Passengers Who Are Hurt In Car Accidents in Ohio
If you were a passenger and were injured in an automobile accident you may have multiple possible legal remedies in order to collect compensation for your injuries. If there were multiple cars in the accident, then surely one of those drivers was at fault. The passenger could collect from the at-fault driver, even if that driver was in the same car as the passenger. If your claim is worth more than the value of insurance of the at-fault driver, then you could collect the remainder under the other driver's uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. If you were injured as a passenger in a car accident in Ohio, then you should talk to your own personal injury attorney.
However, if you live in the same household or are in a close family relationship with the driver who caused the accident, then you would not be able to file a 'liability' claim under that driver's insurance because, because you would be a covered participant of that insurance. However, most plans provide for medical payments, and therefore, you could still be compensated for your injuries. In all other cases, as an injured passenger in a car accident, you may have the option of going after multiple different insurance companies, depending on who was at fault in the accident.
