Commentary: Single vehicle crashes are common on country roads and, surprisingly, one of the leading cause of death in motor vehicle accidents in Texas. There is no information about whether there was more than one person in the vehicle and what their conditions are at this time. If a passenger was injured their situation may be particularly complicated as they may have to fight two insurance companies to obtain compensation for their injuries: the drivers and their own. They will claims on the liability coverage, PIP and Med Pay on their own, and if their medical bills exceed the liability policies, then their own uninsured/underinsured coverages may be triggered.

However, they may be the same insurance company if they are family and that could help simplify the insurance claims, but only just a little bit. The liability coverage, med pay and PIP and any uninsured/underinsured may be triggered as a result of the accident. Those are all separate claims that need to be made. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help weed through the complicated mess of filing insurance claims and negotiating settlements.
