Common Questions About Personal Injuries in Clearwater, FL
Can I file a Lawsuit If I Wasn’t Wearing My Seat Belt?
Yes, you are able to still sue the driver and the owner of the car, if you were injured in an accident while not wearing your seatbelt. However, keep in mind, that because of comparative negligence, the jury could place a percentage of liability on you for your injuries and the verdict could be reduced by that percentage.
Will My Auto Accident Case Be Affected Because I Gave a Recorded Statement to the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
Your auto accident case can be affected. The reason the other driver’s insurance company tries to get a recorded statement from you is because they want to pinpoint you on the answers to your questions. If you make statements about your injuries, if you make statements about your pain, they can use that against you at a later time.
Can a Passenger Recover Damages If the Injuries Were Caused By The Driver of the Same Car?
Yes you can. As long as you are not married to the driver of the vehicle. You can be a relative. You can be a friend. You can definitely recover damages if the accident is the result of the driver.
