I was a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident. I was injured. What should I do? What claims do I have?
As a passenger in a vehicle, if you were injured in a car accident, you need to bear in mind that you may have the option of recovering from the driver of the car that you were in as well as the driver of the other car involved in the accident, if there was another car involved in the accident. It’s best if you consult with an attorney separate from the driver of the car that you were in, just in case there is a claim against that driver. That might make you a little uncomfortable to hear, because the person you were riding with might be a friend, or might be a co-worker, or maybe family. The important thing to keep in mind is that you will be pursuing a claim against their insurance company, not against them personally. That’s why it’s a good idea if you consult with an attorney separately from the driver of the car that you were in.
