What Is A Passenger Claim?
A passenger claim is a personal injury claim that is made by a passenger who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident. Generally, the passenger may file a claim against the driver who caused the accident, or against a driver's insurance company.
The passenger will need to prove that the driver was at fault for the accident and that their injuries were caused by the accident. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help the passenger gather the necessary evidence and build a strong case.

2. Retain an experienced personal injury attorney
Once you have gathered this evidence, your attorney will help you file a personal injury claim against the driver or the driver's insurance company.
