Passenger In A Car Accident
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.
