I was a passenger when the accident happened. Can I sue the driver?

Many people are reluctant to file a claim if they were hurt while a passenger in the car of a friend, co-worker or relative. But it is important to remember that drivers in Virginia are required to buy liability insurance coverage. This means they have paid premiums that will provide for injured victims in the event that an accident occurs.

If you fail to take legal action, you could end up paying out thousands of dollars in costs while the insurance company avoids paying a claim it should be responsible for. It is not fair for you to suffer financial loss and the insurance company to keep the premiums that the driver paid for protection.
