Motor vehicle accidents are rarely, if ever, anything but an unsettling, unpleasant experience. They can be especially frightening for passengers who may have a claim for damages if they suffer any ensuing harm. You have legal rights as a passenger in a motor vehicle accident. The attorneys and staff at H. Lehman Franklin, P.C. have handled these types of claims and offer the value of years of experience in providing important intangibles, as well as excellent legal representation, at a difficult time.
Perhaps each driver involved in the accident was at-fault. It’s almost a foregone conclusion that a passenger of any of the vehicles involved was not at-fault in the accident. Thus, the success of any claims by an injured passenger will depend on proving that, at least, one of the drivers caused the accident.
An injured passenger must prove the negligence of an at-fault driver to prevail on a damages claim. Further, that such negligence caused the accident and any ensuing injuries. Passengers injured in an accident can recover lost earnings, future lost earnings if the injury is chronic, medical expenses, and damages for pain and suffering.
Injured passengers must typically deal with numerous insurance companies after an accident. These include the passenger’s insurance carrier, as well as the companies of all of the drivers involved in the crash. Injured passengers cannot rely upon and trust their insurance company to fully reimburse them for injuries. An experienced motor vehicle accident attorney can provide the necessary and important expertise to help any party injured in an accident receive full and fair compensation.
If you have suffered any type of injury as a passenger in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Protect your rights! Contact H.
