Being involved in a car accident as a passenger can be terrifying. You might not know where to start to seek compensation or how to determine who should be held responsible for your injuries. To help you during this difficult time, our Arizona car accident attorneys explain your rights if you were injured as a passenger in a car accident.

Your Rights as a Passenger

Even though you were not the driver involved in the accident, you are still entitled to compensation for your injuries. Regardless of who was at fault for the accident – whether it was the driver in your vehicle or another driver, you can seek compensation. You can seek monetary compensation for the following:

  • Medical Bills: you can seek compensation for all past and future medical bills related to the injuries sustained during the accident. The more severe your injuries, the greater your compensation should be. For such reasons, it is vital that you seek medical attention immediately after an accident, even if you think you’re fine. Injuries can appear days or weeks after an accident.

  • Lost Wages: If you’ve had to stay at the hospital or at home to recover, you likely couldn’t go to work – causing you to lose wages. Seeking compensation can help you recover the income you lost while you were recovering from your injuries.

  • Pain & Suffering / Non-Economic Damages: A car accident can also take a mental toll on survivors. For such a reason, you can also seek compensation for pain and suffering even though it’s not linked to an economic loss.
