Common passenger injuries
Passenger injuries can be severe. The driver may be more protected against injury based on the design of the automobile. Some common passenger injuries include:
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Organ damage
- Facial injury caused by broken glass
- Hand or eye injuries
If you were injured as a passenger, you may have a claim against the driver of the vehicle you were riding in as well as any other vehicles involved in the accident.
Many passengers who witness the serious injury or death of a loved one frequently experience psychological injuries even if they were not hurt.
In some cases, the driver may make a claim that the passenger distracted the driver or contributed to the car's reckless operation and shares responsibility for the accident.
In accidents that involve more than two vehicles, a passenger may have a claim of negligence against more than one vehicle operator depending on the degree of liability.
Passenger injuries can be painful, debilitating and life changing. Dealing with insurance companies can be overwhelming. Call our experts today.
