Question by Gimotion: I was in an auto accident christmas eve.?
I was in the left turn lane, waiting for the light to change. I got my green arrow and proceeded to turn left. Half way through the turn I was hit by a white car that ran the light. I had four other people in the car besides myself three of which were watching the traffic light with me so I wasn’t wrong in turning. I ended up going to the hospital along with three out of my four passengers. I was able to even talk to the cop except when he asked for insurance, names and birthdays, I had hysterical children and I was in severe pain. The next day a police man comes by the house because they forgot to ask for my phone number. Wished me merry christmas and left. An hour later he returned to give me a ticket for not having “proper proof of insurance” (printer out of ink so couldn’t print) But he saw I was covered and told me to just take that to court and they’ll “throw it out”. Then he gave me a ticket for failing to heed traffic signal!!!! Seriously??? When I protested he says that he wasn’t the cop on duty, he switched shifts with another officer for christmas; so he didn’t have the details??? I haven’t gotten the other party’s insurance info, or even there names! I know it was to black males, teens or early twenties, pants around their bottoms, and one had on a baseball hat. I contacted my insurance and filed a claim, and I’m not sure what to do now. I’m in considerable pain, and when I went with my sister to go visit ma for the holidays the following day, every time she made a turn I “quietly freaked”. Suggestions and any insight is welcomed and appreciated. Toilatta
