Recent statistics reveal that passengers account for roughly 16 percent of all car accident fatalities and nearly a quarter of all injuries in a number of states across the nation.
Some passengers are injured in multi vehicle accidents where two or more vehicles are involved in a collision, while other passengers are injured in single car accidents where their driver loses control of a vehicle resulting in a crash.
When passengers are injured in an Iowa motor vehicle accident, recovering full compensation can be complicated so it is important to work with an experienced car accident attorney to receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
When you are a passenger injured in a car accident, the first source of compensation is often the at-fault driver’s liability insurance policy or the at-fault driver personally when insurance does not cover the full extent of your injuries, lost wages or other damages.
An experienced personal injury attorney will pursue damages for medical bills for treatment of your injuries as well as recovering economic damages for lost wages when you have to miss work or have been fired because of issues related to the accident. Other damages such as pain and suffering may also be included in your compensation.
