Passenger Claims

Huntsville Car Accident Lawyer Assisting Injured Motor Vehicle Passengers

If you’ve been injured as a passenger in a car accident , you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Passenger  claims happen all the time in Alabama. Even though Alabama has a guest passenger statute, that does not mean you can’t recover for your injuries. Our Alabama car accident lawyers are here to help you understand your rights.

Multiple Potential Defendants

Injured passengers may have an actionable claim against various third-parties (i.e., other drivers, the City, the car manufacturer, etc.), as well as their own driver. If the driver acted negligently, wantonly, ecklessly, or intentionally, and caused the passenger’s injuries, then they can recover for their injuries.

For example, if the driver of your was speeding excessively, drunk or texting, you may be able to recover. If the other driver was at fault, you can recover for all of your injuries. Further, you may be able to recover from your own under/uninsured motorist carrier.

If you have been injured in a car accident due to the fault of another, Alabama law entitles you to sue and recover damages on their behalf. You may obtain the following in compensation:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Mental anguish
