Help for Passengers Injured in Car Accidents
Car crashes harm thousands of Arizona residents every year.

What are My Rights as an Injured Passenger in Phoenix?
Like drivers or pedestrians injured in a crash, passengers have the right to file a personal injury claim against the person or people who hurt them. However, most passengers have no role in causing a collision. If you were hurt as a passenger, you will need to prove who caused the crash, how you were injured, and that you took the proper safety precautions, such a buckling your seatbelt.
When you have determined who caused your accident and how much you must be paid in compensation in order to cope with your losses, you can file a claim against the at-fault party. Like any injured car crash victim, you have the right to seek full and fair compensation from the at-fault party and his or her insurance provider that pays for medical bills, injuries, disabilities, and rehabilitation, both in the past and future.
However, passengers are often under a unique legal circumstance. Many cases are filed against the driver of the vehicle they were in. This means that cases may have to be filed against friends or family in order to receive compensation for injuries, medical bills, and other losses.
Should I Hold a Loved One Responsible?
If your crash was caused by a family member or friend driving dangerously, you may have no other choice but to file a personal injury claim against him or her. Even if they put you and others in danger, such as driving drunk or recklessly, you may not want to file an auto accident claim.
Beyond emotional and relational ties, you may feel as though you will be subjecting your loved one to thousands and thousands of dollars in debt. However, a proper personal injury claim will seek money to pay for your losses directly from the driver’s insurance provider, not from the driver.
Without filing a claim, you will be left with severe debt from needed medical care and may be unable to pay for any future medical needs caused by your injuries. Attempting to arrange payments from your loved one that do not involve insurance companies and legal avenues will only add more complications, likely leading to more financial harm and damaged relationships.
