It is not uncommon for passengers to be injured in a motor vehicle accident. Passengers, however, typically have a different set of rights than the vehicle’s driver. After an accident, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney.
At Beebe and O’Neil, our Norwich passenger injury lawyers have extensive experience representing injured clients. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, we might be able to determine negligence on the part of one or more individuals. It is likely that the accident was caused by the driver of your vehicle, or the driver of a different vehicle. Once liability has been determined, we will negotiate with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier for a beneficial settlement. Through a personal injury claim, we will aggressively seek monetary damages for your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
