Accidents treat people differently. Two people can be in the same car during a crash. One is severely injured. The other one isn’t. But that doesn’t mean only the injured person has a claim.
The uninjured person has a claim of his or her own if (1) they were in fear of being injured themselves and/or (2) witnessed injury to a close family member.
If you or a person close to you has a claim like one of those described, it makes sense to speak with a personal injury attorney.
