A car accident doesn’t only affect the drivers involved. Many passengers are injured, and their lives can be changed in seconds. Passengers who are injured in an accident caused by negligence deserve financial compensation, but the process can be complicated. The experienced car accident lawyers at The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic fight for their rights.
Through no fault of their own, passengers can suffer serious injuries that can impact their lives in many ways. They may need diagnostic tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health care and follow-up appointments with doctors. Their medical expenses can become overwhelming just as they are unable to work because of their injuries.
In many cases, the negligent driver was operating the car the passenger was in. These passengers may not feel right about seeking financial compensation from the driver – who is often a friend or family member. They are concerned that taking legal action will get the driver in trouble.
Fighting for the compensation you deserve
Recovering compensation isn’t about getting someone into trouble. It’s about getting insurance companies to fulfill their responsibilities. The driver’s insurance policy is supposed to help people who are hurt after an accident. The insurance company should pay you the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.
Insurance companies are always concerned about their bottom line. To keep their profits as high as possible, they will try to pay you as little as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation. They may:
- Question the seriousness of your injuries
- Argue your injuries were pre-existing
- Deny liability
- Make a lowball settlement offer that falls far short of covering your damage
