If you were involved in a car crash, but you weren't driving, what you do next differs slightly.
As the passenger in the vehicle, you'll have a far easier claim to make than anyone involved as a driver. Basically, you need to prove:
- Liability (i.e. someone is to blame)
- Damages (how badly you were injured because of the accident in terms of dollars and cents)
If the accident involved two or more vehicles, you'd need to make your claim against every driver involved. As such, you'll also need their insurance information. Obviously, if your driver rear-ended someone in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you probably don't need their insurance info as it's impossible they were at fault.
Once the case is ruled on or settled, the party or parties responsible will pay your damages (though, of course, insurance should have helped out before this time if you suffered an injury).
