I suffered injuries as the passenger in a car accident can I file a claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Yes. Passengers involved in car accidents can recover from the at-fault driver. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case that may be the driver of the vehicle you were in or the driver of another vehicle.  Some injured parties do not understand that even when they are passengers they have the standing, of the right to sue, the driver of the vehicle and the driver of another vehicle for their injuries. At times friends are reluctant to sue each other however personal injury liability is a matter of law, not friendship. If you have been injured in a car accident, contact a law firm with experience in these sensitive matters to help you recover the damages you deserve.
