Road traffic accidents are very common, The difference between a driver injury and a passenger injury is that it would be very unlikely that a passenger would ever be found to be anything other than an innocent party.

Types of injuries suffered by Passengers in Road Accidents
From minor whiplash to broken bones, burns, lacerations, head injuries, spinal injuries and even amputations, passenger injuries vary from minor injuries to fatalities.
Passengers can help to prevent or minimise injuries by wearing their seat belts at all times whether in the front or back of the vehicle. They should also refrain from distracting the driver and if riding as a pillion passenger on a motorcycle should wear all of the recommended safety wear such as a helmet, leathers, boots and gloves.
The Law on Seat Belts
In private cars the law states that every person over the age of 14 has to wear an adult seat belt if it is available regardless of whether they are travelling in the front or back of the vehicle. Every passenger over the age of 14 is responsible for ensuring they are wearing their seat belt and that it is properly adjusted.
Children under the age of 14 must either wear a child restraint or use the adult seat belt depending on their exact age and height. There are very few exceptions to these rules.
