One thing that a lot of people ask our firm about concerns accidents like this one where they or someone they knew was a passenger in the crash. Generally speaking, liability in this context is pretty simple. The basic rule is that unless the passenger somehow was directly responsible for the accident, there is someone against which they can make a claim.
