What if I am a passenger in a car being driven by my spouse or other relative?


You can be compensated for your injury in a car crash even if your spouse or relative was driving and was at fault in causing the accident, and even if you own the car involved in the accident. This coverage is part of the insurance policy and part of what was purchased when the premium payments were made. For more information, see our blog post about passenger’s rights. Our auto accident attorneys have recovered insurance compensation for many people who were a passenger when their spouse or relative was driving.

If you are a passenger on a motorcycle, you have rights as well. You are more likely to have access to No-Fault insurance to pay for your medical bills than the driver of the motorcycle. Motorcycle passengers injured in accidents can also bring a claim against the driver of their bike as well as the car that hit them. Again, this requires significant investigation, so please contact our MN motorcycle accident lawyers as soon as possible so that we can pursue your case.

Please contact our office and one of our attorneys will answer your questions about your specific situation.
