WERE YOU A PASSENGER IN A VEHICLE INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT?

If you were injured in a car accident as a passenger, the at-fault driver may not be the one in the other vehicle.  Many times it is the driver sitting next to you.

In Louisiana, when a passenger is injured due to the negligence of the vehicle’s driver, the passenger has a right to recover compensation from that driver or that insurance company.  Likewise, if the driver of the vehicle that you are a passenger in and one or more other drivers all contributed to the accident, you can potentially recover from any driver who shared in the fault, including the driver of your vehicle.

Although many passengers may be hesitate to seek compensation from the driver of their vehicle.  Understand that the driver likely has insurance and will not have to personally pay for the injuries that you sustained.
