Passenger Injuries

If you were a passenger in an accident involving a car, bus, taxi or motorcycle, and, as in the majority of passenger injury cases, it was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation for any injuries you have suffered.

How do I claim compensation?

Contact our personal injury experts and we will guide you through the whole process.

Drivers of vehicles have a duty of care to ensure your safety as a passenger, as do other road users.  Even if the driver was a family member or friend, you can still make a claim as the driver’s liability for your accident will be covered by insurance.

Public transport providers are also required to have insurance which covers injuries caused to passengers, so please contact us if you’ve been injured on a bus, tram, coach or taxi.

What if I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt during the accident?

You may still be entitled to claim compensation so contact us as soon as possible so that we can discuss your case.

What can I claim?

You may be able to claim:

  • General damages: these cover physical pain and suffering, but can also include emotional pain such as depression which is a result of the injury.
  • Special damages: these cover things such as loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses, including medical expenses.

The amount of compensation you’ll win will depend on the severity of your injuries and the extent of your losses.

What should I do next?

Contact our road accident specialists now to discuss making a no win/no fee personal injury claim.  Our Sheffield Solicitors will guide you through the whole process and make sure that you receive the best compensation possible.
