If you were injured in a car accident while travelling as a passenger you are automatically entitled to compensation.

The insurance company of the at fault driver will compensate you for any injuries sustained, loss of earnings and any ongoing medical needs which have arisen.

What Compensation Am I Entitled To

The most common type of injury caused from a car accident is whiplash (sore neck), something which is not instantly felt but can become very serious during the next few weeks after the accident. The average payout for whiplash is £2500.

Even if you did not attend your doctor with regards to any injury you will still be entitled to compensation.
