Auto accidents can be difficult enough for the involved drivers, and even more so for a passenger. Passengers involved in an auto accident in Tennessee will sometimes have to go thru two separate insurance companies for compensation related to his/her injuries.
Steps You Should Take
If you were a passenger involved in an auto accident in Tennessee there are certain steps you should take to ensure your rights are protected:
The Accident Report
When the investigating officer comes to fill out an accident report make sure you speak with said officer. Providing the officer with your personal information, and your statement of facts will ensure that you are appropriately listed on the accident report.
Get Insurance Information
If possible, obtain insurance information from the driver of the vehicle in which you were a passenger and that of the other involved vehicles.
Get Medical Statements
If needed seek medical treatment on the scene or from your primary care provider shortly thereafter.
If neither involved parties had insurance coverage at the time, or they were underinsured, of the accident then you also have the option to file a claim with your own auto insurance carrier to seek compensation. Even if you weren’t operating your own personal vehicle your injuries and damages may still be covered under your own personal auto policy.
Get An Attorney
Seek the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney.
