Filing a Claim as an Injured Passenger

Passengers who are injured in car, truck, and commercial vehicle accidents 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:

  • The driver is a member of your family
  • The driver was at fault for the accident
  • The driver did not have insurance
  • You were not wearing a seat belt
  • You were riding in the back of a pickup
