Passengers injured in a car accident can sue the driver for damages. In fact, a passenger can sue both drivers involved if both drivers were negligent in the crash. If a passenger is fatally wounded in a car crash, surviving family members can sue for damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Of course, in either case, the injured party or family of the deceased would have to prove both liability and damage. An experienced attorney can help acquire the evidence needed to prove negligence in your claim.
