Can a passenger recover damages for injuries caused by other driver in Florida auto accident case?

Yes, absolutely, a passenger can collect for any injuries and disabilities as a result of a car accident from the other driver. In fact, most of the times, passengers are considered to have no comparative negligence on their behalf, meaning that they didn’t contribute to the car accident because they weren’t a driver, they were a passenger, and if they were belted, they were seatbelted in the seat, then there should be no problems to making a claim against the other driver.

Are There Alternatives to Going to Court in a Florida Auto Accident Case

A common misconception is that every car accident case has to be filed in court, and it’s really not true. I usually tell my clients about 65% of the time we’re able to resolve your car accident case without having to file suit. Even when we do file litigation in your car accident case, most of those do settle. The chances of going to a full jury trial in most of these car accident cases are probably about one in ten or less.
