Fort Worth injury lawyer Mark Anderson discusses the legal rights of passengers injured in Texas automobile accidents
If you were a passenger who was injured in a Texas auto accident, it is important that you are aware of your legal rights. As a passenger, you have no control over the vehicle you are in, so you cannot be considered at fault for causing a crash. However, you can stil be injured.
Texas law gives you the right to make a claim for compensation to cover the cost of your accident-related medical bills, lost income, and other expenses. You can even make a claim against the driver of the vehicle you were riding in, if they were the driver at fault for causing the wreck. This means that even if the negligent driver was your husbandm wife, father, or mother, you can make a claim against their insurance policy. That's why we pay for insurance.
