Can a Passenger Sue for a Car Accident in Wisconsin?

Click below to share this on social media:

Suffering through a car accident is already a big deal, and it’s one that can leave you struggling to recover for years after your wounds have healed. Worse, you may have suffered your injuries as a passenger, not as a driver. That leaves many people confused about their rights to compensation. 

So, can a passenger sue for a car accident in Wisconsin? You may have more options that you expected. Fortunately, your lawyer can help you understand your claim. Continue reading to learn more.

Your Right to Sue as a Passenger

As a passenger and not one of the involved drivers, you might be concerned about your options to sue. Fortunately, you don’t have to be behind the wheel to obtain compensation for your injuries

Instead, the person who injured you is still responsible for your suffering. It can also be more difficult to shift the blame on you for the car crash. Fortunately, your lawyer can also help you build your case against the responsible driver. 

Making sure you file against the right person will be vital, though. You’ll need compensation from the person responsible for your injuries. That could be one of the drivers, or another party, such as the manufacturer of the car’s defective parts. Speak to your lawyer if you’re not sure who the responsible party is.

Compensation for Injured Passengers

If you’ve been injured by a driver, it’s important to seek out the full compensation you’re eligible for. You need those funds for your recovery, so don’t hesitate to seek out your full claim. 

That means getting the full financial costs covered. Although you weren’t driving and may not have to worry about car repairs, you might have suffered a brain injury. Those costs can add up and be long-lasting. They should be included in your claim amount. 

You may also be due compensation for your mental and emotional suffering. These losses are intangible, but your lawyer should have the resources to calculate these losses, too. 

If you’re struggling to find your compensation, you can speak to your lawyer about the compensation you’re owed, which may include any of the following:
