Lawyer for Passengers Injured in Auto Accidents
If you were a passenger injured in a car accident, you might be wondering, can I sue? Passengers can seek compensation for their injuries regardless of which driver caused the car accident. That means that if the driver of their car caused the accident, the passenger could seek compensation for their injuries. If the driver of the other vehicle involved in the wreck was at fault, the passenger could recover damages for their harm. Making sure that you are fully compensated for your harm can take time. Contacting a personal injury lawyer will help make sure that you are taken care of.

Texas Car Insurance and Your Claim
Texas law requires individuals to have insurance coverage for the accidents that they cause. There is a minimum limit the insurance that drivers are required to carry. That minimum liability insurance will cover repairs and medical expenses, however, in larger accidents, minimum policies aren’t always enough.
Also, many drivers on the road do not have insurance. Uninsured drivers cause approximately $28,000,000,000 in damage every year. Because so many drivers are uninsured or underinsured, meaning they don’t have enough insurance to cover your harm, it is important to purchase UM/UIM coverage through your insurance.
Regardless of whether the other driver is uninsured or insurance is not covering all of your damages, it is important that you take action. Get the medical attention you need. Get the help you need. Chelsie King Garza has helped passengers of car accidents find the most coverage available.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim can Help You, the Passenger Injured in a Car Accident to get the Compensation you Deserve
What happens when the driver of your vehicle caused the accident?
If you were the passenger in the car that caused the wreck, you might be thinking that you are out of luck. However, the driver of your car has a duty to other drivers on the road and you, the passenger. They have the duty to keep a proper look out and operate the vehicle safely. If their neglect caused the wreck and your injuries, you may be able to seek compensation from their insurance.
Can I sue if I’m the passenger in a car that is hit by someone else?
If another driver caused the wreck, for example, rear-ending the car that you were riding in, you may be wondering if they are responsible for your harm as well. We all understand that the at-fault driver would have to pay to fix the car. They may also have to pay for the driver’s injuries, but do they also have to pay for the passenger’s harm? For the most part, the answer is yes.
Car insurance may not guarantee you will get all of the compensation that you deserve. Car accidents can cause minor harm, but passengers can find themselves the victim of a catastrophic injury. Because the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is two years, passengers have a limited window to file a claim. Contacting a personal injury lawyer sooner, rather than later, can make a big difference in the success of your claim.
