This is in Texas:
Back in January I was smashed by a hit and run driver. Probably a drunk driver too since it was so late at night. I was initially in pain for about a day after the accident. I was un-certain about going to the hospital because since it was a hit and run, it seemed ineveitable that he'd been insured. Prior to this, I had medical bills from 2 other hospitals so I was wary of racking up more.
Well, long story short...Filed a police report and after 3 weeks of 'tracking' the license plate down, going to leasing office to find out what apartment he lived in, mediation court, etc...turns out he had insurance at the time. But claims someone took his car during the night while he was sleep. (*coughs* bullshit)
Well, insurance company has taken since March 9th to give me an answer that the claim is denied. Reason being, is they are taking the word of the driver (who could not even generate a f-ing police report) that he was not driving that night.
When all this happened, my worst fear was that he would be un-insured. And now that he is...it disgusts me that someone can say, "I wasn't driving...wasn't me, and they believe and take his word...yet he cant even say who was driving!"
Im asking the Lord for strength not to walk over to his house (again) and bust him in the face for lying and trying not to take responsibility for making me go thru all this crap!
And I know in Texas all these drunk Mexicans be hitting and running. It boggles me that insurance is dirt cheap here yet in Florida its through the roof yet people here drive higher than a kite, all drunk...and the insurance companies dont give a damn.
So here I am, all ****ed up...my rear wheel is bent in at a 45 degree angle and no idea what to do. What additional steps could I take from here? Is it too late to get an attorney involved?
