About a month ago, I was hit by a drunk driver who then tried to flee the scene. However, I am a Marine of 4 years, and I don't let people get away with things that easily, so I gave chase about 3 blocks to a dead end street, where I was able to obtain a license plate to give to the 911 dispatcher who was on the phone the entire time. The driver then found a way to cram his car between two houses and escape down a side alley.
The plate came back to the president of the school district in a nearby city. It ended up being her daughter's boyfriend who was the driver. Her insurance company did an investigation and accepted the claim, and agreed to pay for all damages to my vehicle as well as provide a free rental car...HOWEVER, I am not satisfied here.
I have contacted the police department handling this case several times, to which I am continually told there is "no movement." Well, there HAD to be movement for her insurance company to accept the case, which leads me to believe that due to the high local political status of the registered owner (being the president of the school district), the police swept it under the rug. I am beyond infuriated and livid.
I have called several lawyers as well as lawyer referral services, because I want to press full charges against the driver of the vehicle, the vehicle owner (for her negligence in allowing an uninsured person to drive under the influence and recklessly), and I want to also press charges against the police department for their failure to handle this case properly.
The lawyers I was able to get free assistance from all basically told me I'm up #### creek without a paddle (pardon my layman's term). Please tell me this is not the case...because if I don't get some kind of legal assistance in obtaining justice, then I will go out and get my OWN justice.
