We Know the Legal Issues in Passenger Accidents

Passenger injuries can be legally complicated, but our lawyers will deal with the insurance companies for you. Pennsylvania is a no-fault state. This means that each person’s medical bills and lost wages are covered by their own insurance even if another driver was at fault for the crash.

Commonly, insurance companies provide compensation for:

  • an adult passenger, their own car insurance pays even though they were not driving.
  • a child passenger, their family’s auto policy pays, even if the parent or older sibling who was driving was at fault.
  • a serious car accident, the damages may exceed the policy limits of the victim’s no-fault insurance.

Do I Have to Sue My Friend or Family Member?

If you were riding with a friend, a co-worker or relative when the accident occured, it could be necessary to bring a claim against them to get all of your losses covered. It is understandable to be leery of “suing” someone you know. Keep in mind this is primarily an insurance matter. Typically, we can work out a settlement without having to file a formal lawsuit and point fingers in court.
