Passenger Injuries: What are your Options?

Were you a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident? Were you injured? If so, you have the right to seek payment. The insurance provider covering the car in which you were a passenger may be required to pay your bills.

What if the car I was driving in is uninsured? In this case, you may be able to receive lost wages and medical benefits through your personal car insurance policy. Believe it or not, if you don’t own a vehicle you have another option – you can seek payment through the policy of a family member.

Although not the ideal situation, you have the right to file a pain and suffering claim against the at fault party. In order to make this happen, you must meet requirements such as: permanent injuries; medical bills of $2k or more; or a death.

Some people think they have no options when they are simply a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident. They are wrong. If you are injured as a passenger in an automobile accident you have rights.

Do you need help determining how to best move forward in seeking compensation? In this case, speak with a Boston personal injury attorney with experience in this area of the law. With professional help, you can receive all the compensation that you deserve.
