Passenger Rights in a Mississippi Car Accidents
Passengers are vulnerable to the very same injuries as drivers, including traumatic brain injuries and broken bones. Regardless of what caused the accident, it is most likely that someone other than the passenger is liable for their injuries.
Typically, filing a claim against an insurance carrier only results in a settlement offer so low, that it might not even cover the claimant’s basic medical expenses. Anytime an insurance adjuster makes an initial offer, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in Mississippi before you accept it.
A free consultation with a passenger injury lawyer from Germany Law Firm, PLLC can provide you with a full understanding of the nuances of your claim, what medical bills to expect now and in the future, and the estimated value of your claim before you consent to a devalued settlement offer.
Passengers are in a unique position when it comes to car accidents in Mississippi. An injured passenger is rarely responsible for the incident, however, this does not mean they are any less likely to sustain injuries during a crash.
