Question: How Do I Claim A Personal Injury As A Passenger In An Auto Accident?
Your claim for injuries as a passenger in an auto accident depends on who is at fault. If the driver of the other car is responsible then you should make a claim against their policy. If your own driver is at fault then they are financially responsible for your harms. If both drivers are at fault each of their insurers are financially responsible. Theoretically you can start your claim by providing notice to all potentially responsible insurers. If the person or people who are at fault refuse to cooperate you can identify their insurers and policies by a copy of the police investigation through the responsible department or the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles. Of course, it is always wise to consult a lawyer before doing so.
