Helping Injured Passengers Understand Their Rights Following An Accident

Injured passengers in motor vehicle accidents may file claims targeting the driver of the vehicle that the passenger was in or the driver of the other vehicle. In some cases, it may be appropriate to file a claim against both parties.

At the law firm of Manzi, Seccareccio & Merwin, P.C., in Lowell, we will review your case to determine the appropriate target of the personal injury claim. Our lawyers have over 50 years of experience handling these cases in Lowell, Dracut and across Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire so you can be confident in our ability to get you fair compensation.

A Tangled Web Of Insurance Issues

PIP, Med-Pay and other insurance issues are complicated when only the driver of a vehicle has been injured in a car accident. When the passenger has been injured, an additional layer of complexity is added.

Our attorneys know how to navigate complex insurance issues. We will sort through the coverages available, making certain that your short-term need for medical treatment is addressed while pursuing maximum compensation to cover you in the long term.

The Importance Of Acting Fast

It is important that you act immediately after a car crash. If you delay, evidence could be lost and that loss of evidence could have a negative impact on your case. Many people who were injured as passengers hesitate to file a claim because the driver of the car is a friend or family member. Keep in mind that this is why people have insurance coverage. The driver’s insurance company will provide compensation on the driver’s behalf. You should not be left to struggle with medical bills and other costs because of something that was not your fault. If you have concerns, we encourage you to talk to us about them.
