Can passengers seek damages from car accidents?

Whether you’re riding with an at-fault driver or you’re in a vehicle hit by an at-fault driver, serious injuries can result due to no fault of your own. The mere thought of being held responsible for the financial damages resulting from an accident isn't fair. Fortunately, California agrees.

If you find yourself injured in a car accident in California or Texas, the law allows passengers to seek complete compensation for their injuries. The damages you may seek include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

However, this isn't something you want to face on your own. At MVP Accident Attorneys, we fight for you so you can get the compensation you deserve.


Insurance companies are in the business of saving money, not giving out settlements. That’s why it's imperative to have an attorney experienced in speaking to insurance companies handle your case.

It's important that you don't directly speak to the insurance company or sign a settlement agreement without your attorney. The right guidance can strengthen and maximize your claim.

Most personal injury cases in are settled out of court. When you have one of our attorneys advocating for you, the settlement can be much greater than if you attempt to settle on your own. While money doesn't take away the trauma and the physical consequences of the accident, it does relieve the financial burden.


What you do at the accident scene can have an impact on your injury claim. If you're injured in a car accident, it's important to call 911 and get checked out.

Next, someone should contact the police and get an officer on the scene. This is how the accident report needed in the injury claim is created. Stick to facts when giving a report so you don't say things that could be misconstrued. Also, make sure you take photos of the accident scene and your injuries if you can.

Finally, go to the doctor and get a checkup. Even if you don’t have obvious bleeding or broken bones, a doctor can help identify internal injuries as soon as possible. This will give you the best chances of obtaining a just settlement.

Once you have completed the above steps, call your attorney as soon as possible. Calling while the evidence is fresh will make the case stronger so you can obtain the compensation you deserve.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
