Some splendid person hit me this week
Right at the feed store when I was going to get my dog some chews, and now he's trying to say I was at fault.
I don't have insurance, as it expired before I could get funds enough to pay for it in bulk. I gave him my old insurance providers information, as he requested it, but I don't know why he'd need that information anyway.
What happened is I was driving in behind him, and it looked to me like he was parking, so I pulled in behind him and was about to park in this parking space and he rear ended me in my rear passenger door. Completely shattered my glass, and near bent my door in two. The insurance company came by to do an estimate on the damage, and said the costs of fixing it likely will outweigh my car's value, so, it's probably going to get totaled.
I gave my statement of what happened to the insurance, and she said that he alluded to wanting to back up into the space that I was in. And when I said I was just about to finish parking, she said he probably didn't see me because he's got a large truck. I don't know if that's a win for me, or what?
Yesterday he called asking if he could send something in the mail. Something about a dent or what not (He's hard to understand on the phone) and it turns out it's a preliminary estimate, which, the insurance paid for, and it totals to about 1k.
My car is going to get totaled, and I'm going to receive probably less than what it's worth, and he's going to fix up your dent with a nice coat of paint and potentially state that I have to pay for it? Excuse me? He hit ME. I'm not a mind reader. My car was turned and I was trying to focus on turning in straight and being a good driver. What would have happened if I had already been in the spot? Would he still say I was at fault if I had already parked and he continued to run me over?
I am beyond irritated... and I don't know what to do.
I'm beyond irritated right now. I have never been in an accident before.
