Injuries to Passengers in Car Accidents
When many people think about obtaining compensation after a car accident, they imagine that any recovery must be sought by the injured driver. This is simply not true. Passengers hurt in motor vehicle collisions always have the right to file for their own damages.
Attorney Stephen Walsh is located in Danvers, Massachusetts and serves the entire North Shore region. He helps people who are passengers in severe car accidents obtain the compensation they deserve. As a rear-seat occupant or front-seat passengers, you have the right to obtain fair compensation from the insurance companies. Attorney Walsh handles all car accident cases involving:
- Whiplash or other soft tissue damage
- Slipped or herniated discs
- Nerve damage
- Back strains or sprains
- Blunt-force trauma
- Bruises, abrasions and broken bones
- Burns or disfigurement
Have you been injured as a passenger in a car accident?
A passenger is never at fault in a crash. Likely, you have sustained many of the same injuries as the driver of the vehicle, if you were not hurt even more seriously. That said, you are entitled to the same compensation under the law.
When you speak with Attorney Walsh, he will discuss your legal options and help you understand your rights. He can help you obtain medical records and other evidence that will substantiate your injury claim during the negotiation process, and if necessary, at trial. It is our paramount aim to see that you receive the full amount of damages to which you may be entitled. This could include money to cover medical expenses, lost wages or pain and suffering.
