Injured passengers: what to do following a car accident

In a Connecticut car crash, there is often concern about the condition of the drivers involved. However, many vehicles involved in accidents contain passengers who may be injured as well. Depending on where the passenger was seated during the crash and the area of the vehicle where the crash occurred, a passenger may suffer minor cuts and bruises, catastrophic injuries or something in between. If you were a passenger in a vehicle involved in a crash and were injured as a result, it's important to protect your legal rights.

After an accident, there are two key concerns: compensation for damages and insurance coverage. Passengers cannot be held liable for an accident, so negligence does not play a role. The main concern is whether or not a passenger's auto insurance coverage is enough to pay for any medical bills. Some policies have a "med pay" portion that will likely cover some expenses. If the victim does not have this type of coverage, then a personal injury lawyer can help discover other ways to pay for medical expenses.

If you have health insurance, this can also be used to pay for treatment for injuries. Filing insurance claims, however, can be a complicated process. We will do our best to help you every step of the way and attempt to recover as much compensation as possible.

Front-end auto collisions, rear end crashes and side-swipe accidents can all cause serious injuries to both drivers and passengers. Obtaining compensation is important so that you can receive appropriate medical treatment for injuries. Contact a personal injury lawyer who can help you navigate through the complexities of the claim process.
