I AM surprised she lied, actually. But maybe that's simply because the accident was so clearly her fault she wouldn't be able to make up a story.

I still don't understand the police not making out a report. I know when my husband does one, he has to draw the cars and streets and arrows and such on there and make it clear who was at fault. I would think that insurance companies would require it. Otherwise how do they determine which person's insurance is responsible? Do they just take your word for how it happened?

That's exactly the report I did... with arrows, etc.

I've been involved in way too many accidents in my life time. Every time the police were involved a report was filed, and I had to fill out the form with details of the accident. I believe in this state a report must be filed by the driver for every accident; I even had to send one in when I hit a deer.
Springcurly, when I was younger a pizza delivery guy did the exact same thing to me. We didn't call the police, but I went to the police station to file a report of my own. The guy had the nerve to tell me I wasn't supposed to pass on the left side of the car. Hello! you were parked! I made sure I attended the court date, told my story, including the excuse the guy offered, and the judge ruled him in the wrong, 100%.
I hope the repairs go smoothly and this isn't a ton of trouble for you.

Next time make sure the person at fault gets a ticket. I don't care how minor the accident is - if I'm not a fault, the other driver gets a ticker. Period.

Would I take advantage of someone if they didn't order I get a ticket and I was at fault? hmmmmmmm, potentially.

In Massachusetts the drivers each fill those out. The police file a separate report if it is alleged at the scene that one of the drivers was breaking the law or if the damage is estimated to be over a certain amount.

I don't know about other states, but in CA, if no one is injured, I don't believe the police are required to prepare a report.

Also, if damage is less than $500, the people involved in the accident don't have to file a report with the DMV. If it is more than $500 or someone is injured, its the drivers' responsibility to file the proper form with the DMV, not the police. This may be why the police did not file a report in this case.

(warning: this info is off the top of my head - do not rely on it if involved in an accident in CA )

My sister's boyfriend is a state trooper and he said that sometimes he will give a ticket but not at the scene because it's too emotional a time. I suppose it's possible that that could happen in this case.

With the passage of time people start to believe their own BS. She's thinking she's going to fool the ins companies into at least splitting the costs. Don't let it worry you. Your initial statement will carry a lot of weight plus the logistics of how it happened, how the vehicles struck. You should find a way to run into her and ask her if she knows the penalty for insurance fraud.

The problem with this is that under the law, unless the officer can clearly determine a law was broken to cause the accident in an after the fact investigation, if the officer did not observe the traffic violation, he/she can't just issue a ticket based on the other drivers say so.

Near the top of this page.

Howdy Cyn! It's about time you came back.


Sorry Back to the topic. Around here it's hit and miss some cops do it others don't. Usually they tell you if the cars are driveable go to the nearest station and file your report there.

You might not have a leg to stand on. Something very similar happened to me years ago. I was driving down one of the streets in town. It was winter and dark outside. I saw a car over at the curb with their lights on and running. I figured they were just sitting there. Anyway, just as I was going past the car she pulled out and hit me. My husband (not my husband at the time) was in the car with me and witnessed the whole thing. She apologized, admitted it was her fault -- she was looking at street signs and house numbers, and gave us her name and insurance info. A few days later we hear from my insurance company that she claims she was not at fault (she got home and we think her husband got involved).

I explained that she pulled out just as I was going by. I was asked what part of my car hit hers. I told them the right front. . . this is the clinker in the whole thing. . . because I got hit at the front of my car I was "not driving defensively enough." I was told something to the effect that when someone pulls out and you hit them with the front of your car if you were driving defensively you should have been able to stop in time (which I don't think is always possible). If she had hit the back half of my car, she would have been at fault. Therefore, it was not her fault. My only recourse was to take her to small claims court. I was told it would take longer and cost more and not guarantee a different outcome.

I haven't read thought this whole thread so don't know if anything similar has been said or not. Just thought I would tell my story. Believe me at the time I was mad. . . just like you.
