Were you recently a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in an accident? Were you injured and feel that you should be compensated? You have the right to seek payment from the insurance company covering the vehicle in which you were a passenger.
The state in which you live will greatly determine how you proceed. It is usually best to hire a personal injury attorney with experience in this area.
In Massachusetts, for example, every registered vehicle must carry compulsory personal injury protection. With this, medical bills are submitted to the auto insurance company of the car that hit you. From there, they are expected to pay the first $2k in medical bills. Those who don’t have medical insurance can expect to receive another $6k to cover additional bills and related expenses.
Many people think that being a passenger in a vehicle means that they lose all their rights. Nothing could be further from the truth. Just because you weren’t driving does not mean you are responsible for paying all your medical bills.
For more help, contact a qualified personal injury attorney. They can better explain the law as well as your rights as a passenger.
