Remember, other driver may have caused the accident then you should not request the person for payment. You should inform his insurance company. You should bear in mind that the insurance company is not on your side. Actually, the insurance company is doing business and wants to pay you less. The company will try to prove that you had also fault and you have responsibilities for the accident and will reduce the amount of your compensation.

You should provide all the documents including the police report, the cause of the crash and the medical bill which you spent for your treatment. If you are not able to provide the documents, the company will dismiss your charge, and you will not receive compensation.
