California Car Accident Attorneys

Helping Passengers who’ve Been Injured in California

When you ride in a car with someone, you are literally putting your life in the hands that control the steering wheel. As a passenger, you are equally at risk from other drivers on the road as well. It is important that you are aware of your rights to recover for injuries sustained while you were a passenger in a vehicle. Drivers owe the same duty of reasonable care to passengers in other cars and their own, as they do to fellow drivers and pedestrians. There is also a special duty that is owed by common carriers, such as buses, trains, Uber & Lyft, taxi cabs, passenger vans, and limousine drivers, toward their passengers.

Car accidents can cause some of the most devastating injuries to passengers, who may not be protected the same as the driver due to the design of the vehicle, such as:

An experienced California car accident attorney at B&D Law Group, APLC can help you obtain the maximum recovery for injuries you sustained as a passenger in an automobile accident. You do not have to go at it alone.

What Can Passengers Recover After a Car Crash?

Passengers that are injured in an automobile accident may be able to recover from the driver of the vehicle, from other drivers, and possibly even from their own insurance. In certain circumstances, passengers are even able to recover from the insurance company, even if they are related to the at-fault driver. An experienced attorney can help you steer through the myriad of laws and insurance policy provisions that relate to passengers in a motor vehicle accident.

Common carriers, such as buses, trains, taxi cabs, shuttle vans, and limousine drivers, owe a special duty toward their passengers, adding additional avenues by which an injured passenger can seek recovery on their accident claim. Common carriers owe a duty to their passengers to ensure that the vehicles are properly maintained and that the drivers have the proper skill and training to operate the vehicles.

If you were a passenger in a car accident or lost a loved one as a passenger in an automobile collision, please contact B&D Law Group. Our experienced California passenger accident attorneys have a wealth of experience helping passenger victims.
