Q: Can I Recover Damages if I Was a Passenger in the Negligent Drivers Car at the Time of the Georgia Accident?
A:Yes, in many cases you will be able to recover damages if you were a passenger in the car that caused the Georgia car crash. Georgia law recognizes you as a victim of the accident and allows you to make a claim against the negligent driver and the negligent driver’s insurance company. However, your rights to recovery may be limited if you are the parent, child, or spouse of the driver who caused the accident.
Filing a lawsuit to collect damages against a relative or friend can be challenging. Each Atlanta car accident attorney is sensitive to that fact and will explain how we will work toward getting you the financial recovery that you need from your friend or relative’s auto insurance company.
As a passenger, you did not cause the accident and should not have to bear the consequences of the accident. Call an Atlanta car accident lawyer at The Dover Law Firm today for more information. We can be reached at 770.518.1133 or via our online contact form.
