Passenger Accident Injuries

There are many ways in which you could be injured as a passenger. Some common injuries include: 

  • Whiplash 
  • Broken bones
  • Trauma 
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Facial disfigurement injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Limb amputation

The effects and impact of these injuries will vary from person to person depending upon the severity. The most serious kinds of accidents can cause a high level of stress for victims and their families. If you have been unable to return to work due to your injuries, then you can likely recover any current or future financial losses relating to this impact upon your life. If you have extra medical costs such as physiotherapy sessions, it is usually possible to get money to cover this sort of treatment under compensation.

While this might not be serious, it can often prevent you from doing a lot of physical activities and it can sometimes cause psychological distress due to the pain. Therefore, psychological distress will also be brought into account when calculating the amount of compensation, you are owed. 

On the higher end of the injury scale, you may have become paralysed due to your accident. You might need constant care, either from a professional or a family member and you may need adjustments to be made to your home in order for you to continue living there. Compensation will take into account how your injuries have impacted upon your quality of life and ability to function.
