In Texas, passengers in vehicles that are involved in an traffic accident are able to make recoveries from the drivers of adverse vehicles, the driver of the vehicle they are a passenger in, and in some instances the driver of the vehicle they were in as well as the drivers of adverse vehicles.

In Texas, if you are involved in a car crash as a passenger, you can pursue claims against any drivers involved, including the driver of the vehicle you were in. Beyond that, you can also sue people and entities that may have contributed to your crash and injuries in other ways, such as the vehicle’s manufacturer, property owners, and drinking establishments that over-served an intoxicated driver.

Many auto insurance companies will have existing contracts with body shops and repair shops in your area. These contracts typically benefit the body shop and the insurer by exchanging referred business for the body shop for lower labor and material rates.

However, these agreements may benefit you as well. By choosing a repair shop recommended by an insurer, you will generally be back on the road faster. Additionally, most reputable insurance companies require that contracted body shops meet certain equipment and training requirements and also require that contracted body shops provide lifetime warranties on any repairs made.

Still, there are situations in which you may want to use a body shop not contracted by the insurance company, which is your right.

If you choose a body shop recommended by an insurer, you may get some push back from claims representatives. This is because claims adjusters are often given set regarding the number of claims that should go to the insurance company’s direct repair shops. They will tell you that the shop is not on their list and that they will not be able to handle your claim effectively, or say that it could be weeks before an adjuster will be available to write an estimate on your car.

Do not be intimidated. If a body shop is truly reputable, they will make sure you receive any and all the benefits of choosing the insurer’s recommended body shop.

Typically, a passenger who gets hurt in a car crash has an easier case than a driver or any other type of personal injury plaintiff due to the fact that the passenger generally does not share any liability (though there are exceptions). In a two-car accident, for example, fault will normally lie with one or both of the drivers.

However, the passenger must still prove that:

  • The crash was the defendant’s fault
  • The plaintiff suffered damages
  • The defendant’s actions resulted in damages
  • The extent of the damages sustained

With this in mind, a passenger injury claim will proceed just like any other car accident claim. Just as in other auto accident cases, the passenger would want to gather the insurance information for any drivers involved in the crash and file claims with the insurance companies of any of the drivers he or she believes is liable for the crash.

Of course, if the accident were a single-vehicle crash, the passenger would only file with their own driver’s insurance company.
