Yes. If your injuries were caused by the negligence of someone else – the driver of another car or even the driver of the car you were in – you may still have the ability to recover compensation for your harms, injuries and losses.
If the driver of the car you were in caused the crash, you should not hesitate to seek compensation – even if that driver is a friend. You won’t be seeking to recover from that driver’s personal assets but rather through his or her insurance policy. The driver has been paying insurance premiums for this exact reason.
