Injured driver not at fault failed to wear seatbelt.
Question Details: The driver cited with a ticket turned left before the lane of oncoming traffic was clear. Another driver struck the driver at fault. The driver at fault and his passenger were wearing a seat belt and obtained no injuries. The driver not at fault and his passenger were not wearing seat belts and were taken to the hospital. The driver at fault's car attained much more damage than the driver not at fault, yet the two in the more damaged car were un-injured, because of their seat belt use. Due to the circumstances, will the driver who was not at fault be able to successfully sue?
I don't understand. Who told you the driver was not at fault? Merely because he or she was driving straight? It doesn't work that way. The driver may be less at fault. If the driver truly was not at fault or less at fault, one can always sue. So the driver and passengers can sue. The issue becomes whether the suit is successful and if so, for how much.
