Can a passenger injured in an Ann Arbor car accident sue the driver of the car?

Yes. A passenger injured in an Ann Arbor car accident can sue the driver of the car if the driver was negligent (wholly or partially at fault) in the operation of the vehicle that lead to the passenger’s injury. To receive a settlement, it would need to be proven that the passenger’s injuries qualify as a “serious impairment of a body function” as defined under Michigan law.
