PASSENGER ACCIDENT SOLICITOR - INJURY COMPENSATION CLAIMSOLICITORS HELPLINE: ☎ 0844 332 0553
Our passenger accident solicitors deal with compensation claims using the risk free no win no fee scheme. There is a common misconception in regards to passenger accident claims that you cannot sue your own driver, that is the driver of the vehicle in which you are travelling but that is simply not the case. If your driver has been negligent or has contributed to the cause of the accident then that person is liable to pay you damages for personal injury even if the driver is your spouse, child or parent - it does not matter - their insurers must still pay compensation.
There are almost no circumstances in which a passenger accident solicitor cannot claim damages from one or all of the drivers involved and even in multiple vehicle collisions where liability is initially far from clear, passenger accident compensation claims are almost always successful. It should be noted however that the Motor Insurers Bureau which pays compensation to the victims of uninsured drivers will consider the passengers knowledge of the lack of a drivers insurance as a relevant factor and passengers who deliberately distract a driver and cause an accident may find it difficult to establish negligence against a driver who may in any event sue that passenger for compensation.
Passenger Accident Accident Solicitors
Our passenger accident solicitors operate the no win no fee scheme otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement. No legal charge is payable unless the legal case is won and the client obtains an award of compensation. In the event that the legal claim is lost there is no charge made to the client. If you would like free advice on motor accident claims from an accredited expert solicitor just use the helpline or complete the contact form and a member of the Law Society panel of personal injury experts will speak to you on the telephone with no further obligation.
