There is often some ambiguity as to whether passengers can claim when they have been injured in an accident that was their driver’s fault. The simple answer is, they can. When you are a passenger in a vehicle you are an “innocent party.” This means that whether you were in a vehicle that was not at fault for an accident, or that the driver of your vehicle caused the collision, you can still claim compensation. Just because the vehicle you were in was responsible for the accident does not preclude you from making a claim. This is why a passenger can always claim compensation provided that they suffered injury as a result of the collision, whether this is a claim directed to the third party or their driver’s own insurance, Khan Law can assist.
