If I am a passenger in a vehicle and sustain injuries because of a car accident may I make a claim for my injuries?

Yes, of course you can make a claim against the driver and owner of the vehicle.  This is true unless both the driver and owner of the vehicle do not have insurance coverage at the time of the accident.   Both drivers may have a portion of the fault for your crash.

 

If this is true, there is still a possibility you can make a claim if you purchased Personal Injury Protection Coverage, Medical Payments Coverage or Uninsured Motorist Coverage with your insurance policy.

 

In fact, you may even make a claim under your own Personal Injury Protection Coverage and Uninsured Motorist Coverage for  injuries sustained from another vehicle such as:

You are a pedestrian injured by an automobile

You are a patron at your favorite restaurant and a car crashes through the building.

You are at any venue in which a car strikes you.

You are on a bicycle and get hit by a car.
