When an automobile collision occurs, the medical bills from the injuries can be staggering. As a passenger, you often do not want to sue the person who was driving the vehicle you were in. Many times you feel it was the other person’s fault.
But as a passenger, you may need to include the driver if your driver is simply accused of comparative fault. As long as your driver is insured, you are not taking money directly from them. Your personal injuries could have been cause by the negligence of both drivers.
If you are asked to sign a release by your driver’s insurance company, do not do it. Be sure your rights are protected.
