Two friends driving down a deserted road.

If you are injured while riding in a vehicle of a friend or acquaintance, you may feel confused about what you need to do to take care of yourself. You probably have many questions.


Do I have to file a lawsuit against my friend?

No matter what the circumstances, if you are injured because of someone else’s negligence, you must put your own needs and interests first. If you are injured in a car crash while riding in your friend’s car, a lawsuit against your friend is not the first step. If another driver caused the accident, you would seek  compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.  Regardless, you should never feel guilty or hesitant to protect your own interests.
