Sevierville, TN asked in Consumer Law, Traffic Tickets and Car Accidents for Tennessee

Q: I was involved in wreck. The agent told me the guy admitted he was at fault. The agent avoided my calls for over 3 weeks

I finally got ahold of someone from the insurance company after almost 3 weeks and they told me I was at fault just because I hit the other person first. The other person involved ran a stop sign and I was not able to stop in time. I was wondering if I have a case?

A: Call a competent attorney in your area today. There are many pertinent facts needed, and you do not understand what is going on. Even if a property damage tort only in your case, you can mess it up quickly. Citations in Court can destroy you also. Comparative Negligence may apply.

A: If the insurance company for the other driver is denying fault, your option at this point is to turn in the property damage to your insurer, if you have coverage. Submit any medical bills to you health insurance carrier and consider whether you want to hire a lawyer and or file a lawsuit against the other driver and owner of the other vehicle.
