Savannah Passenger Injury Attorneys
How to Pursue Compensation When You Were the Passenger
If you were a passenger involved in a car accident, you can make a claim for personal injuries the same way as if you were the driver. Just like how a driver can recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, passengers are also entitled to recovery for these or any other incurred expenses. In fact, a passenger has greater odds of recovering more damages for their injuries because there are more parties that can be held accountable for his or her injuries.
As with any injury claim, be sure to consult with a personal injury attorney immediately before speaking to insurance adjusters. Remember: Even your own insurance company doesn’t want to pay you any money, no matter how severely you are injured.
When you hire Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys, you’ll have the advantage of working with experienced Savannah car accident lawyers who are fierce advocates and fearless both in and out of the courtroom. We fight for the underdog and refuse to let powerful insurance companies get away with paying you less than you are owed.
Filing a Claim as a Passenger
If you were a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident, you may file a claim against one or both drivers. For example, if both drivers acted negligently and contributed to the accident, it may be worth filing an injury claim against both. However, if the accident was a rear-end collision where one driver was not at all to blame, you will likely only want to file one claim against the at-fault driver.
If the driver of the vehicle you were in was at fault, there’s a good chance he or she was a friend or family member. In this situation, you might be hesitant to take legal action against them. It might not be easy, but it is in your own best interest that you file a claim to ensure you get the compensation you need to recover. After all, the insurance company pays your settlement, not your loved one.
