Passenger Fatalities in Gaines
As the result of mistakes made by both the driver of the car as well as other cars on the road, passengers may be critically injured or even killed through no fault of their own. The law holds that a passenger is incapable of preventing or causing a crash and, as a result, passengers are free from blame in causing just about any kind of accident.
A passenger who has been injured in a car crash is entitled to seek a cause of action against every negligent person that caused or contributed to their injuries or death. This means that a passenger or a representative of their estate can look to both the driver of the vehicle as well as the operators of other vehicles that were involved in the collision to recover damages for their injuries.
