When the car accident victim is related to you, you need to know that if their medical insurance cannot cover the cost of the incurred medical costs, then you will probably be asked to settle them. However, you need to know that you can also choose to pursue a claim against the auto insurance of the driver responsible. You are within your rights to do this.
