    Default Hit By a Speeding Car While Turning Out of a Community Driveway

    My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: NH

    I am asking this question for my wife. My wife was exiting my community entrance to make a left right to the road. This community entrance is on a hilly road. While she was turning, a car was coming up hill in high speed and hit the rear corner of her car. She did not see his car when she was starting to exit the entrance. Both of them did not get hurt.

    While waiting for police, I arrived. He told us he was rushing to a store to buy baby supply. However when police came, he denied driving in high speed. Too bad I did not record his message earlier. Based on what he said, police said it was my wife's fault.

    I really do not think it was our fault. We appealed the ticket and scheduled a court date. How much chance does my wife have to fight in the court for my ticket? We will not hire lawyer. Do we have 50/50 chance ? Thanks for any reply.

    If the other driver does not appear in court, the officer will have to make his case based upon your wife's statements to him as well as his observations at the scene. Your wife can object to any statements about what the other driver said as 'hearsay'.

    How good is visibility down the road, and how is it affected by the hill? Is speeding common on the road?
