COMPENSATION FOR PASSENGER WHEN DRIVER ON METH CAUSED ACCIDENT – MN ATTORNEY
Our top car accident lawyers have handled several cases where the crash occurred because the driver of a car was high on methamphetamine. Meth is a big problem in Minnesota, and can seriously impair the decision making and reaction time of a driver. In two of the cases we have handled where the driver was high on meth, the injuries were very serious.
If you are a passenger in a car, and the driver gets into an accident because he or she was on meth, you are entitled to compensation. This can come from the driver’s auto insurance, or the insurance of the owner of the vehicle, or even your own auto insurance.
As a starting point, the car accident passenger is entitled to No-Fault insurance to pay for medical bills and wage loss. When you call our office, a lawyer will provide you with a free consultation to explain your rights to you and get your No-Fault benefits compensation started. When a passenger is injured because of the driver’s fault, the passenger is also entitled to additional compensation, depending on the seriousness of the injury. This additional compensation can from the driver or vehicle owner’s auto insurance – depending on the seriousness of the injury. Sometimes there is also additional compensation available if the driver of the vehicle was high on meth at the time of the crash.
