Injured Passengers Have Rights Too

Categories: Accident Victims

When you are driving and have an accident, things are fairly straight forward. You carry insurance to cover damages, and every licensed motorist on the road is also required to carry at least liability coverage to make sure any accidents that they cause cover the damages they cause. There are policy limits, however, and often insurance pay-outs are simply not enough, particularly if large medical bills are involved.

The situation becomes even more complex when you are the passenger in a vehicle that is involved in an accident. What happens, heaven forbid, if your loved one is injured or even killed while a passenger in a vehicle? Who represents the victim then? What if there are criminal issues involved, such as DUI or wreckless driving?

These issues and more are the type we deal with every day at the Law Offices of David Van Sant.

As a law firm focused on personal injury law, we help clients through some of the most difficult times in their lives. To help accident victims and their families requires a combination of legal tenacity and caring. When we are hired to help our clients get the financial support they need to pay for medical bills or to cover lost wages or long-term pain management or care, we can be tough. But when it comes to listening to our clients and making sure we are offering them every bit of help we can, we are caring and considerate.

If you or someone you love was in an accident that was not their fault, or if you or a loved one was a passenger in a car accident and were injured as a result, contact the Law Offices of David Van Sant. We are here to help accident victims understand their rights and to make those who are responsible take responsibility.
