Passenger Injuries

We Represent Injured Passengers Seeking to Recover for Their Injuries

In addition to representing injured drivers in car and truck accidents, we also represent injured passengers seeking compensation for their injuries, and the families of those who have lost a loved one killed as a passenger in a motor vehicle accident.

Who May Be Liable for Your Injuries?

Ordinarily, passengers are entitled to seek full compensation for their injuries and damages from those who are legally responsible for causing the same. This means that if your injured as a passenger in one car because your car was hit by another driver at fault, you will be entitled to seek recovery for your injuries from such other driver. If the other driver was intoxicated because he or she was overserved alcohol and apart, you may also be entitled to recover compensation from the owner of such bar to the extent that they are legally liable. If the accident resulted because of a defective product the other vehicle, such as a defective tire, you may also be entitled to seek recovery against a manufacturer or distributor of the defective product.

No-Fault Compensation

In New York injured passengers are generally entitled to compensation under no-fault laws from the insurance company of the driver of the car in which they were riding.  A notice of claim for these benefits usually must be filed within 30 days of the accident.  As a result, we will want to immediately prepare and file with such insurance company a claim for no-fault benefits on behalf of an injured passenger client.
