Utah Passenger Claim Lawyers


Any passenger in a vehicle accident is considered free of liability or not at fault unless they did something that distracted the driver, or in any other way contributed to the accident. Additionally, if you get into a vehicle knowing that the driver is intoxicated, you may have "assumed the risk" of being in an accident. If you are a passenger and you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may receive a cash award for your injuries and pain and suffering.
As a passenger, you may have a claim against all negligent parties, which can include the driver of the car you were riding in when the accident occurred, as well as the drivers of other vehicles involved. It is very important that you get as much information about the circumstances as possible, for example, who was driving each car, what happened, the weather or road conditions, and the name, address, and phone number of any witnesses.
Your independent information may be the key to receiving the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering. We all purchase insurance to help us through the unexpected – including passenger injuries. If you were injured as a passenger in a car accident, you may have several options to obtain the compensation you need for recovery. William Rawlings & Associates will help you understand those rights, some of which are as follows:
Car insurance claim: If you were injured as a passenger, you can make a claim against the insurance company that covers the car you are in if the driver of that car is found to be at fault.
Your own insurance: If there was insufficient liability insurance to cover a serious passenger injury, you can often make up some or all of the shortfall by making a claim against your own policy. This generally will not affect your rates or increase your insurance premium.
The other driver's insurance: If a driver in another car was found responsible for the accident, you can make a claim against that insurance company.

Most injury claims can be settled for their full value through negotiation, mediation or arbitration, without having to go to court. Our firm settles almost 98% of our accident cases outside of court. However, if the Insurance Company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement to compensate you for all of your present and future loss, this may require that you participate in legal proceedings.
You should contact an accident attorney as soon as possible after being injured so that your rights and evidence are protected. Do not give the insurance company a recorded statement as this can be used against you at a later time. You may give them your version of the accident as long as it is not recorded. Our Salt Lake City accident attorneys will begin to work for you immediately and make sure you get the medical attention you need even if you don’t have your own medical insurance.
This is going to be one of the biggest decisions that could affect the best outcome and the rest of your life. Most accident attorneys offer a free consultation so take the time to interview your attorney. Ask what is their philosophy? You will be working with them for a long time. You will want a firm that will help you with all aspects of your case, not just the injury portion. So choose a firm that will help you with property damage, rental car, doctor referrals and specialists you can’t afford and disability payments for time off work. Ask around and talk to family and friends who have had to use an accident attorney. Approximately 50% of our new client referrals come from previous clients and we are the Utah auto accident attorneys that other lawyers recommend to their family and friends.
