Um....you hit her...you might actually be somewhat at fault. You're supposed to have your car under control at all times. When I've had accidents like that, the fault has been split between both parties.

I'm pretty sure that when one car is proceeding according to traffic and the other car does a crazy maneuver and gets hit, it's the crazy maneuverer who's at fault. At least around here.

No.

The car on the road has the right of way.

Same here. I believe you're supposed to look before pulling into traffic. At least that's what they taught us in driver's ed.

Really? We hit someone who ran a stop sign a couple of years ago, and since she was the one who didn't stop, she was fully at fault, so she did all the paying.

That's true about the fault thing.

I have this weird feeling that I'm going to crash my car now for being so judgemental. So, I guess I'll have to apologize and say that the girl was probably just scared and didn't know what to do. Maybe she has a bf, husband, parent who will beat her because of what she did. Nobody really knows.

Way to make some assumptions there.

Who said she was white?
Actually, she wasn't white.

She was, however, saying she lived in Hamilton, Mass (I don't even know where that is) but clearly she lives in Somerville, because that's where the accident was and that's where she's parked every single day.

I'll breath easier when I get the $500 check, then I'll take my car in to get it fixed and get a rental.
Hamilton is up near where I grew up on the North Shore... if that's where her parents live she has some MONEY, sue her!!

I'm inclined to think she SAID she lived in Hamilton so that her insurance would be lower.

Same here. Must be different in different places, but I think that common sense dictates that someone driving normally hitting someone doing some crazy move out of nowhere means that the person doing the crazy move is at fault. *shrug*

Sorry you dealt with that, SC, but I'm glad they are finding her completely at fault.

Let's start a new thread and make up an entire life story about this dumb girl. That might be fun.

(Let me make it clear I'm not making fun of you or criticizing you, slinky. I kind of enjoy your imagination.)

I'm still trying to figure out why the police didn't do an accident report. How can you prove anything without one?

I don't know! I thought it was weird, too. But he told me to got the station and pick up a report and fill it out myself, make 3 copies-- one for the registry of motor vehicles, one for my insurance, and one for the police.

I called the police department today to see if they'd reviewed the report and ask if the responding officer had also written a report and they said that he made a notation that said: "Minor accident, papers exchanged."

That was precisely my thought. I was hit 2 years ago making a left hand turn, while someone tried to go around me, on the left. The cops filled out a complete report and told me that people will always try to negotiate at the scene, to avoid a report. But you should always get that report because people will try to change their story. It's the best way to protect yourself and if I recall correctly, my insurance company required it. But I live in NYS. Maybe MA doesn't require it.

I've been in two accidents in my life, and in neither one did the cop fill out a report. My sister got run into twice in the last two months, and again, neither cop filled out a report.

To be honest, and no offense to the good cops out there, but it seems like most of the time they're too lazy, and since they "know" insurance is going to cover it, they don't really give a flying fig.

She'll be one of those girls who gets a job, gets pregnant and collects disability, and then interviews and gets a new job WHILE on disability.
Are you all really surprised she lied? I guess I don't live in nice honest town, but I'm surprised when people actually tell the truth even when it's their fault and costs them a lot - esp with car accidents.

Geez. You get mad when you say I'm being too judgemental AND when I try to forgive people or try to understand their mistakes?

Like I said, I generally don't agree with many of you, anyway.

AND...I'm just not an "it is what it is" kind of person. I'm not a guy. I guess I also believe in karma.
