Can I claim if the driver was intoxicated?

If the driver of the car you were travelling in was drunk, you may still be able to claim compensation. Even if you knew the driver was drunk when you agreed to get into the car, the driver still has a responsibility to drive safely. However, if you willingly get into a car with a drunk driver, the amount of compensation you receive may be reduced. This is called contributory negligence and will be based on a percentage. Usually, in these cases, contributory negligence is agreed between 15% and 25%, so the compensation you receive will be reduced by this.
