Question:

If I am injured as a passenger in a vehicle, can I sue the driver for damages?

Answer:

Injured as a PassengerYes, you can present a claim for your damages against the driver of the vehicle you were riding in. The fact that you were not wearing a seat belt or the seat belt wasn’t buckled will come into play, however, as comparative negligence on your part. As a result, the extent of your damages or injuries that you might have sustained will be reduced, potentially, by the percentage of fault assignable to you for not having that seat belt buckled.
