Ohio motor vehicle accident claims are not exclusively for injuries suffered by drivers. In fact, by far the largest number of motor vehicle crash deaths are accounted for by passenger fatalities across all classes of vehicles. Being in a motor vehicle accident can be frightening and financially stressful for the driver, but for passengers who are injured in accidents the experience can be exponentially more difficult because they have no control and were not responsible for breaking any safety rules.
A number of complex legal issues can become personal in passenger injury claims because the passenger almost always knows the driver. For this reason, some passengers are reluctant to take any legal action against a driver who is a friend or family member. By not taking action, however, the passenger may be left with the unfair burden of paying for medical expenses, potential loss of wages, and more. Passenger accident victims should remember they are pursuing compensation against the insurance company of the vehicle’s driver and other negligent parties involved in the collision, not the driver themselves.
