Injured Passengers In A Car Accident
How To Pursue Passenger Injury Claims
Car accident injuries are not limited to drivers. Passengers in any of the involved vehicles can also face serious and deadly injuries. In addition, it may comes as a surprise that approaching a personal injury claim for a passenger may not necessarily be the same as for an injured driver.
In one scenario, the injured passenger may need to bring the liability claim against the driver of the car he or she was in. This is often a family member or a friend. These cases need both legal strength to obtain compensation from the insurers and also compassionate support to address the personal relationships involved.
In other cases, a negligent driver caused an accident injuring both the driver and a passenger in another vehicle. In these situations, the injured parties may both be seeking compensation from a finite pool of money, due to insurance coverage limits. This can cause conflicts between the injured driver and passenger, especially if all the injuries are serious and require extensive compensation to cover medical bills and lost wages. Normally in these cases, the accident victims must obtain separate legal counsel to avoid a conflict of interest. The only exception would be when the accident victims are family members — it may be possible and advisable to use a single lawyer for all claims.
