When a car accident takes place in New Jersey, there can be many different people affected. If the crash involves two vehicles, then each driver is going to be involved, of course. However, any passengers in the vehicles may not have a direct connection with the drivers. That brings up a question that not many of us may have considered: If we are riding in the vehicle of a friend or acquaintance and get injured in a car accident, how do we recover damages?
It’s this sort of question that makes having a good attorney who is experienced in passenger injury claims a priority. At Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, we have handled numerous cases over the years involving injuries to passengers out of our offices in East Orange. We know that it is important to get compensated for your injuries when you have been hurt in this way, especially because the situation can feel so uncertain.
If You’ve Been Hurt In An Accident, You Can Use Our Help
People may be tempted to go it alone if they’ve been hurt in a car accident. When you’re hurt and weren’t the one driving, it can be confusing as to which insurance company you should work with. Is it your own? Or should you look to the policy held by the driver of the car you were in? Maybe that responsibility falls on the driver of the other vehicle involved.
Whatever the case may be, getting to the root of the issue can be difficult for people who don’t often face this situation. Fortunately, as experienced personal injury lawyers, we have the skills and knowledge to guide you through the process and help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
