A: Based on your facts, it appears that the other driver was at fault. You could consult with an attorney in Puerto Rico to discuss what your next step would be in light of the other side’s refusal to acknowledge the police report and testimony from two witnesses. Try to find out if there were any surveillance cameras in the vicinity that may have captured footage of the accident.
