Passengers can suffer serious injuries from circumstances outside of their control. When the driver of a car the passenger is in, or the driver of the other car drives distracted, impaired, aggressive, or speeds, a passenger can suffer as a result of a negligent driver’s actions. Unfortunately, passengers have been known to sustain not only physical injuries but emotional and financial damages in Georgia car accidents.
Because they are typically relatives or friends of the driver involved, passengers often don’t want to bring claims against a driver for their damages; however, injured passengers need to remember that they would be filing claims against the insurance company and not the driver specifically.
At Shane Smith Law, we represent people who were seriously injured as passengers in the following types of accidents, including:
- Head-on crashes
- Rear-end accidents
- Side impact or T-bone collisions
- Rollover crash
- Multi-vehicle accidents and pile-ups
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Distracted driving accidents
- Intersection accidents
- Highway collisions
Passengers who are injured in car crashes in Peachtree City, Roswell, Newnan, Norcross, or anywhere throughout Georgia need to seek legal advice from a skilled attorney to find out their rights. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters often attempt to settle passenger injury claims for less money than what they are worth.
