Miami Passenger Safety
One thing that is not often discussed when speaking of roadway collisions is a passenger’s ability to seek compensation if they are injured in an accident. In many car accident cases in Miami and Florida, the driver who has been injured will seek compensation through their insurance company or by seeking a legal claim against liable parties. What happens, though, if you are a passenger in a car crash? In these cases, you may also be able to pursue the at-fault driver who caused the accident, even if that driver is the person who is driving you.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to a reckless driver, contact the personal injury attorneys at Flaxman Law Group for a consultation. Your initial consultation is free and comes with no obligation. Your confidential consultation is your chance to discuss your situation with a personal injury attorney so that you can understand whether you have a case and how much the case may be worth. Our attorneys can help you explore your legal options, including negotiating with insurance carriers or filing a legal claim, so that you can make an informed decision about what to do next in your situation.Passengers Have Options to Stay Safe
There are many passenger safety options and devices that can help keep passengers safe in a vehicle:
- Side-impact air bags
- Dashboard passenger side airbags
- Car seats or booster seats for children
Despite these devices, passengers in vehicles can and often are seriously injured in traffic collisions in Miami and Florida. If this has happened to you, it is important to note that there may be multiple liable parties in your case. If a seat belt or other passenger safety device failed to act correctly, you may have a legal claim against the manufacturer of the safety device. If the driver transporting you was at fault, you may have a claim against that driver. If the motorist of another vehicle caused the accident, you may have a legal case against that liable party.
To find out who is responsible for your accident and injuries and to find out what legal options you may have, contact a personal injury attorney in your community to discuss your rights and your next steps for pursuing compensation and justice. In cases where your injuries have been caused by negligence or recklessness, is important to consult with a personal injury attorney to review all of your legal options for compensation. You may qualify for compensation that helps you pay for lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, medical bills, and other costs. Without compensation, paying for these costs may be financially catastrophic for you and your family.
