Miramar Passenger Safety

Many traffic accidents in Miramar result not only in injuries to the driver of a car, but also to his or her passengers. For passengers, the process of securing compensation and insurance money for injuries can be especially intimidating, since passengers will generally be dealing with an unfamiliar insurance company. While passengers are covered in most cases by the driver’s insurance policy, the fact that the passenger likely knows the driver can make the claims process awkward and even uncomfortable.

If you are hesitating pursuing compensation and justice, contact Flaxman Law Group. Our professional legal team can help you evaluate your options and can help you negotiate with insurance carriers.

  • Avoid distracted driving
  • Maintain your vehicle -- including passenger side airbags and all seat belts – correctly
  • Avoid fatigued driving

What Causes Passenger Injury?

Injuries to passengers can come from a number of sources, including:

  • Mechanical failure of an airbag, seatbelt, or other car system
  • Driver negligence or error
  • Poor road design
  • The at-fault driver

Finding out what has caused your accident and injuries is important in helping you pursue fair compensation from liable parties at hand. Consult with a personal injury attorney to find out who may be liable in your case. An attorney often works with private investigators as well as other professionals who can help you get answers about the cause of your collision.
