When Are You Liable for Another Driver’s Car Accident?

February 8th, 2019

When it comes to car accidents, determining which driver is responsible or at fault for the accident is one of the biggest hurdles. Typically, the driver who was negligent and did not use reasonable caution and care while driving is liable for the accident. However, there are situations where a person who was not driving the vehicle at the time of the accident can be held liable for the accident.

Here are some of the scenarios in which the non-driving person can be held liable for an accident:

  1. When the driver who caused the accident is an employee: When an employee drives a company car and has an accident, the employer is responsible by law for the accident and is liable for all the injuries and damages incurred as a result of the accident.
  2. When the car owner gave permission for driving: Car owners will be held responsible for negligent driving by anyone they give permission to use the vehicle.
  3. When parents allow their children to use the car: In this case, there are a handful of laws that dictate liability, such as the family purpose doctrine. Under this doctrine, the owner of the vehicle is liable for negligent driving by any family member who uses it. Another cause for liability is negligent entrustment. This occurs when a parent permits a minor child to use the family vehicle even though they know or should have known that the child is reckless, inexperienced or incompetent.
  • Negligent entrustment also applies outside of the parent/child relationship, including lending your car to a person who is:
    • Intoxicated
    • Unlicensed or underage
    • Inexperienced
    • Elderly
    • Previously reckless

    Can I Get Compensation as a Passenger in a Car Accident?

    January 8th, 2019

    car accidents

    If you were injured as a passenger in a car accident, there are a few different ways to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages.

    File a Claim Against the Driver

    If you were injured as a passenger, you can file a claim against the driver because your driver’s insurance company is liable for compensating you. As a passenger, the driver whose car you were in is responsible for your safety. If the driver’s negligence caused the accident, he or she is responsible for using their insurance coverage to help you cover any accident-related damages.

    File a Claim Against the Other Driver

    If the driver of the other car was partially at fault for the crash, you can file a claim against the other driver. However, you will need to prove the other driver was at fault.

    Sue the Driver for Extra Coverage

    If you sustain serious injuries, you can consider suing the drivers involved in the accident for additional compensation. Taking legal action against multiple drivers may take longer to resolve your case. However, with the right car accident attorney by your side, you can obtain the compensation you deserve.

    If you have been injured as a passenger in a car accident, it is imperative to speak with a knowledgeable and experienced car accident lawyer to help you choose the path that’s best for you.
