  • If you are injured in a crash, regardless who is At Fault you may claim
  • If you are the at fault driver and injured the insurance for the car you are driving may or may NOT cover your injuries.
  • If you are not the owner of either auto you may not claim for damage to either vehicle, only the owner of the vehicle may do that.
