A Passenger Can File A Car Accident Claim

A Passenger Can File A Car Accident ClaimA Passenger Can File A Car Accident Claim

Some passengers may be unaware that they can file a car accident claim because most car accident claims are filed by a driver. However, any passenger can file a car accident claim as long long as the passenger suffered some type of injury as a result of the car accident.

Were You A Passenger In the Car That Caused The Accident?

A passenger who files a car accident claim is typically a passenger of a vehicle that was not at fault for the accident. But a passenger can file a car accident claim even if he was a passenger of the vehicle that caused the car accident. Again, the passenger in the vehicle that caused the accident must show that he suffered some type of injury because of the accident and the accident was a result of the driver’s negligence. 

A passenger that is injured in a car accident in Texas must file a car accident claim against the offending party’s insurance. This can be an easy decision when the passenger is not in the vehicle that caused the accident; because this generally means the other driver who is responsible is a stranger. However, this decision can be complicated when the passenger is in the vehicle that caused the accident; because this generally means the driver of the offending vehicle is a family member or a friend.

But regardless of whether or not you are a passenger in the vehicle that caused the accident or a passenger in the non-offending vehicle, any passenger can file a car accident claim if they suffered injuries as a result of the car accident.
