Passenger Injuries in Arizona
In nearly all traffic accidents, establishing which driver was at fault is of the utmost importance. When a passenger is injured, however, chances are the fault lies with the driver of their car, the driver of the other car, or some outside condition over which a passenger has no control and, by extension, no legal responsibility.
For this reason, passengers normally have no liability in an accident. The important question for them is which person and/or insurance carrier is be responsible for their damages, including hospital and medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses as well.
As an injured passenger, a car insurance carrier is certain to play a role in recovering financial compensation for your losses. The rules surrounding these kinds of accidents are complicated, so victims should consult an attorney as soon as possible after being injured as a passenger in a road accident.
