you, the client, can benefit from our services and are put in the right direction with the right mind-set to make a compensation claim.
All enquiries and car accident claim(s) are based on non-fault accidents. Compensation can only be sought if a third party is liable. Basically if someone (or something) else was, at least in part, responsible for your injury then you have a possible personal injury claim.
One key factor to remember is that any passenger, in any vehicle, may it be in a vehicle at fault or not for an accident, can proceed with making a passenger compensation claim within the 3 year period. Passengers are innocent victims in a vehicle that unfortunately has been involved in a road traffic accident.
If the driver of the vehicle is uninsured, you would still be able to make a passenger compensation claim to the Motor Insurers Bureau, unless you knew the driver was not insured before the accident.
If you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, you may still be entitled to make a claim for compensation, but the amount of compensation awarded may be reduced as a result of this.
What to do if you are claiming for Passenger Compensation after a Road Traffic Accident
Understand the requirements to be met when making a passenger accident claim, the restrictions, limitations, and the claim process itself. Compare Compensation Claims has various pages within its site to help you understand the legalities and give you accident claim advice on different issues.
The most important thing to do immediately is to identify if anyone is injured. If so, the police and medical services must be called immediately and before any of the vehicles are moved. If attending, the police will make detailed notes of what happened. These can be called in evidence if required at a later date.
In the event that the driver of your vehicle is subsequently found to be responsible for the accident, it will become important that you have your own evidence and recollection of what happened.
- obtain the insurance details from other driver(s) involved
- record the make and registration of the other vehicle(s)
- make a note of the time and date of the accident, and the weather conditions at the time
- try to take photographs of the scene
- try to obtain the names and addresses of any witnesses, even if they were travelling in one of the other vehicles involved
- make a note of any circumstances leading up to the accident which you can remember (time can cloud your recollection quite quickly, and written evidence at the time will aid recall later)
You should also obtain details of the driver of the vehicle in which you were travelling, including full details of the vehicle and insurance, even if you are not sure at the time who was responsible for causing the accident.
We have a more detailed page dedicated to car accident claim advice on issues such as what to do at the scene of the accident and what precautions to take. Please pay your attention to our Accident Helpline page for further information.
After the accident, if you require medical treatment, keep a record of any appointments and expenses such as travelling to hospital, or medication you need to take. Keep a note of any special support you need from your family and friends, such as help with housekeeping and shopping, driving to hospital appointments. You should also keep documentary evidence of any other losses or expenses that you incur which are as a result of your injuries.

Once the car accident claim is submitted simply wait for your chosen team of professionals to contact you. The solicitors or claim specialists will process your claim and contact you as soon as your details are received.

In today’s world ones word to one another is not enough. Keep evidence of your injury related expenses and other losses, including loss of earnings, to give your car accident claim more creditability. It will highly increase your chances of all recoveries.
Sit back and let your chosen team of personal injury lawyers work for you. Remember you’re the boss so you tell them what to do and what compensation to seek. This does not mean that the team of solicitors or claim specialists will not already know which direction to take or what they need to recover and acquire, from the liable party, for the car accident claim.
Seek expert guidance and treatment for any injuries sustained, remembering to keep all records to submit in with the passenger compensation claim. Your chosen personal injury lawyers or solicitors will compile a file for your claim which will also contain these records.
Compare Compensation Claims recommends that you treat or get expert medical advice from professionals as soon as possible. Do not assume that an injury will cure itself over night or over a few days. To avoid further damage or seriousness please do not take any injury lightly because some injuries can worsen over time which could be fatal especially when head injury is concerned. Act promptly and accordingly for your own best interest.
Where passenger accident claim(s) are concerned the most common injury that can occur is whiplash. The exact injury mechanism that causes whiplash injuries is unknown. A whiplash injury may be the result of impulsive stretching of the spine, mainly the ligament, anterior longitudinal ligament, which is stretched or torn, as the head snaps forward and then back again causing a whiplash injury.
Use our Claim Indicator to put an estimate value, minimum to maximum, on the compensation you are entitled to for your personal injury.
Your right for applying Passenger Compensation Claim
