Re: Rear Ended Because Brake Lights Non Function
I would certainly see if the at-fault party's ins. co. will pay first/admit their insured was at fault (they should) before considering suing.
or - if they won't pay instead of suing, you can contact your ins. co. & let them "fight" it out with the other co. unless you don't want to get your ins. co. involved.
Most accidents when they happen are reported to both ins. cos. & the ins. cos. will determine fault.
It will certainly help you greatly & determine the other part at fault if the other party was "definitely" cited.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
