Car crash compensation after Isle of Wight collision

A two-car road traffic accident, near Newport in the Isle of Wight, may result in car crash compensation claims being made by some of the casualties involved.

Both drivers and one passenger were injured when the vehicles they were travelling in collided with one another in Long Lane.

Fire and rescue teams cut the victims free from their cars. A spokesman for the Isle of Wight Roads Policing Unit said, "I would like to thank our fellow emergency services and all the members of the public who helped at the scene of the collision."

The driver of one of the cars, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to hospital with severe injuries but is not believed to be in a life-threatening condition. Her passenger, another 20-year-old woman, had minor injuries and the driver of the other vehicle, a 39-year-old man, also suffered only minor injuries.

The police is asking any witnesses of the accident to come forward, stating, "Some witnesses have given us useful details and lines of enquiry already, but we remain keen for anyone else with information to contact us."

After police investigations discover which of the motorists is liable for the road traffic accident and personal injuries caused, the driver who is not at fault may choose to claim for car crash compensation.

If both road users are responsible for the incident it is unlikely that either of them will take legal action, however the passenger from the 20-year-old woman's car may decide to claim.
