When you’re a passenger in another person’s car, or on their motorcycle, you’re putting your trust and safety in their hands. No matter how careful they are and how safely they drive, accidents can still happen. If you’re injured in an accident while a passenger in someone else’s vehicle, their insurance company is representing the driver, not you. As a passenger, you have the right to hire your own attorney to seek compensation for your injuries.
At the Law Offices of Steven T. Snow, we represent people throughout Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts who have suffered injuries as a passenger in a car, truck, motorcycle or boating accident. With more than 25 years of experience in representing people who’ve been injured in an accident while being a passenger, Attorney Steven Snow has developed a well-earned reputation as a fierce advocate for his clients.
Because there are so many options available to a passenger when pursuing compensation in bodily injury or personal injury claims, it’s critical that you work with an attorney who is experienced specifically in this type case. Our Cape Cod law firm will assist you with each step and help you make sure you’re making the right decisions for both your immediate and long-term future.
When seeking compensation for injuries sustained in an accident, you can seek compensation from either the negligent driver of the vehicle in which you were a passenger or the at-fault driver of another vehicle involved in the accident. You may also seek compensation from your own insurance company. Unless your actions contributed to the cause of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:
If you’re married, your spouse may possess a loss of consortium, a claim for damages suffered by your spouse or family.
Although an injured passenger can pursue multiple sources of compensation, that doesn’t necessarily mean that a case will proceed without complications. Many drivers are either uninsured or underinsured, and lack the coverage or financial ability to compensate you for your injuries. But that doesn’t mean you’re out of options. Because this happens so frequently, many passengers who have their own vehicles carry uninsured and underinsured motorist benefits as part of their policies. In these cases, Attorney Steven Snow can help you file a claim against your own insurance company to recover damages.
While we may think that insurance companies are there to help in the case of accident, in reality, they’re in the business of making money, not spending it. Prior to opening his own practice, Attorney Snow worked for a law firm that represented insurance companies in cases involving their customers. This provides him with a deep insight into the strategies of an insurance company. His previous experience, coupled with Attorney Snow’s high level of medical knowledge attained in litigating numerous bodily injury and wrongful death lawsuits, offers our clients an unmatched level of success in securing compensation during settlement negotiations and at jury trials.
