Can a passenger settle a car accident case with a friend?

Can a passenger settle a car accident case with a friend?

One common question we receive from those injured in a car accident is what rights does a passenger have to settle if the accident was caused by the driver who happens to be a friend or family member.

The simple answer is that in most cases there is nothing preventing a settlement to be obtained from the insurance policy of a friend or family member. Insurance adjusters though are quick to carefully evaluate these cases to ensure that they are being provided the correct information from everyone involved about the claim.

There may be some limits on the ability to settle a car accident case if the driver and passenger live together or are on the same automobile insurance policy. Before making any decision whether or not your case is covered, consult with an attorney first.
