Liability Dispute

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I was recently involved in a non-injury traffic accident in Atlanta, GA. I was traveling through an intersection when a car ran a red light and hit me. The other driver claims that she had a green light as well. No witnesses. 

 

The police were called and they put the other driver at fault in their report. After she hit my car, I was redirected and rolled through 3 lanes of apposing traffic. Because this is such a busy intersection and my car did not hit a car coming the opposite direction, the officer determined that the other driver ran the red light. 

 

I filed a claim with the other driver's insurance on the same day of the accident. After over a month of no one returning my calls, I received a call from the agent informing me that they were denying liability. I only have liability on my policy, so I am not covered by my insurance. 

 

Any suggestions for what I should do next? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank You, 

 

Chase

I assume what you really meant is that none of the other witnesses stopped to give statements.  If you "rolled through 3 lanes of apposing [sic] traffic [in] a busy intersection," there certainly were other witnesses.

That's rather specious logic.

Since the other driver's insurer denied the claim, your only recourse is to sue.
