Did you know that passengers have a different set of injury claim rights than the drivers of vehicles? This is true because it is extremely rare to blame an accident on a passenger, and a passenger may suffer injury due to the negligence of the other vehicle's driver, the negligence of the driver of the vehicle they were riding in, or sometimes, both.
A passenger can make an injury claim against one or all negligent drivers, even when the injuries are the result of the negligence of the driver of the vehicle that they were riding in. This is true even if the passenger is a spouse, child, relative or friend of the driver. Since the passenger is almost never at fault for the accident, they have a right to make a claim against both people (both insurance companies), if necessary, to make sure they are fully compensated for their loss. Even though they know the person they were riding with, and they may well be a close friend or family member, this does not prevent them from obtaining fair compensation for their injuries â€“ regardless of which driver is at fault.
Keep in mind that if both drivers share some fault for the wreck, each insurance company may try to avert paying their portion of the claim by simply pointing the finger at the other side, and the passenger may have to negotiate with two competing adjusters instead of one.
Palmetto Injury Lawyers can help passengers injured because of accidents involving drunk driving, excessive speed, cell phone use, inattention and negligence, failure to obey traffic signals and signs, failure to adjust to conditions. Palmetto Injury Lawyers is experienced at communicating with insurance adjusters and knowing what should and should not be done in passenger accident cases. More importantly, we do the work for you, including talking to the adjuster, medical records reviewing and collecting, valuating injury claim valuation, negotiating settlements, and if need be, filing a court action to preserve your rights.
