I was a passenger in a car involved in a crash and was injured. Do I have a legal claim?

Yes, if you were a passenger involved in a car wreck and were injured, you can file a claim against the driver’s insurance company. However, these particular kinds of claims are relatively tricky, depending on your relationship to the driver. For example, if your husband was driving and you were injured in the crash with another vehicle. Determining compensation for your injuries can be complicated by fault and other factors. For this reason, it may be best to have a car accident attorney involved, explaining how the compensation is garnered and that it is not a personal matter, but simply how the system works when it comes to filing insurance claims.
