It’s hard to know exactly what steps to follow after an auto accident and even more confusing if you are injured as a passenger in a car accident. Thankfully, as a passenger you have multiple options in order to be compensated for the injuries you sustained in the car accident.
If the driver of the car you were the passenger in and that driver is deemed to be at fault, you can file a claim against that driver. If the other driver is faulted for the accident and you sustain injuries as a passenger, you can file a claim against the other driver’s insurance policy. Filing a claim is simple especially with the help of an auto accident attorney. Be sure to have a medical professional examine you and seek treatment shortly after the accident. As a passenger, your medical expenses are paid for by the driver’s medical portion of their coverage policy.
