PERSONAL INJURY I CAR ACCIDENTS I FAQ CAR ACCIDENTS I FREQUENTLY ASKED CAR ACCIDENT QUESTIONS – Can I Sue a Negligent Driver in a Car Accident, if I was a Passenger at the Time?
May 18, 2020
In our series of blogs titled “FAQs Car Accident” or “Frequently Asked Car Accident Questions”, a common question posed to our Car Accident Attorneys include: “Can I Sue the Driver of the Vehicle if I am a Passenger”? In other words, “If I was a Passenger in a Vehicle, can I sue the At-Fault Driver”?
In short, if you were a passenger in a vehicle during a car accident and sustained injuries, you can assert a claim. As a passenger in a car accident you can assert a claim against the at-fault driver regardless if you were a passenger in the negligent driver’s car or the non-fault driver’s vehicle. Further, if the at-fault driver was not sufficiently insured at the time of the motor vehicle collision, you may assert a claim under your own uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.
If sustained injuries in a car accident, whether a pedestrian, driver or passenger, then you can recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering as well as other out-of-pocket costs.
