A passenger involved in a car accident can suffer severe or harmful injuries as a result of the negligence of the driver, the driver of the other vehicle, or both. They have no control over the direction of the vehicle, and often times have little or no warning in order to brace themselves immediately before the impact. In fact, it is quite common for the passengers of the automobile to suffer damages greater than any of the drivers.
Consequently, the law provides greater legal protection for passengers of a traffic accident. This is due to the fact that liability or fault is almost never an issue as fault generally falls on the shoulder of the drivers. Therefore, a passenger may file an injury claim against:
1. The insurance for the driver of the car you were riding in
2. The insurance of the other car involved
3. Their own insurance
Almost all insurance policies cover injuries sustained to a passenger of a vehicle in an automobile crash. However, the insurance industry has become adept at limiting or even denying passenger injury claims. That is why many times, these victims are left to assume the costs associated with the accident, including medical bills, lost wages, or hospital visit costs out of their own pocket. Even worse, most adjusters will tell you that you are simply not entitled to other forms of compensation, such as pain and suffering, or loss of earnings capacity.
