Do I have to sue my family or friend if I was involved in an auto accident if I was a passenger?
- In a two car accident, if someone comes to me and they’re injured and I want to bring a claim on their behalf, I would typically make a claim against both parties/both vehicles, and let the defendants sort out who’s at fault.
- Don’t forget, although it can be awkward, you, as a claimant, are looking for compensation for your personal injuries.
- As to the friend or family member, if you don’t want to go beyond an insurance policy, you don’t have to.
- We would not ever look for personal assets of a friend or family member who you sue, but only up to the limits of their insurance policy.
