My apologies if this is not the correct section for this, but I just need to vent/hear what people think I guess...
In August, about a week before my mom, brother and I were planning on driving from NJ down to FL for school, I was driving to the dentist and got into an accident. The intersection I got hit at is pretty busy all day long, and there have already been tons of accidents there so I know to stay alert and drive carefully, cause who wants to get in an accident? I remember distinctly that as I was approaching the intersection (the part of the road I was on was actually a little hill as well) I saw that a lady was about to turn out into the intersection, so I slowed down, but then I saw that she stopped turning out because I guess a car was coming from the opposite direction of me and she decided she didn't have enough time to turn out. Well, I guess after that car passed or something, she turned out into the intersection, but I hadn't passed yet so our cars collided. (Sorry in advance if none of this makes sense, as you can tell it's hard to describe haha)
I was pretty pissed, and rightfully so I would think, and I got out of the car, etc. waited for the police to get there and all of that jazz. Now, I'm 75% sure she said "sorry" to me and that she did take the blame. I'm fairly sure I remember thinking "wow, if I was her I definitely would NOT have taken blame" because I know you're not supposed to do that in this situation blah blah blah (Thank you Intro to Law class!)
Well now it's 2 months later, and my mom just informed me that the lady is saying it's MY fault and that she didn't see me cause I was travelling too fast. In a couple of weeks I'm going to have to speak with an insurance agent and tell them my side of the story. I'll tell them what I am sure of, of how the lady intitally hesitated before turning into the intersection, etc. But do I tell them that she apologized and took the blame, since I'm not 100% sure of what she said?
This is all pretty annoying, and she's probably blaming me because I'm sure someone is pretty upset that a brand new Acura SUV was totaled.
