About Passenger Injury Compensation

If you are a passenger injured in a motor vehicle accident, call Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, to discuss passenger injury compensation with a qualified pedestrian accident lawyer. (780) 760-4878

I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced Edmonton injury lawyer serving central and northern Alberta. If you are injured by the driver of the vehicle you were in, you may have questions about passenger injury compensation.

If the driver was intoxicated, your knowledge of the state of intoxication of the driver is critical. The defence of volenti non fit injuria (voluntary assumption of risk) can preclude you from successfully suing the driver. The application of this defence is fact specific and you should always discuss the important facts with me.

Call (780) 760-4878 or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss your case and passenger injury compensation. Free consultation. Free parking.

Joe took my case after I was dropped by my previous lawyer of almost 5 yrs. Joe explained the challenges my case was facing and how to best proceed, I feel he was honest with his assessment of my case and I appreciated his straight to the point attitude. I am very pleased to say he and Nicole (his assistant) always treated me with respect and never made me feel like any question or concerns I had were stupid were or bothersome. Much to my surprise my phone calls and emails were always answered in a very timely fashion. Nicole played a very big part in the smooth process of getting this case settled . Joe and Nicole are a great team and I highly recommend Joe if you are looking for a no nonsense straight to the point lawyer who gets things done. Thank you for settling my case so promptly.

Joe Nagy......all the way!!!! My accident happened in the fall of 2016 in BC . I first contacted a firm that is advertised everywhere only for them to tell me that I seemed to have a handle on the situation and to contact them again in 2 years. I then called Joe's office and I didn't have another worry. He took all of the thinking out of it and made everything easy for me . We exchanged a few phone calls throughout the year and a half and then it was over. Natalie was friendly and a great girl to work with. Joe cares and works for his client. Call Joe!

I worked with Joe for almost 4 years after my accident and I can honestly say he worked very hard for me. There are very few in the legal world that actually care about you, that see you as more than a paycheck, Joe is one. When I was suffering, he went out of his way to make sure I was ok, even helping me out of his own pocket when times were really tough. He is thorough, thoughtful and will be an absolute shark in fighting for you. Thanks for all your help Joe!

About Motor Vehicle Passenger Accidents

If you are a passenger injured in a motor vehicle accident, like the one shown here, discuss the facts of your case with Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, and ask about passenger injury compensation.A passenger in a motor vehicle accident can sue a negligent driver or another person who caused a collision with the motor vehicle he was in and may qualify for passenger injury compensation.

About Liability

A passenger will generally be found to have no liability because he was not operating the vehicle. There are some exceptions to this rule—for example, where the passenger grabs the steering wheel thereby interfering with the driver’s operation of the vehicle. Arguably, the passenger may have caused the accident or contributed to the cause of the accident.

The Contributory Negligence Act

The Contributory Negligence Act can operate to reduce the amount of damages claimed by the passenger according to the degree of his fault. The Contributory Negligence Act apportions degrees of fault to passengers who fail to wear seat belts. A driver of an automobile also owes a duty of care to his passengers to ensure they are seat belted before the vehicle is put into motion. Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children are properly restrained in children’s car seats.
