My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: michigan
I pulled out and got hit by a truck with a snowplow at night, i didnt see his lights so i assume they weren't working or weren't on.I wasn't injured and at the scence i was in such shock,rattled and scared i admitted fault by just saying i pulled out infront of him forgetting to mention i didnt see his lights on at all on the plow.i was issused a ticket for failure to yield(which i want to avoid). well im only 21 so i let my mom handle the insurance and she talked to them and they said even if he didnt have his lights on i was still be at fault for entering traffic and the most that would happend if i faught this is he might get a ticket if it went to court, i wouldnt have mine taken away.. is there anything i can do to fight this , is my mom right?
another question, i was pulling out of work(private drive) and had my uniform on and this was at 10pm at night so they would have no reason to see if i was drinking really, but the didnt even see if he was drinking? i find that odd since he admitted to going 60 in a 55 and this was new years day.why wouldnt they check to see if he was drinking?
