Passengers injured in single vehicle accidents may have a claim against the driver of the vehicle. While the driver of the vehicle may be a family member or friend, pursuing a claim against the owner of the vehicle’s insurance company may be your only option in being compensated for your injuries. You do not have to pursue your family member or friend’s personal assets while pursuing a claim against their automobile insurance company.
