Your Attorneys in Tallahassee Florida Answer This Important Question

Passengers are rarely found to be at fault after a car accident. However, this does not mean that their legal responsibility is completely erased. Experienced attorneys in Tallahassee Florida will tell a passenger that they have two options. You can either file a claim against the driver of the vehicle that you were riding in or another driver on the road. In the following video, Tallahassee personal injury attorney Eric Milles explains that passengers can sue the driver of the car that they were riding in and also look for other possible defendants.

Passengers are almost never at fault for a motor vehicle accident. Therefore, it is imperative if you are a passenger who has been injured by the negligence of another, whether it be the driver of the vehicle that you are a passenger in or another driver on the road, that you secure independent legal counsel who will look at all possible defendants.
