Salt Lake City Passenger Injuries Lawyer
When most people think of car accident injuries, they typically think of injuries sustained by the driver. However, some of the most serious accident injuries in Salt Lake City occur to passengers. Whether you were a passenger in a car, truck or motorcycle, you depend on the driver to make good decisions on the road. However, if the injuries are the result of negligence by the driver or another motorist, you are entitled to seek compensation to account for your medical care, damages, lost wages along with your pain and suffering. My name is Christian Burridge and I am a Salt Lake passenger injuries attorney. My legal team and I represent passengers who have suffered injuries in motor vehicle accidents throughout Utah. Together, we are ready to help clients recover the compensation they deserve.
Protecting the Rights of Passengers Injured in Motor Vehicle Accidents
Not all personal injury lawsuits that involve car accidents are the same. Among the most complex deal with injuries suffered by passengers. Many of these accident victims do not properly understand their rights. As your Salt Lake City passenger injury attorney my first objective is to educate clients on their rights and to help them make the best possible decisions. One of the most important rights is that accident victims can pursue action against all negligent parties. That includes those who caused the accident and those who contributed to their injuries.
What If Your Friend or Family Member is Responsible For Accident Injuries?
The truth is most passengers ride with people they know. In many of these cases, the driver may be a friend or family member. Unlike many personal injury cases, those that involve passengers can often become the most complicated from both a legal and personal standpoint. Because these injuries are often the result of negligence by someone they know, accident victims often choose not to pursue legal action. But the reality is there will be significant medical costs and lost wages due to the accident. This can place tremendous financial hardships on accident victims. All of these expenses need to be addressed. It is important to understand that compensation is paid out by the negligent driver’s insurance company–not by the driver. Depending on the situation, legal action may be the best option to recover the money needed to account for all of your expenses.
Protecting the Rights of Children Injured in Motor Vehicle Accidents
Children are often the passengers in car accidents. Whether the child is riding with a parent, family member or caregiver, it can be a very difficult situation. But as your Salt Lake City personal injury attorney, I can negotiate with the insurance company of the negligent driver to help make the situation better for the client. As your attorney, I am not only committed to protecting the rights of the client, but also their children.
