Often, passengers in a car know the driver. the relationship could be friends, husband-wife, mother-son, father-daughter or many other types of relationships where you know the driver well. As skilled personal injury attorneys we understand, there is a stigma about filing a claim for serious injuries against someone you know. However, that is typically the only way you can get your medical bills paid and be fully compensated for your injuries. Don't forget, the claim is really being made against the driver's insurance company and being paid by them. The driver had insurance for this very day. There is nothing wrong, and it is perfectly legal and acceptable, to pursue a claim for injury, even if you know the driver.

Never accept an insurance settlement without talking to an experienced Chicago car accident lawyer first. In most cases, passengers of auto accidents are without fault and entitled to recover. If this is the case, the driver's insurance company may act quickly to offer you a settlement. Many accident victims will be tempted to take the settlement and avoid contacting an attorney. If you accept the settlement, you will be forfeiting your right to seek future compensation. Many accidents victims don't do realize that their injuries can be more serious than they appear, requiring additional treatment or surgery. It is our experience that most serious injury cases end up having a lawsuit filed. That is typically the only way to force the insurance company to be fair and fully compensation the accident victim who is seriously injured or the family of someone who has died while a passenger in an accident.
