I was a passenger in a car that was in a serious Michigan car accident. The driver of my car was at fault in the accident. Can a passenger sue the driver of the car in Michigan for injury claims?

Yes.  The driver of a car in Michigan has a duty to drive safely to everyone on the roads, including passengers in the driver's own car.  Even if you are a friend or family member of the negligent driver, you can still make a claim for your personal injuries.  The driver's insurance company pays the settlement and the insurance coverage and rates to the driver are typically not affected.
