On this week's episode of The Legal Difference, attorney Wes Gralapp talks about what to do if you're injured in a car wreck as a passenger. Fault is determined differently for passengers. The at-fault party is responsible for injury compensation, whether it is the driver of the vehicle you are in, or the third party. Their insurance company will be responsible to you as a passenger for the injuries you've sustained. Wes also describes the different types of compensation you may be eligible for, and how Louisiana's comparative fault laws determine how much fault is contributed to either or both drivers.
