Passengers in a car accident are usually free of fault, unless they did something inherently dangerous such as distracting the driver, pulling the wheel, or contributing to the accident in any way. Getting into a vehicle with a driver who you know to be intoxicated can also negatively affect the value of your case.
If you were a passenger and were injured in a car accident, make sure you seek medical care immediately following the auto accident. Attempt to get as much information from both the at fault driver and/or your driver. You should obtain the name of the driver (and Date of birth), owner of the vehicle, license plate, make and model of the vehicle, insurance information, any witness information, and make a note of what police department arrived at the scene. Another helpful tool would be to take photos of the vehicle and street conditions and anything else you deem important to establishing liability and documenting your injuries.
Please enter all required information to complete your personal injury claim evaluation. If your information is received before 3:00 p.m. CST, an attorney will call you back on the same day!
