Should a Passenger File a Personal Injury Claim after a Car Accident?

Should a Passenger File a Personal Injury Claim

Should a passenger file a personal injury claim after a Mission Viejo car accident?  Yes, injured passengers always have a claim in California, with very few exceptions.  Generally speaking, a passenger does not have to worry about proving liability.  However, the process of filing a successful personal injury claim can be a bit different for a passenger than it would be for a driver.

In most cases, a passenger who is injured in an accident of two or more vehicles will file a claim against every driver associated with the accident.  As an injured passenger, it is prudent to seek and write down the insurance information for all drivers.
