Car Passenger Injuries

Car Passenger Injuries

Let Our Louisville Car Accident Lawyer Help

Car accidents can be scary as a driver, but passengers have even less power during these situations. They have no control at all over the speed and direction of the car. However, a passenger usually has an easier case than a driver or any other personal injury plaintiff when filing a claim, typically because of that lack of direct control over the car. Any liability would go to the driver of the car or the driver of another vehicle if more than one was involved.

Types of Passenger Injuries

Depending on where you were seated and from what direction the accident occurred, you could experience different kinds of injuries. They could also result in short- or long-term damage depending on their severity. Injuries you sustain could include the following:

More people die every year in car crashes in the United States than any other high-income countries. If you’ve been involved in a car accident, make sure to seek immediate medical attention. Some symptoms of injuries may not manifest until hours or even days after an accident, including internal bleeding. A doctor can not only diagnose injuries you may have missed, but they can also provide medical evidence you can use later in filing or defending a claim.

Filing a Passenger Injury Claim

Kentucky is a no-fault car accident state. “No-fault” laws mean each driver is covered by his or her insurance policy in the event of an accident regardless of whether or not they are at fault in the collision. As a passenger, you are covered by the Kentucky insurance minimum, which requires a $15,000 personal injury coverage for passengers and anyone else harmed in the accident. There is also a $5,000 medical benefits coverage that accounts for all medical bills of the people involved and a $30,000 total bodily injury liability coverage per accident. The problem comes from what happens if your need exceeds what the insurance can pay? In cases like these, the person responsible for the crash would be held personally liable for the remainder of the cost.
