When You Are a Passenger What Are Your Rights?

If, as a passenger, you were injured in a vehicle accident, then you also have a right to file a personal injury claim. The question in this situation is: who is liable to the passengers? The driver of the vehicle who the passenger was riding with or the other driver? The answer depends on which driver was at fault.

If the driver of the vehicle that passenger is in is at fault, then the passenger may recover against his or her insurance. Alternatively, if the other driver was at fault then the passenger may recover against that driver, but also be entitled to medical payment coverage under the policy of the driver he or she was a passenger.
