The few facts you provided present a lot of legal issues to consider, like does the construction company have any responsibility, was the other driver solely liable, was the other driver working at the time, etc. these issues raise questions as to the amount of available insurance and sharing of fault. You really do need to get a consultation from a good accident lawyer.
If injured, you are in the best position you could be as a negligence free passenger. You have the options if making claims against the other driver, your drivers insurance for pip and possibly liability and/ or uninsured/under insured motorist. You can also claim against your own pip and um/uim. You should discuss all options with an attorney if you are hurt.

If you have been injured you need to speak to a local personal injury lawyer. Same goes for your friend.
I don't want to just repeat what the other attorneys have said but it is the correct advice. If you have injuries as a passenger you may need to try to collect against both the other driver's insurance company and your friend's insurance company. They will point the finger at each other and refuse to cover your injuries. In cases like these it is nearly impossible for you to get a fair settlement from the responsible party's insurance without the help of legal counsel.
