Who do I claim against if I’m a passenger in a car accident?

You can make a claim like you normally would against the CTP insurer of the vehicle at fault.

If you are in this situation and it was a family member or friend who was at fault, you shouldn’t be concerned about making a claim as it’s not made against the driver themselves.

Their insurance premiums may increase; however, this will happen regardless of whether or not you make a claim.
