attorney for injured passengers & passengers at fault
injured passengers of an at-fault driver can claim compensation
Passengers injured in auto accidents can file personal injury claims even if they were in the car of the at-fault driver. However, there are a couple of scenarios that may make it difficult for them to collect damages:
passenger disctraction car accidents
Often, boisterous passengers can cause a driver to make a critical mistake.
A driver can defend a claim against a passenger by asserting that the passenger was even more at-fault for creating a distraction.
The driver could prevail on the issue of liability or the passenger’s claim could be reduced under Missouri’s pure comparative negligence law.
passengers injured due to drunk driving
If a passenger does not know the driver of the car has been drinking, the fault lies entirely with the drunk driver.
However, when a passenger who has been out drinking with the driver all night, or has otherwise had opportunity to observe that the driver was intoxicated, a court may find that the passenger assumed the risk.
