Legal Options of a Passenger Injured in a Car Accident

Were you a passenger injured in a car accident? This can be a confusing experience especially if you do not know where to start. The situation is further complicated if the drivers involved cannot agree who is at fault.

Were you a passenger injured in a car accident? This can be a confusing experience especially if you do not know where to start. The situation is further complicated if the drivers involved cannot agree who is at fault. In such a case, you may have to pay for your own medical bills from your pocket. However, a personal injury lawyer can make an otherwise complicated case much smoother. The first course of action is to ascertain the party liable.

Determining the Party at Fault

If you are a passenger injured in a car accident and drivers involved cannot agree on who was at fault, then you should consider seeking legal consultation. Such situations can be confusing especially if both parties were at fault. Again, the insurance companies will try to apportion more blame to the insurance company of the other party. This means that you do not receive compensation for your injuries in good time. Complicated cases can also drag for a long time. Our personal injury lawyers will move in to investigate the matter and establish who is at fault. Once this is established, we will help you sue for the damages incurred.

Can the passenger injured in a car accident be at fault?

In most injury cases, the drivers involved in the accident are at fault. However, there are instances when it can be argued that you were at fault or you had knowledge of the risk involved. For instance, if you have been to a party with your friends and you all get drunk. Supposing you choose to enter the car knowing well that the driver is still under the influence of alcohol. In such as case, it can be argued that you understood the risk. As the passenger in the car accident, you can still receive compensation. However, the amount may be less than what you would have received if you were partly to blame.
