Passenger sues driver after 1-car accident in St. Clair County

When a car accident results in injuries here in Illinois, victims can file personal injury lawsuits against the drivers who are responsible, should they so choose. This is a way to both hold negligent drivers responsible for their actions as well as obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other costs related to the accident. However, what happens when the person who is injured was riding as a passenger in the negligent driver's car?

Many people know that after a car accident, it is possible to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against a driver who was negligent and caused the accident. This is typically done in order for the victims to either recover compensation for their related medical expenses and time spent away from work, or to pay for funeral expenses and pain and suffering caused by a fatal car accident.

One of the most frustrating types of car accidents for victims and their loved ones here in Illinois are hit-and-run accidents. It can be very difficult to cope in the aftermath of such accidents because victims are angry that the person who caused the accident did not have the courage or respect to come forward and accept responsibility. In addition to the emotional toll, there is also a very tangible cost tied to such car accidents. Because the person who caused the accident ran from responsibility, the victims may find themselves at a loss to pay for their medical bills and property damage.
