Car Passenger Injuries
Secure Essential Damages with Our Southern Illinois Car Accident Attorneys
When a passenger is injured in a car accident, they have the legal option of pursuing compensation by filing a claim. In most cases, these lawsuits are successful so long as the plaintiff can accurately determine the negligent party and prove their injuries are a result of the accident. However, there may be complications if the passenger is related to the liable party.
Before you file a claim, it’s important to seek legal counsel from an experienced lawyer. At Sam C. Mitchell & Associates, our auto accident attorneys in Southern Illinois can review your case, thoroughly explain your legal options, and help you file an effective claim. We work on a contingency fee basis, so you can pursue justice and damages without worrying about the cost. You don’t pay our firm unless we win.

Passenger Injury Claims
Car accidents often lead to injuries that require intensive medical care. Victims are often saddled with expensive medical bills and may suffer other injury-related financial losses. Sometimes, even their jobs are affected because they can’t perform their regular duties.
If you’ve been injured in an accident as a passenger, you can file a claim against the liable driver’s insurance policy to recoup your losses. However, in certain circumstances, an insurance policy may not provide financial damages if you are directly related to the negligent driver.
Liability coverage provides for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
It’s important to discuss your specific circumstances with an attorney. You may need to file a third-party insurance claim or even multiple claims to recover the damages your injuries warrant.
