South Miami Passenger Safety
Drivers often believe themselves to be in control of their fate, but as a passenger we often feel more vulnerable. It can be especially upsetting to be injured as a passenger. As a motorist, you likely pay for your insurance and choose the coverage that is best for you. If you are injured as a driver, you can contact your insurance company in order to make a claim. As an occupant in a vehicle, however, you are relying on the insurance coverage of the driver, who may be uninsured or underinsured. In addition, it can be awkward to try to negotiate with insurance carriers when an insurance carrier is representing the driver and not you. Nevertheless, if you have been injured as an occupant in a car accident in South Miami or anywhere in Florida, you do have rights. You can contact a personal injury attorney in order to negotiate with insurance carriers or in order to file a legal claim or pursue other avenues of compensation.

Passengers in a vehicle accident can face many types of injuries, including:
- Head injuries
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Foot and leg injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Disk herniation
While adult passengers are subject to many types of injuries, child occupants of a car can be even more vulnerable in a crash. The best way to prevent child injuries is to place children in the rear seat of a car and to use an age-appropriate safety restraint system.
There is no reason why a child should be riding in a vehicle without a proper restraint system. An age-appropriate safety restraint system, such as a car seat or booster seat, can greatly improve the chances that child will survive a car accident. These seats are specially designed to keep children in place and prevent them from being thrown about the inside of the vehicle.
