When you are driving and another car hits you, you may know that you may be able to seek legal compensation for your injuries. However, sometimes people do not realize that you have rights as a car passenger, too. If you are a passenger and are involved in a car accident in which you are injured, you can also potentially seek compensation for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, one or both drivers may have paid a role in the corresponding injuries. Either way, the passenger may be able to seek compensation for any injuries sustained in the crash.
Sometimes, settling these passenger claims can be confusing and time-consuming. When multiple cars are involved, it can become even more complicated. That is why it is important to seek legal advice, in order to make sure that the injured party's case is being properly handled.
