About passenger accidents

We handle claims for passengers who have been injured while riding in all different types of vehicles, but the most common kinds we have come across are:

If you’re travelling in another person’s car or riding pillion on their motorcycle, then they, as well other road users, have a duty of care for you. Similarly, if you are using public transport, the driver and the company that you are travelling with also owe you a duty of care.

9 times out of 10, passengers are the innocent party when an accident occurs - but they are often the ones that suffer serious injuries, substantial pain, distress and inconvenience.

Making a claim for an accident caused by a driver

If you have sustained injuries as a passenger in a vehicle, you should not be afraid of making a claim, even if the driver is a close friend or family member. Parents or guardians can also claim on behalf of a child injured in an accident. As long as the driver has the most basic car insurance cover - third party insurance - he or she will be covered for injuries to other people in their vehicle, damage to other people’s property and injuries to the occupants of other vehicles.

This means that even if you make a claim against someone you know, you should not worry about any possible negative repercussions for them as their insurance provider will be liable to pay any compensation that you receive.

If you suffer an injury as a passenger in a taxi accident and the driver was at fault, you will either be covered by the driver’s own insurance or the insurance of the company that they work for. For accidents on public transport, the company that you are travelling with will be liable for negligence.
