The Friday Five 11.8.19 – Thank you Veterans!
What happens if I’m hurt as a passenger but my friend caused the accident?
Accidents happen every day, for a number of reasons. And while many of the clients we help were injured because the other driver caused the accident, there are some instances where the passengers were injured in an accident caused by a friend or family member who was driving. A big myth is that getting an attorney’s help means that you are suing your loved one. That’s not the case. If the insurance company is giving you a hard time about paying for your medical bills, an attorney’s job is to get the insurance adjuster to pay up – NOT cause a nightmare for the driver. An accident is just that – an accident – but that doesn’t mean you should suffer just because the insurance company is giving you the run around.
