Can a passenger recover damages for injuries caused by the other driver in a Florida auto accident case?


Yes, a passenger can definitely recover for their injuries in this type of case. First of all, it’s very unlikely that a passenger can be at fault in this type of case since he wasn’t driving either vehicle. He can possibly recover from one driver, or both drivers, depending on whether one or both of them were at fault. If they were both at fault, he might be able to recover some amount from each one depending on the percentage that they were at fault. He would simply have to prove that one or both of them were liable for the injury to some extent, that they caused the accident or contributed to causing the accident, and also, he’d have to prove what his injuries were, what level of injuries he had, the cost of treatment, how long his treatment lasted, pain and suffering that he may have experienced or may continue to experience. His lost wages, and also his loss of ability to earn a living, loss of enjoyment of life that he can’t do things that he enjoyed doing in the past, such as physical activity and other types of damages.
