Passenger Injuries in Michigan
It is not uncommon for a passenger to sustain injuries in a car accident. The AAA Foundation For Traffic Safety reported that the number of passenger injuries and fatalities is actually 50% higher than the rate of driver injuries and fatalities. An extensive study was conducted based on driver age and the rate of deaths and injuries for every 100 million miles driven.
Passenger injury claims can be very complex and are difficult to win due to complex insurance laws. Oftentimes, the driver of the vehicle is the victim’s friend or relative and they are hesitant to file a claim and cause their insurance rates to skyrocket.
