Fort Lauderdale Passenger Safety

Buckling your seatbelt is crucial, but it is no guarantee that as a passenger you will not be injured in a collision. Unfortunately, sometimes even with safety restraint systems and air bags, passengers get injured. In these cases, how is it possible to tell what has caused the collision and the injuries? How can you work to secure fair compensation after a traffic collision in Fort Lauderdale or your community?

In many cases, you may be more vulnerable if you have been injured as a passenger in a car driven by someone else. The insurance process may be more confusing for you and you may be dealing with an unfamiliar insurance company. Flaxman Law Group would like to help. If you have been injured, give our law firm a call at 866-352-9626 to set up a free accident consultation so that you can review your case with a personal injury attorney.

Do not Let Emotions Play a Role in Your Decisions After a Car Collision in Fort Lauderdale or Your Community

If you have been injured in a car accident as a passenger in a car, you may be asked by the motorist to not file an insurance claim. This is especially the case if the driver is a friend, family member, co-worker, partner, or someone else you know. The driver may even offer to pay you out of pocket for your expenses. If this is the case, make sure that the payment will cover all your costs and consider what would happen if a promise of payment is made but your friend or family member never gives you the cash.

A passenger who is injured in a road accident has legal rights:

  • The right to seek benefits under the driver’s insurance policy
  • The right to recover the same types of damages and compensation as a motorist
  • The right to seek compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, property damages, incidental expenses, losses, and medical expenses
  • The right to seek a legal claim against any liable or negligent parties in the case

If you have been injured in a car accident, a skilled personal injury lawyer can help you understand your legal options and can help you seek maximum compensation for your injuries. This can be crucial in helping you to turn your life around after an accident. Seeking fair compensation ensures that you don't have to worry where the money will come from to pay for living expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and more.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group stress the importance of passenger safety. We believe that passengers should be provided with adequate seatbelts, safe drivers, and the other precautions needed to keep them safe. We also believe that when drivers and other parties are negligent in providing passengers with the safety they deserve, they can and should be held fully liable under the law. If you would like to know whether you have a claim or would like to discuss your situation in a free, confidential case review, contact our law firm today for a free case assessment.
