You May Have More Options Than You Think
Just because you were a passenger in a vehicle during a car accident does not mean that you have no options. At the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, law offices of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we represent passengers who have been injured in car and truck accidents.
If you have been hurt while riding in someone else's car, you may have more options than you think. You may be able to bring a lawsuit against the negligent driver who hit your car. You may also be able to pursue action against your driver's insurance company.
Sometimes passengers worry about suing the driver of their vehicle. They should know that they are really bringing a lawsuit against that driver's insurance company, and this is the very reason that many drivers carry insurance. Many drivers are actually reassured to know that their injured passengers do have options, and that they will be compensated for their injuries.
What To Do After An Auto Accident
If you have been in an auto accident and are unsure of what to do, contact our attorneys to talk about your options. Always contact the police at the scene of the incident if there is any chance of injury and any amount of property damage, no matter how minor. Report the incident to your own auto insurance company as well, but wait to talk with the other driver's insurance company until you have spoken with a lawyer first.
As lawyers with more than 30 years of experience in personal injury law, we can help make sure that you receive the best possible results from your motor vehicle accident case.
