Did you know that if you have suffered injuries, or lost a loved one, as a passenger of a vehicle when the driver is liable for the accident, that you may have grounds to recover compensation? Many people assume that in order to obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and mental anguish there must be a collision with another vehicle. Those assumptions are false and many factors can lead to an auto accident that could be grounds to file a case. Dangerous roadways, vehicle design flaws, mechanical defects, and negligent driving are all examples of causes of auto accidents.
