If you sustained an injury as a passenger in a vehicle involved in an auto accident, you are usually entitled to receive compensation for your injuries. As a passenger, you may have a claim against both the driver of the vehicle in which you were riding as well as the drivers of any other vehicles (or any other negligent parties) involved in the collision. A passenger is generally not considered to be at fault or partially at fault for causing an accident unless he or she does something to cause the accident, such as distract the driver. Contact McPhillips Fitzgerald & Cullum LLP to find out whether or not you are entitled to recovery for your injuries.
In all matters involving personal injury it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and file a lawsuit prior to the deadline imposed by the statute of limitations. If you or a loved one is a victim of personal injuries, call McPhillips Fitzgerald & Cullum LLP now at 518.792.1174 or submit a simple case review form. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.
