    What if I was injured as a passenger in a car accident?

    Many people don’t know what to do as a passenger in a car accident. They may be reluctant to file a claim for financial compensation. Why? Because the driver responsible for causing the crash may be a friend or a family member. The passenger may feel conflicted and think that filing a claim is somehow getting the driver in trouble. They may worry about damaging their relationship.

    But it’s important to remember that this is not about getting anybody into trouble. And you are not asking your friend or family member for money. By filing a claim for compensation, you are simply asking the insurance company to meet their responsibility – which is to help people when they have been hurt.

    Unfortunately, the insurance company doesn’t see things that way. Their goal is to pay accident victims as little as possible because that helps keep profits high. They have many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation. Attorney Beasley helps you fight back.

    What if I was hurt as a passenger in a bus accident?

    People take the bus every day in Nashville and throughout Tennessee. Children take the bus to school. Adults take the bus to work. Tourists take bus tours of Music City and people take trips to athletic events. But it only takes one negligent driver to cause an accident that leaves several bus passengers hurt.

    Bus accidents can be complicated because there are many different parties involved. These include the bus driver, the driver’s employer, the city, and the driver of a car or other vehicle. Each party may have their own attorney and be covered by a different insurance company. Determining liability and holding negligent parties accountable can be tricky.

    Attorney Eric Beasley knows how to sort through these complex cases to determine which party – or parties – were at fault. He determines the total damages you suffered and fights for compensation.

    What if I was hurt as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft accident?

    Ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft are very popular. But what happens if you are hurt in an accident while you are an Uber or Lyft passenger? Whether the crash was caused by the service driver or the driver of another vehicle, you have the right to financial compensation for your injuries.

    Both Uber and Lyft provide up to $1 million in coverage when the driver has the app on and there is a passenger in the car. However, recovering compensation is not a simple process. Insurance companies may still deny liability and try to avoid their responsibility for paying compensation.

    Attorney Beasley has extensive experience handling cases involving Lyft and Uber accidents. He can help you navigate the claims process to recover the compensation you need and deserve.

    Fighting for passengers injured in accidents

    It’s normal to have questions after a crash. Can I get a settlement as a passenger in a car accident? Who pays medical bills for passengers? How much can a passenger get in a car accident lawsuit? Can a passenger be held liable for a car accident? That’s why you need to talk to an attorney who can help you get answers.

    Our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts. We gather evidence, including any video from nearby traffic cameras. We carefully review accident reports, medical records, and other documentation. Attorney Beasley identifies witnesses and interviews them. If needed, he consults accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.

    Insurance companies often try to downplay the seriousness of your injuries. Or they may seek access to your medical history to try to prove that your injuries were pre-existing. Another tactic they use to try to save money is to offer you a settlement. An adjuster may contact you soon after the crash with a settlement offer – one that falls far short of covering your damages.

    Attorney Beasley determines the true damages you have suffered. He builds a strong case that proves your accident was caused by a negligent party and demands compensation. If the insurance company won’t agree to a settlement that meets your needs, he’ll be ready to fight for you in court.

    If you were hurt as a passenger in an accident, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. Contact experienced Nashville car accident attorney Eric Beasley to schedule a free consultation.
