Who Can File A Personal Injury Claim on Behalf of an Injured Victim?
When filing a personal injury claim, the person expected to lead the process is the victim. However, in certain circumstances, it is possible for another party to file the claim on behalf of the victim. Sometimes, these circumstances apply even to car accident victims. An example where another party can file a personal injury claim on behalf of a car accident victim would be when the victim is incapacitated by a catastrophic injury.
