My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: California
About a month ago my boyfriend and I were stopped at a red light I'm the left turning lane. He drives a manual car, and his foot came off the break and rolled into the car in front of us at about 1-2mph. (we were at a COMPLETE stop) It was about 5:30 on a Froday night and occurred at one of the busiest intersections in our city. No one pulled over as a witness, seeing how it wasn't a very noticeable accident. She had already called 911 and would t pull over out of the turning lane causing other drivers to honk and get upset. My boyfriend got out of his car and coaxed her into pulling into the lot right after the turn where the police met us. She wouldn't get out of her car (she also had 2 children) who were fine and hopped right out of the car. The dave was minor to both cars, the license plate on our car bent. She requested to leave in ambulance due to "dizziness." The cops informed us to take as many pictures of her car as we would like. We gave our statement, she gave hers. When I recieved the report she claimed she was hit going 30 MPH. The summary on the report basically states exactly how we recall the accident occurring. Now we recieved a letter from the insurance that she got a lawyer because she wants recovery from her accident. My question is how can she claim these injuries and get a lawyer who will represent her with out an damage to the car and the police report in our favor? It just seems that she is over exaggerating and it's very stressful. My boyfriend and I are in our 20's and she was at least double my age. The insurance told us how it seems suspicious and isn't adding up. But even if she sued us, we don't have money to pay. Can anyone offer any advice on what to expect or how to handle this? Sorry this is so long. Thank you!
