Passenger Injured in a Car Crash. Do I Have a Claim?


Passengers who are injured in a motor vehicle accident may be entitled to compensation under California law. Indeed, passengers in motor vehicle accidents often are said to have a “full value” claim because they are almost always free of comparable fault for a crash. It does not matter whether the driver of the vehicle they were riding in was grossly negligent in speeding, running a red light, or otherwise driving recklessly – passengers can still recover compensation for their damages.
