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

PASSENGER IN FAMILY MEMBER’S CAR OR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT

You can be compensated for your injury in a car accident 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 every MN auto insurance policy and part of what was purchased by paying the premiums. For more information, see our blog post about passenger’s rights. Our top car accident lawyers have recovered insurance compensation for many people who were a passenger injured when their husband or wife or relative was driving and was at fault / caused an accident. You can even get car insurance compensation if you are injured because your child caused the accident.

If you are a passenger injured in a motorcycle accident, 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. A motorcycle passenger injured in an accident 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 call us and speak with a MN motorcycle accident lawyers as soon as possible so that we can pursue your case.

If you have been injured in a MN car accident where the driver was a spouse, brother, sister, child or other family member, please contact our office and one of our attorneys will answer your questions about your specific car accident or motorcycle accident situation. Our Minnesota lawyers have over 25 years’ experience successfully making sure people receive the compensation they are entitled to. A lawyer will protect your rights as a passenger even if someone from you family was driving the car or motorcycle.
