My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: California.
Here is my question. I was at a gas station and I saw a guy getting a jump start in the exit driveway (very wide driveway) so I pulled around him (to the right of him) and after a brief stop and looking both ways I pulled out to the right on the street. He must have JUST finished the jump start as I pulled out because he also pulled out and turned right just a few seconds later. As I was turning on to the street I could see his car start to roll out but it was too late. He sharply turned onto the street and smashed into my car (despite me laying on the horn at this point). He got out and started raving that it was my fault but I don't see what I could have done differently. I saw that he was parked in the exit so I think anybody would have just gone around them. If it was he who hit me (I drive an SUV by the way, not like a small car) I think he just was in a hurry and wasnt looking. Could the insurance company possible say it was my fault or nobody's fault? I have a huge deductible Im scared of getting stuck paying! Nobody was hurt, just my car.
