Passenger Injuries in New Jersey
If you sustained injuries as a passenger during a car accident, you are entitled to pursue financial compensation for your medical costs and other damages just as an injured driver would be. This is true no matter the cause of your accident, whether it was driver negligence, vehicle defect, or a road hazard.
It is not uncommon for the person liable for the accident to be the driver of the car in which you were riding. For instance, the driver may be a child, parent, spouse, or another relative of the injured passenger. The victim could also be a colleague or a friend. As long as the two parties are not on the same insurance policy, the claim is valid.
Filing a claim of personal injury against a relative or a friend might be uncomfortable but passengers are entitled to seek economic recovery when their injuries were caused by someone’s negligence. In the majority of cases, the negligent driver’s insurance will cover the damages.
Following a serious car accident, victims are hospitalized for several weeks or even months to tend to their injuries. The mental, physical, and financial consequences of collisions are always cumulative. Victims and their families are often forced to suffer through the overwhelming impacts of preventable accidents.
When people sustain injuries in crashes, due to the reckless actions of other drivers, they should contact a car accident attorney as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
