It is devastating to be seriously injured as a passenger in a car accident that you had little to no control over. It’s important to understand your legal options as a passenger to ensure you aren’t forfeiting rightful compensation from the responsible party or insurance companies.
What Are Third-Party Claims?
Third-party insurance claims are initiated by someone who doesn’t own the policy. As a passenger in the vehicle, you’ll likely need to make a third-party claim against either the other vehicle’s driver’s policy or the driver’s policy of the vehicle you were riding in.
If you are struggling to cover ongoing medical expenses, then it is possible to receive Med pay coverage. Med pay claims are usually faster, but they won’t help you recover damages like lost wages or pain and suffering. This coverage exclusively covers medical bills.Passengers injured in a car accident may rack up medical bills that far exceed the liability limits of the driver’s insurance policy. While victims can’t recover more than their claim is worth, it is possible to pursue multiple claims on the same injury to recover from your losses.
