All road users have a duty of care to other road users.  

Anyone injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t their fault can have a viable claim against another party, their insurer, and potentially also against their employer if they were driving in the course of their employment.  

If you were injured whilst a passenger, you were a blameless party to the accident. The first port of call is usually against the insurance policy of the driver of the car you were a passenger in.  This is because their insurance policy should cover you for personal injury or damage sustained in the accident whilst a passenger in the vehicle.  

If you were driving but were not at fault in the accident then you can also make a claim against whichever driver was at fault, which will commonly be dealt with by their insurer.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and suffered injury as a result of someone else's negligence then our lawyers could help you claim compensation.
