Injured Car Passengers in Accident Cases
As a result of the errors made both by the driver of the vehicle as well as other vehicles on the road, passengers can be seriously injured– through no fault of their own. The law readily accepts that a passenger in a car is incapable of causing or preventing an accident and as a result passenger are truly free from causing almost any type of traffic accident.
Legal rights of Passengers Injured in Car Accidents
Role of auto insurance in car passenger injury claims
Despite the initial awkwardness of filing a claim against a relative or good friend, the reality is that most motor vehicle claims are paid directly by the insurance company for the driver or owner of the vehicle and not out of the driver’s personal assets. As a party who caused an accident, the driver’s insurance company has a contractual obligation to pay for all crash-related injuries that a passenger suffered — regardless of their relationship with the driver. Consequently, as strange as it may sound, a child/passenger in a car accident caused by a parent has a right to recover damages for their injuries including medical expenses, pain and suffering as well as lost wages. Similarly, one spouse has a right to recover damages from the other spouse if their negligence caused an accident.
