Q
I was injured in a one-vehicle Atlanta car crash. Can I sue the driver of the vehiclein which I wasa passenger?

A

If you were injured in an Atlanta car accident because the driver of the vehicle in which you were a passenger was driving recklessly or was negligent in some way, you can file a Georgia personal injury claim for your accident injuries. You cannot sue if the driver was not negligent but your injuries should still be covered by insurance.

 
If at the time of the accident, you owned a car that was covered by insurance, then your insurance company is responsible for your medical bills, property damage and lost wages. If you did not own a vehicle, the insurance of the owner of the vehicle in which you were a passenger would be responsible for damages such as your medical bills and other losses.

 
If you have any questions about your rights or insurance coverage after a Georgia car crash, call Atlanta accident attorney Shane Smith at 770-HURT-999.
