Who Can Claim?
To claim compensation, you must be able to show that you were not wholly responsible for the accident or that the accident was due at least partly to negligence on the other driver/motorist. Passengers will usually have a 100% claim unless the accident occurred through no fault of the driver as in the case of an animal suddenly entering the road or the potholes etc. You would also then have to establish that the injuries you sustained were serious and/or impacted negatively on your daily living and/or work (business or occupation)
