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.
