Legal Rights of Passengers Injured in Car Accidents
A passenger injured in an auto accident is entitled to pursue a cause of action against all negligent parties that caused or contributed to their injuries. This means that a passenger can look to both the driver of the vehicle as well as the operators of other vehicles that were involved in the collision to recover damages for their injuries. In cases with significant injury or surgery is needed, it may be necessary to review the applicable insurance coverage for all parties to determine how to maximize the amount of insurance coverage available you to cover your medical bills following an accident.
Role of Auto Insurance In Car Passenger Injury Claims
The majority of passengers are family members or friends with the driver of the vehicle. As a result, many seriously injured passengers are hesitant to pursue a claim with the driver’s insurance carrier– let alone file a lawsuit against that person who was operating the vehicle involved in the collision. Unfortunately, many passengers have to weigh the tough choice of the need to cover medical expenses and having to bring against someone they know.
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.
