Car Passenger Injuries Put Years of Experience in Your Corner
When a passenger is injured in a car crash, they have the legal option of pursuing compensation by filing a personal injury claim. In many cases, these lawsuits are successful so long as the plaintiff can accurately determine the negligent party and prove their injuries are a result of the accident.
However, there may be complications if the passenger is related to the liable party.
Before you file a claim, it’s important to seek legal counsel from an experienced lawyer. At Sam C. Mitchell & Associates, our car passenger injuries attorneys in Illinois can review your case, thoroughly explain your legal options, and help you file a claim.
We work on a contingency fee basis, so you can pursue justice and damages without worrying about the cost—you don’t pay our firm unless we win.
How Passenger Auto Accident Claims Work
Car accidents often lead to injuries that require intensive medical care. Victims may be saddled with expensive medical bills and may suffer other injury-related financial losses. Sometimes, even their jobs are affected because they can’t perform their regular duties.
If you’ve been injured in an accident as a passenger, you can file a claim against the liable driver’s insurance policy to recoup your losses. However, in certain circumstances, an insurance policy may not provide financial damages if you are directly related to the negligent driver.
Liability coverage provides for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
It’s important to discuss your specific circumstances with an attorney. You may need to file a third-party insurance claim or even multiple claims to recover the damages your injuries warrant.
