Southampton solicitors who represent passenger claims for road traffic accidents who can act on a no win no fee basis.
All drivers owe a duty of care to all other road users, be it other cars, motorcycles, cyclists, busses or pedestrians. They also have a duty of care to the passengers of other vehicles.
Whether you have been injured in a road traffic accident where the driver of the vehicle you are in is at fault, or another driver is at fault, you may be able to make a passenger claim for the injuries you sustained.
If you are a driver who has been involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, both YOU and YOUR PASSENGERS are entitled to make a personal injury claim against the other driver for the injuries sustained.
If you are a passenger and the driver of the vehicle that you are in is at fault, you are entitled to make a passenger claim against them.
This may be a family member or a friend, but it is key to remember that they hold insurance against such claims.
PLUS, if you are injured by the fault of someone else and this results in loss of earnings, can you really afford not to make a passenger claim?
Public Transport passenger claims
Many people travel daily on trains, buses, trams, coaches etc.
Using this form of transport can carry with it inherent risks, with many passengers having to stand or not wearing a seatbelt. This can mean that if there is a collision or road traffic accident, you are at risk of being thrown around.
If you have been injured as a result of an accident on public transport, it is unlikely that it will be your fault, and you could make a passenger claim for compensation.
Private Taxi passenger claims
If you were a passenger in a private taxi injured in a car accident, you may be able to claim for your injuries and subsequent financial losses.
We can act on a no win no fee basis and offer free initial advice, therefore if you claim is unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny*.
If you are injured in a road traffic accident as a passenger, speak to Swain & Co. Solicitors about the possibility of bringing a passenger claim for personal injury.
