In cases where passengers are injured as a result of their driver’s negligence, those passengers and their families often want to avoid “suing” the driver while still getting the compensation they deserve. Fortunately, Wisconsin’s laws allow injured passengers to bring claims only against the at-fault driver’s insurance company, without requiring those passengers to sue their driver personally. Injured passengers may also have additional insurance available to them through their family’s own insurance coverage.
