Greenberg & Bederman handles passenger injury cases in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC
Any passenger in an auto accident is considered free of liability for the accident, unless they committed an overt act that distracted the driver, or in any other way contributed to the accident.
Additionally, if you get into a vehicle knowing that the driver is intoxicated, you may have ‘assumed the risk’ of being in an accident.
If you are a passenger and you are injured in a car accident, you may receive compensation for your injuries. Please see a doctor immediately if you are injured. As a passenger, you may have a claim against all negligent parties, which can include the driver of the car you were riding in when the accident occurred, as well as the drivers of the other vehicles involved in the accident.
It is vitally important that you get as much information about the circumstances as possible, such as who was driving each car, what happened, the weather or road conditions, or any witnesses, etc. Your independent information may be the key to receiving compensation for your injuries.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a passenger in a motor vehicle, call injury attorneys at Greenberg & Bederman for a free legal consultation today at (301) 589-2200 or (800) 800-1144 or fill out our online web form right now.
The initial passenger injury consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your passenger injury case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. A lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations so please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
