Can a passenger recover damages for injuries caused by the other driver in a Florida auto accident case?
In a Florida car accident case often times passengers are injured in the accident. Passenger is actually in the best position possible in the car accident legally speaking. The passenger can bring up a claim against the other vehicle, driver and the owner.
Likewise, the passenger could also bring a claim against the driver of the car that they were riding in at the time of the crash, and this is because Florida is a comparative negligence fault. You actually have to look at the accident, determine whether there’s fault attributable to one or to both drivers of the vehicles that were involved in the accident.
