How Can Injured Passengers Seek Compensation?
An injured passenger pay be able to seek compensation by filing a third party insurance claim against either:
- The insurance policy of the driver of the car they were riding in, or
- The insurance policy of the driver of another vehicle involved in the accident.
These are called “third party” because the injured person is filing a claim under an insurance policy that is not their own. Depending on the circumstances, an injured passenger may be able to file multiple claims. If one policy does not have enough liability coverage to cover all losses that the passenger has suffered, he or she may pursue an additional claim against another driver involved in the accident to make up the rest (up to, and not exceeding, the value of their case). However, family members who reside in the same household as the insured cannot file a claim against the driver’s policy, as they are already covered under the policy.
