Passenger injuries in car accidents are common

Motor vehicle accident injuries are not limited to the drivers of the cars or trucks involved. In fact, passengers in these vehicles can sustain severe, catastrophic injuries as well. Depending on the force of the collision, a passenger runs the risk of suffering a fatal injury in a serious car accident.

If you were injured in a car crash, you might be confused about how to proceed. It is important to remember that - even as a passenger - you are entitled to seek monetary compensation for your injuries as well as the devastating impact those injuries can have in all facets of your life. An attorney who is experienced in West Virginia personal injury law can provide answers and legal guidance.

There are numerous factors that can influence the severity of accident injuries. From the speed of the vehicles to the angle of impact, no two car accidents are the same. Likewise, passenger injuries vary from accident to accident. It is wise to seek the care and attention of a trusted medical professional following even a seemingly minor accident. Depending on the accident, injuries can range from broken bones to head injuries or even paralysis.

Typically, injured passengers are unsure how to proceed after an accident. What if the accident was caused by the driver of the vehicle the passenger was in? What if the driver is a close friend? Many people are hesitant to pursue legal action against a friend - even if it is to pay medical bills for injuries caused by the actions of that friend. A lawyer can examine your case and provide clear direction regarding liability and the possibility of monetary compensation. Don't forget that you have rights - even if you were only a passenger during a vehicle accident.
