In such case you can file a FIR at the nearest police station. 

If the police refuse to register the FIR, the same can be with the intervention of the court by making a written complaint to the magistrate.

Alongwith that you can ask for claim from the MACT (Motor Accidents Claim Tribunal)

Lodge an FIR and also a claim under MACT.
