When you are the passenger in the car no matter whom the driver is the responsibility will always fall on the person behind the wheel in the case of an accident. A passenger cannot control what the drivers next move might be therefore, hold no responsibility for the outcome of the accident even if the driver of their car was to be found liable. As a passenger, you have laws to follow as well such as wearing a seatbelt while the car is in motion and making sure you are not distracting the driver. On the off chance that you are a passenger that is associated with a mishap, it’s possible that you can recoup the greater part of your expenses, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages during recovery time
- Future medical expenses such as rehab or therapy
- Pain and suffering
As a passenger, you have the same rights regardless of which driver caused the mishap.
