    Unhappy I was at fault but hurt

    I had a car accident last year (April 2005). Another car crashed into the driver's side rear of my car. Because I had the signal, the accident was deemed to be my fault. The officer gave me a ticket, which was dismissed by the court.

    I had a passenger who put in a claim against my insurance company. The other driver, who admitted to the claim adjuster that she was going 5 miles over the speed limit, also put in a claim. Neither of these had surgery, although they are said to have had "soft tissue injuries."

    I had surgery and couldn't take care of myself for a week or two. I had a concussion and a rib contusion.

    Because the accident was my fault, since I had the signal, I cannot find an attorney who will take my case and sue the driver who hit me. I'm looking for help.

    if you were at fault, what are you hoping to sue the other driver for?

    I was charged with the accident, but the other driver admitted that she was going over the speed limit. My insurance adjuster told me I could sue, because she was partially responsible. He said she hit the very rear of my car, which might mean if she wasn't speeding there might not have been an accident. He said she was partially responsible. But I can't find an attorney who agrees with him.

    This means that you have no case.
