Passengers may suffer serious or disabling injuries in a car accident. If you find yourself in this situation, you may hire a Roswell personal injury attorney to help file a claim. An attorney can also explain what you need to do in order to protect your legal rights.
Some injuries are more common among passengers who are involved in a car accident, including:
- broken bones;
- neck/back injuries;
- head trauma; and
- damaged/bruised internal organs.
In some cases, a passenger may have less time to react to an impending crash. As a result, they may not be ready for the impact, which may make injuries more serious.
If you sustained serious injuries, compensation may be available to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and more. You could also be entitled to compensation that addresses future medical expenses or lost earnings.
Knowing whether you should file an insurance claim separate from the driver may require legal expertise. Making this decision may depend on the circumstances surrounding your accident and injuries.
