Injury compensation has been paid to two passengers who sustained whiplash injuries in a Surrey car accident.
The whiplash injury claimants, an 18-year-old psychology student and his 19-year-old partner, made the claims against the insurance policy of the 18-year-old's father, who admitted liability for the incident, which happened when he inadvertently drove into a bridge pylon.
A London-based personal injury solicitor said that it is not unusual for compensation claims to be made against friends and family members.
YouClaim's whiplash injury claims specialist comments, "It is always worth remembering that when a passenger undertakes litigation against a driver who is a friend or family member, it is that person's insurance company which pays out on the claim.
"As such, deserving claimants should not be worried about hitting the pockets of friends of family members – litigation in these circumstances need not be contentious."
