What are YOUR RIGHTS AS A PASSENGER in a Motor Vehicle Accident

  • File a Claim against the Driver’s Insurance

If the driver who was driving the vehicle that you were a passenger in were at least in part at fault for causing the motor vehicle accident, you have the legal right to file the claim against the driver’s insurance policy. This allows the passenger to receive financial compensation for the injuries that he or she incurred in the accident.

  • Filing a Claim against the Other Driver’s Insurance

If the other driver is at fault, you can pursue a claim against the other driver’s insurance coverage.  If that other driver is partially at fault then you can pursue a claim against both his insurance and the insurance carrier of the vehicle in which you occupied.  

  • Through your own insurance for uninsured or uninsured motorist coverage

If the at fault driver or drivers are uninsured or underinsured to compensate you for your injuries, then you have the right to file a claim against your own insurance company.  If this is for underinsured motorist coverage, then this claim would be in addition to claims brought against one or both at fault drivers.   For a more detailed discussion of your underinsured and underinsured motorist coverage see our blog dedicated to this topic.  As well as contact us at 732-514-6635.
