Car accidents do not only risk the safety of the drivers. Pedestrians and passengers often suffer severe injuries, as well. Making an insurance claim as a passenger is not easy, though, since insurers can argue about liability.
One of our victims suffered injuries to her wrist as a passenger in a vehicle collision, and she even had to have a bone removed from the affected wrist. The insurance company argued about the extent of her injuries even though she suffered a limited range of motion that made her daily activities difficult. We were able to settle a high six-figure payout during mediation.
