My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: NY
I was involved in a car accident two weeks ago. Basically I was stopped at a red light on a one way, when the light turned green I went , a car service flew passed a red and smashed into the passenger side of the car where my wife was sitting. As we were sitting in the ambulance people told me there was one witness , and that the other driver of the car service ran away from the scene, the cops were on scene and knew that the driver was not at the scene there were two passengers in HIS car who were in the back seat and were slightly injured . Approximately a half hour later the driver came back to the scene, the passengers that were in his car told the police that it was not the same driver that was driving them. I thought that I would have no problem proving that this accident was not my fault until I picked up the police report and all it said was I said he passed a red and he said I passed a red, and under witnesses it said a name, number and address and nothing who side the witness was on or anything. I have at least 15 people who were at the scene who knew the driver of the vehicle ran away and the people in his own car claim that it wasn’t the same driver yet the police decided that it wasn’t important enough to put on the police report. What are my options? There was $1,300 dollars of damage to my vehicle and his car was totaled, and my wife is suffering from bad whiplash.
