Were you recently injured as a passenger in an auto accident? Are you confused about your rights or reluctant to bring a claim because a family member or friend was driving? Our Schuylkill County personal injury lawyer at The Law Offices of Anthony Urban, P.C. has represented many car accident passengers throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. We have the skill and ability to address the unique legal issues and the sensitive matter of "suing" someone you know.
Passengers who suffer injury are covered in most scenarios. Our knowledgeable legal team can determine what remedies are available in your specific case. Clients often tell us that they don't want to sue their friend, parent, or relative. It is important to remember that this type of suit is essentially a claim against the driver's insurance, not a lawsuit against that person or his/her personal assets. At a minimum, you may need that driver's insurance to cover your medical bills and ongoing medical care.
You may be able to collect compensation even if:
By law, you are also entitled to seek compensation for lost wages and future earnings, plus damages for any permanent disability, unpaid medical bills, and your pain and suffering if you enjoy “full tort” status. Passengers often suffer different injuries than drivers, especially in older cars. Some older cars do not have dual air bags in the front seat, resulting in serious injuries to the head, face, and neck to passengers who strike the dashboard or windshield.
We work with clients and doctors to understand the extent of injuries and the long-term needs. Our Schuylkill County personal injury attorney would like to offer a free consultation to discuss your case, including home or hospital visits.
