what are my options as a passenger in a car accident?

In some cases, a passenger may potentially file a claim for injuries sustained in a car accident. A third-party injury claim can be filed against the driver of the vehicle you were hurt in. As a passenger in an accident, you are entitled to seek help for your injuries. However, every situation is different. For instance, if you were a passenger in a vehicle where the driver of the car was driving recklessly and crashed. Passengers, then can file a third-party injury claim against the “at-fault” driver’s insurance company. When scenario like this occurs, many injured passengers are usually afraid to take this route. For the reason of knowing the driver personally and afraid of getting them in trouble. BUT, this is not accurate. In fact, this is exact reason why we pay for car insurance.

If another car was involved in the collision. Most attorneys would file a claim against the second car’s insurance company in which we refer to as 3rd party. However, you have the option to file a claim on the second driver’s insurance (3rd party), the insurance company of the vehicle you were a driver in (1st party) or both.

  • Bodily Injury (BI): Car accidents and bodily injuries go hand in hand. This claim allows you to seek for compensation for any injuries you suffered.

Types of Car Insurance Coverage:

Liability Coverage

When operating a vehicle in the state of Texas, it is mandatory for drivers to be covered by the states minimum policy limits. In which Texas it’s set at $30,000.00. Within this coverage there are two elements:

  • Bodily Injury liability: Covers the cost associated to injuries inflicted on a person if you were to crash into them.
  • Property damage liability: Covers the damages caused to another person’s property.
Uninsured / Under-insured Motorist

Uninsured motorist covers you when you are in a car wreck with someone who does not have any coverage. The extent of the coverage varies state by state.

Under-insured motorist coverage is when the at-fault driver has insurance but the liability limits within that coverage is not enough to take care of any medical bills resulting from the injuries sustained in the collision. Under-insured coverage will them take care of the remaining balance.

Personal Injury Protection

PIP will ensure you are paid for any injuries resulting from your automobile crash. This type of protection varies from state to state so it is encouraged to ask your insurance company if this is even offered.

GAP Coverage

This type of coverage is only offered on new vehicles. If you are to get into an accident and total your car GAP will step in and pay the remaining balance owed that the insurance company did not cover. This also applies for if it were stolen.

Will My Insurance Rates Increase After a Car Accident?

There are many variables that play a role into car insurance rate increases after accidents. In fact, car insurance rates are well calculated predictions. All of the variables are based on the data they have collected to determine how you are measured as a risk factor to the insurer.

As a matter of fact, insurance companies take into consideration where you live, age, gender, driving record, vehicle type and then determine the cost and risk you are to insure. Keep in mind, each and every state decides their own rules and regulations. These rules and regulations are usually influenced by mandatory policy limits, difference in living costs, population size, climate conditions and much more.

In addition, each factors are measured differently. Your car insurances rates could quite possibly shoot up or be reduced when any of the risk factors shift. For instance, depending on where you live and the data collected for that particular region. Insurers can decide the cost of risk you are associated with the amount of accidents, criminal activities, population, damaging weather and more. If you live in an area that has a high risk of the variables mentioned, it is safe to say you can anticipate to pay higher car insurance rate.

If you have been in a car accident it is your right to explore the possibilities in filing a claim with your insurer. Regardless of the outcome, insurance rates are not solely dictated by car accidents. Domingo Garcia believes his clients are entitled to know the truth.
