Passengers Have Personal Injury Claims
Just because someone is involved in a single car accident where no other drivers or vehicles are invovled does not mean they cannot recover for personal injury damages. To the contrary and assuming the passengers played no role in the accident then all of the passengers could file a claim against the driver of the vehicle and his insurance company for bodily injury damages to include head injury and medical bills incurred whcih given that there are head injuries invovled and a helicopter airlift could be quite expensive.
Passengers May Be Able to Stack Insurance
When multiple people are involved in a car accident, the insurance coverage of the one vehicle may not be enough to cover all of the damages. Without getting into the specifics and the complicated details, there are times when people may be able to stack insurance policies so as to make sure there is enough insurance coverage to compensate the injured person for all of their damages to include medical bills and personal injury.
