Being involved in a car crash can be a devastating time, where questions and ‘what if?’ are frequently asked. It can shatter your confidence and make you feel scared to get into a car, but beyond the psychological effects it can also affect you in other ways. For example, if you’ve sustained a personal injury you may need to take time off and this can result in loss of wages.
Traffic accidents are on the rise because of the increasing number of vehicles on the road and accidents can happen due to neglecting to pay attention to the road or dangerous driving. Regardless of who was to blame for the accident, as an innocent passenger however, the accident is never your fault. No matter how minor, it’s possible to make a claim for compensation in a passenger personal injury claim.
Passengers tend to be better protected than the drivers. If the driver at fault was driving the other vehicle then compensation can be settled through their car insurance, while if the driver of the vehicle you were in is at fault, the compensation is sorted through the driver’s insurance.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident and received injuries, no matter how minor; whether it’s whiplash or severe back injury, it’s important to start the claims process as soon as possible, before the injuries worsen over time. This way, you won’t be left with no money at a later date.
