Passengers Have Rights After A Car Accident

Please speak with us today to learn how we may help you and your family.

What Can Passengers Do?

In general, injured passengers are covered under the driver’s insurance policy if they are related to the driver. They may also be able to file a claim with their own insurance policy.

If passengers are not related to the driver, they can file a claim against the driver’s insurance. They may also file a claim against any other driver’s insurance if another vehicle was involved.

It’s important to understand that in the vast majority of cases, car accident claims are settled out of court. It’s also important to know that you are not suing your family member or friend; you are seeking compensation from their auto insurance company.

Make Sure You Get The Compensation You Need

Car accident injuries can be severe and may range from broken bones to spinal cord and brain injuries. Injured passengers may need financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages and benefits, and pain and suffering. We can help you work through the insurance issues so you get the amount you need.
