Injured Passengers From Car Accidents

If you’re a passenger that’s in a car accident, you can be compensated for your losses. Passengers in car accidents are often seriously injured. This can result in lost wages, disabilities, as well as noneconomic damages like pain and suffering.

Injured passengers in North Carolina should seek the counsel of an experienced car accident lawyer. At DeMayo Law Offices, our dedicated team of legal professionals has more than 150 years of combined experience. We’ve helped thousands of injured people, and we may be able to help you too.

Compensation Process for Injured Passengers

To collect compensation, an injured passenger must make a claim against an at-fault driver’s insurance policy.

Like all personal injury claims, liability or fault must be proven. North Carolina practices contributory negligence rules, which prohibit an injured party from collecting compensation if they’re responsible (to any degree) for their injury. However, passengers aren’t typically liable for their injuries since they aren’t behind the wheel.

Filing an injury claim as a passenger may involve one or more responsible parties. For example, the passenger’s driver, as well as another driver, could share liability for the crash—this would require two separate claims. In some cases, liability may belong to a car or product manufacturer.

Insurance companies aren’t eager to pay out passengers; they also know that injured passengers are often friends or family of the at-fault driver. However, compensation will not harm a friend or family member’s insurance coverage. Don’t let an insurance adjuster undermine the compensation you may be entitled to!

Filing a car accident claim can be a difficult and complicated process. An experienced car accident lawyer can guide you through the process helping to ensure no insurance money is left on the table.
