Recovering Compensation for an Auto Accident as a Passenger

Many people suffer personal injuries as passengers in motor vehicles. The results can be devastating, leaving people with permanent injuries and lasting impacts from physical trauma. A case like this happened recently in Boston where the passengers have a substantial and valid injury claim against the driver of the car they were in.

Fatal East Boston Crash

The driver accused of causing a deadly crash in East Boston pleaded not guilty in his first court appearance. He arrived at the courthouse with a black eye as he was arraigned in East Boston Municipal Court on charges of motor vehicle homicide and leaving the scene of a car wreck. This tragedy is the product of negligent operation of a motor vehicle. The driver’s car hit several parked cars and a cement planter in the median before ending up on its roof. Both passengers had their seat belts on and were hanging upside down in the car when emergency workers found them. Both passengers have strong cases to recover from the driver.

That driver was traveling 80-to-90 mph before the auto accident. He was negligent – there is no question – and a lawyer works to take all the burden off the client. The process is the same if there was another party at fault, but the passengers first make insurance claims against the driver of the vehicle they were in. The passengers are entitled to recover compensation for their pain, suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, and any property damage – or any other related loss – from the car crash.
