Question:

Can I sue the driver of the car I was riding in if I was injured in a car accident?

Answer:

Suing the DriverNormally, the answer would be yes. As long as there’s negligence on the part of the driver of the vehicle you were riding in, a claim can be presented against that driver. There are some situations, however, where you might not be able to present a claim. You can’t present a claim against your spouse, for instance, if they’re living with you, or a parent or sibling if they live in the same household. Generally speaking, however, if you’re riding with a friend or a roommate or a coworker and they run into the back of somebody or injure someone, a claim can be presented against that driver.
