Passenger Accident Claims

Do you want an expert solicitor to help you make passenger accident claims after a road accident?

If you were a passenger in a road traffic accident, it is very likely that you were injured and that you are entitled to claim compensation.

Donoghue Solicitors is an award-winning law firm specialising in passenger accident claims. We are experts at all aspects of personal injury law, and have no win no fee lawyers ready and waiting to help you claim compensation for your passenger claims.

To start your claim contact us today by calling 08000 124 246 or complete the online form on this page.

What sort of passenger claims can I make?

Injured passengers are entitled to compensation in most circumstances involving motorised vehicles.

Donoghue Solicitors represents passengers in two situations:

  1. if you were injured while riding in a motor vehicle (other than a motorcycle). We can help if your claim is worth more than £5,000 for personal injuries, and/ or more than £10,000 overall. Look at our free compensation calculator to get an idea about how much your claim is worth. Sadly, a change in the law means that we can no longer help with lower value personal injury claims suffered by passengers in motor vehicles (other than a motorcycle, see 2. below). These claims include “whiplash” injuries which last fewer than two years. Read the blog post: How the whiplash reforms could affect you to find out why.
  2. if you were hurt as a motorcycle pillion or sidecar passenger. The change in the law described above does not apply. We can still help if your claim is worth less than £5,000 for personal injuries, and/or £10,000 overall. Contact us to discuss your claim.

Every claim is different, and personal injury law can be complicated. You should speak to one of our expert no win no fee lawyers to see if you are eligible to pursue your passenger accident claims before going any further.

How much does it cost to make passenger accident claims?

If you instruct Donoghue Solicitors, we guarantee that you will not pay any fees throughout your case, and as we act on a ‘no win no fee’ basis where appropriate, we assure you there is no financial risk to you in the unlikely event you do not win your case*.

What can passengers claim in a road traffic accident?

Innocent accident victims involved in road traffic accidents are entitled to be compensated as if the accident did not happen. This means that, as far as possible, the courts will try and put them in the same financial position as before. Of course, they cannot give you back your health, so compensation for personal injury claims is made by paying money over. Other items, such as lost earnings, out of pocket expenses, private medical treatment etc. can be calculated and paid.

Rest assured our no win no fee lawyers will work with you to ensure that you receive all that you are entitled to, and the maximum compensation for your injuries.
