If you were injured due to someone else's negligence, you may be able to recover for your injuries and damages. Do you know who the at fault party was? Do you have his/her insurance information to make a claim? If the other driver is uninsured or a phantom driver, contact your own auto insurance company to make a claim for your property damage, and if injured, for your injuries. Your passenger would do the same - contact the other driver's insurance company or your insurance company if the other driver was not insured. If you sustained serious injuries, you should contact an attorney ASAP to discuss your options.
