What Happens if I Am Injured as a Passenger in a Texas Vehicle Collision?

When driver negligence causes another person harm during a vehicle collision in Texas, any of the car, truck or SUV’s occupants can be injured in the crash, including passengers who had no control over the accident’s circumstances.

Our personal injury attorneys in Austin represent injured clients throughout Texas, including passengers who were hurt by the driver of the vehicle they were in or another driver’s negligence.

When the drivers’ insurance companies begin debating who was at fault for the crash, there may be a significant amount of time where the injured passenger is financially and physically helpless, incurring mounting medical bills, lost wages, and additional expenses from an accident that were completely out of their control.

We can help.

Here is what passengers need to know after being injured in a car crash.

Which Driver is Liable for a Passenger’s Personal Injuries in Texas?

When there is a vehicle collision in Texas, the negligent driver is typically the one who is liable for the damages that occurred, including any personal injuries sustained by the occupants.

If a passenger is the one who is injured, it could be that the driver of the car he or she was in was negligent, or another driver was at fault for the crash.

Depending on the details of the crash, our skilled personal injury lawyers in Austin will ensure we are pursuing the insurance policy or policies that will fully compensate you for each of your recovery needs.

What Type of Damages Can I Recover Through a Passenger Injury Claim?
