Pillion passengers have no control over the bike and will therefore almost certainly be able to bring a successful claim against the car driver involved or the driver of the bike. You should have been given an appropriate helmet to wear; the driver should have made sure your feet could reach the footrests and that the pillion seat was secure and fit for purpose and a means of communicating whilst in transit should have been agreed. If the driver has failed you in any of these respects and has caused injury then you can make a claim for compensation against him and his insurance company will pay any successful claim.
Pillion passenger compensation claims are therefore often more straightforward than other motorcycle accident claims.
