What if I am injured as a passenger?

If you were a passenger and the car you were in was wrecked, there is a very good chance that the person responsible for your injuries is not yourself. Usually, the party who is at fault is the driver of your vehicle, or maybe another driver on the road who crashed in to the car you were riding in. Sometimes, both parties are liable.

In other cases, the car you were riding in was the at fault vehicle. For example, if the vehicle you were a passenger in has a single car accident with a tree or runs a red light, that would likely be the at fault vehicle. Still, you should be compensated for your injuries.

Even if you were a passenger in a friend’s vehicle, or maybe a parent’s car, it is usually the insurance company you are seeking compensation from.

What to do if you are injured as a passenger

After the crash, if at all possible, obtain insurance information from all drivers involved. Then, speak to an attorney as soon as possible.

In some cases insurance companies will reach out to you to make a recorded statement. While this sounds helpful, your words could be used against you in the future.
