In automobile accidents, passengers have more rights than the driver. The injured passenger may have rights while the driver has none. If a driver is at fault for an accident, this doesn’t bar you from recovering as a passenger. You may sue the other driver, the driver of the car you were riding in, or both.
Passengers Recovering Medical Expenses and Other Damages
The right to sue both drivers is especially important when you have suffered severe injuries that result in damages (such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering) that are higher than the insurance policy limits of each driver. In such a situation, you could sue both drivers and get full compensation for your damages, or at least the maximum allowed under both insurance policies. Talk with an experienced accident attorney to learn more.
