Can I Sue the Driver of the Car I Was a Passenger In If Injured In a Car Accident in Louisiana?

Absolutely you may sue the driver of the car you were riding in as a passenger following an accident. Really it doesn’t matter who was driving the car, typically. It just matters what fault they may have for the injuries that you’ve suffered, so if you’re riding in the car with a friend or family member, and as a result of their carelessness something should happen to you, absolutely we can explore potential action against them, and more importantly their insurer. Many people don’t want to go after a friend or a family member personally, but as long as they have insurance, we can limit our action against their insurance company, and only recover what insurance would be available to help make you whole for your injuries.
