Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, you would file a claim with the insurance company of the driver who hit you......they would evaluate the claim, the injuries, determine who is at fault based on the accident report, etc. They would likely offer a settlement for your medical bills and pain and suffering.
If you can't reach a settlement, then you would have to file suit against the driver and invoke his/her insurance coverage.
You may also have to file a claim with your insurance company for medical bills to be covered until you reach a settlement or sue the driver's insurance. IF you do this, your insurance company would have a claim against the driver's insurance for what it pays (called subrogation).
