Were You Hurt in a Car Crash as a Passenger?
Get an experienced Gilbert car accident attorney on your side
A car accident can leave the drivers involved with serious injuries. But passengers also get hurt during a crash. They have the right to seek financial compensation for the damages they suffered. However, they can expect insurance companies to dispute their claim in an attempt to pay as little as possible. That’s why you need an experienced Arizona car accident attorney.
Browne Law Group can help. Attorney Byron Browne has been fighting insurance companies on behalf of the injured for years. He understands how an accident can impact your life. You’re in pain and medical expenses are adding up. But you’re not sure how you’ll pay the bills, leading to financial stress.
We also understand that in some cases, the negligent driver who caused the accident is a friend or family member. You may feel strange about filing a claim. But this is not about getting your friend or family member in trouble. It’s about getting the insurance company to do the right thing by compensating you for the damages you suffered.
Passengers can be severely hurt in car crashes
A car crash can leave passengers with a wide range of injuries. These include concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, broken bones, damage to internal organs, burns, and injuries to the head, neck, back, or shoulder. It can take months or even years to fully recover. Some passengers are left with a permanent disability.
In the meantime, an injured passenger may have needed X-rays, MRIs, lab tests, surgery, medication, physical therapy, home health care, and follow-up appointments with doctors. Medical expenses can add up very quickly. But if passengers are unable to work because of their injuries, there’s less incoming in. This can lead to financial stress.
If a negligent driver caused an accident that left you hurt, you deserve financial compensation. It doesn’t matter if the driver was in the car with you, or in another vehicle. But it’s not a simple process.
For one thing, the driver may deny doing anything wrong – even if the driver was speeding, texting behind the wheel, or driving aggressively. That puts you in the position of having to prove their negligence caused the crash.
Then there are the insurance companies. Their goal is to pay you as little as they possibly can. Insurance companies handle claims every day and they have the advantage.
That’s why you need attorney Byron Browne on your side.
A car accident lawyer who takes no B.S.
Insurance companies use many different tactics to try to minimize your compensation after a crash. They may question the seriousness of your injuries and suggest they aren’t that bad. They may seek access to your medical history, in an attempt to argue that your injuries were pre-existing (for example, that you’ve always had back problems).
Or they’ll just offer you a settlement. Soon after the crash, you may be contacted by an adjuster with an offer. They’ll promise quick payment. This will come just as medical expenses are adding up and you’re getting stressed about bills. Here’s the problem – their offer will fall far short of covering all of your damages.
