Passengers have many rights when injured in an auto accident. This applies equally when the accident is caused by the driver of the vehicle in which the passenger is traveling. It also applies when the driver was a family member.
Passengers Have Many Accident Insurance Options
Passengers have several insurance options following a car accident including liability insurance, underinsured insurance, and personal liability umbrella insurance. The options will depend upon the situation, the insurance of the driver, and the insurance of the passenger.
