Road Accidents Involving Passengers
When a road traffic accident occurs, it is not only the driver who can suffer a personal injury, passengers of a vehicle are likely to be affected as well. In fact, being injured in a road traffic accident is not uncommon. The Department of Transport recorded 109,046 car casualties in 2016 and 32% of those car occupant casualties were passengers. Just like drivers who suffer injuries due to someone else’s negligence, passengers can also make a claim for being injured in a traffic accident.
